The Rockwell Collins EP®-8000 image generator system introduces a new paradigm for high-end training applications. It combines groundbreaking realism and performance with a scalable, adaptable design that meets the most complex training requirements now and in the future – at the lowest life-cycle cost.
The Rockwell Collins EP®-80 employs breakthrough, second-generation EP2 (environment processor) real-time software to provide full functionality within a high-resolution, round-earth environment. Compatible across the complete line of EP image generators, the EP-80 enables customers to combine COTS PC training devices with high performance systems, yielding a wide array of training capabilities that share common real-time software, databases and host interfaces.
SpectraView displays are ideal for fast-jet, wide-body and rotary-wing flight simulation applications. Its scalable solutions range from small radius, compact projection systems to sophisticated multi-channel full field-of-regard domes.
At the forefront of technology, Rockwell Collins continues to enhance training effectiveness by providing the most advanced training solutions with the lowest cost of ownership. By leveraging strengths in avionics systems development and training systems design, Rockwell Collins delivers total integrated solutions. The company’s diverse portfolio spans the entire training life cycle, from instructional systems design through fully integrated, high fidelity training systems and support.
