A major exhibitor at ITEC 2019 in Stockholm this week, Leonardo will focus visitor attention on its recently announced International Flight Training School (IFTS) as well as the MORPHEUS virtual reality (VR) training tool.
Visitors to the Leonardo booth will be able to interact with XR MORPHEUS, an innovative virtual reality training tool allowing for system familiarisation, operating and maintenance procedures in a synthetic, photorealistic environment. It supports instructors during the preparation and execution of practical training, allowing the easy creation of training sessions.
The IFTS, a training academy launched last year by Leonardo and the Italian Air Force, will show how it covers the entire advanced and pre-operational phase of the military pilot training syllabus. Simulation-based trainer and virtual maintenance training solutions will be on display at ITEC. These systems, fully representative of the real aircraft, are devoted to classroom students (pilots and maintenance technicians respectively).
As leader of the European project Ocean 2020, Leonardo will also focus on the integration of unmanned platforms of different types with naval units and the exchange of satellite data with command and control centres on the ground.
In the helicopter sector, Leonardo is able to provide the largest scope of flight, mission and maintenance training capabilities and is constantly expanding its global footprint.
Telespazio VEGA Deutschland, a subsidiary of Telespazio, a joint venture between Leonardo (67%) and Thales (33%), is exhibiting its latest simulation-based military training systems including the company’s involvement in helicopter programmes. Among them, the company is showing its virtual maintenance trainers as well as the aircraft systems trainers.
