RTX's Collins Aerospace Introduces Arcus Training Image Generator

  • Company adds hybrid image generation system to training and simulation portfolio

Collins Aerospace, an RTX (NYSE: RTX) business announced today it is releasing Arcus™, a new image generator that combines Collins' advanced rendering and processing tools with gaming technology to deliver immersive, modular aircrew training.

Designed with a flexible, open systems architecture, Arcus™ image generator offers realistic, complex synthetic training environments for multiple platforms including fast jet, air transport, mission, rotary wing and commercial aircraft. Collins' new image generator is developed in partnership with gaming engine developer Epic Games' Unreal Engine technology.

"Effective simulation training requires high-fidelity visual realism, and customers also need these technologies to seamlessly adapt to their varied training needs and devices," said Sharon Tabori, senior director and general manager of Simulation and Training Solutions for Collins Aerospace. "Our new hybrid image generator brings improved graphic capabilities to offer flight simulation experiences that are as efficient as they are realistic."
