EVA Turns Your Sim into a Fighter

 - December 15, 2006, 6:36 AM

BVR Systems is here at the Paris Air Show with an on-board avionics and environment simulator called EVA–which stands for embedded virtual avionics. The Israeli EVA system provides the pilot with a virtual radar, including air-to-air and air-to-ground modes, virtual weapons, a virtual electronic warfare (EW) suite that can simulate flare dispensing and virtual sensors. A synthetic environment presents the pilot with air, ground and naval virtual entities. These can be friends or foes. For example, you can have a virtual dogfight.

Claimed benefits are lower training costs. The EVA system is integrated on-board the Aermacchi M-346 (here on the static display). BVR also offers an in-flight electronic warfare simulator that can help crews to train against EW threats, both from the ground and airborne.
