Flight Deck Officer (FDO) Trainer

This specially developed FDO Trainer ensures high-quality training at considerably reduced cost. It enables trainees to carry out practical training in a way that was not feasible up till now and improves their motivation through modern 3D real-time visualization and highly complex simulation processes. This ViSTIS® solution defines a new quality in FDO training procedures with:

  • Visualization of ship and helicopter
  • Mobile or static motion tracking
  • Training via beamer and/or HMD (trainee)
  • All-in-one transport case

The FDO Trainer is revolutionizing the land-based training of flight deck officers. The Advanced Version with its head-mounted display (HMD) and motion-capturing system enables the trainee to stand on a virtual flight deck. The simulator is based on realistic representation of motion models for ships and helicopters (currently Blohm+Voss Class 124 and MEKO A-200 frigates with SeaLynx, SeaKing and SuperLynx helicopters). In training locations such as hangars, sports facilities or flight decks the movements and actions of the FDO are identical to those in real operations. The use of NATO APP2 procedures for helicopter operations from ships other than aircraft carriers (HOSTAC) means the FDO Trainer can be easily transferred to any vessel that performs its flight deck operations according to these NATO standards. The FDO Trainer is available in two versions:

* Basic version:

  • Visualization of the ship and helicopter
  • Static motion tracking
  • Training via beamer and/or HMD (trainee)
  • All-in-one transport case

* Advanced version:

  • Visualization of the ship and helicopter
  • Mobile motion capturing system (Suit)
  • Training via HMD (trainee)
  • All-in-one transport case
