 - October 3, 2013, 3:20 PM

FlightSafety International is introducing a new-generation Vital 1100 visual system that provides “mission-specific imagery with vastly improved scene content and unprecedented levels of detail” for its flight simulators. With the upgraded system, hundreds of millions of scene elements are processed every second and presented along with environmental effects such as “physics-based weather models” of rain, snow and hail that develop and react as they would in the real world. Other features include dynamic shadowing and enhanced shading effects, providing pilots with valuable cues and added realism.
