Christie Receives Innovation Award for Government of Canada’s Training Simulation Projection Upgrade

Christie®, a global visual technologies company, has been recognized by KMI Media Group’s Military Technology & Training (MT2) magazine as a top simulation and training company for the fourth consecutive year, for its industry advancement, innovation and impact on the military training industry across the spectrum of technologies and services. MT2’s Top Simulation & Training Companies publication recognizes annually, through an impartial group of subject matter experts, companies that significantly contribute to the training community with their products and services.

Christie received the Blue Ribbon for Innovation award for its work with government and industry partners in mating the Canadian government’s Hercules Observer Trainer (HOT) CC130 J-model transport aircraft crew station mock-up with a hemispheric screen, and blending the output of two dual-input Christie Matrix StIM™ projectors, to provide a high resolution and wide field of view from the aircraft. The HOT depicts missiles and gunfire as seen from a CC130-J aircraft, training students to recognize, report, and respond in their manoeuvring aircraft. Employing their headset and countermeasure dispenser, students train day and night missions, stimulating their NVGs with the Matrix StIMs™. Results of data showed that with the HOT, trainees made 79 percent fewer errors and reduced their response time by 11 percent.

“We are honored that the MT2 panel selected Christie as a top simulation and training company again this year,” said Zoran Veselic, vice president, Visual Environments, Christie.
“ Our technology is used in high-performance simulation environments all over the world, and with the Christie Matrix StIM claiming many industry firsts in simulation training, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation and solutions.”

The Christie Matrix StIM addresses all the key requirements of the simulation industry in one compact, customer-driven design. The Christie Matrix StIM enables a new level of training by utilizing both visible light and IR. Through InfraRGB™ illumination (RGB and IR LEDs) and Christie InfraScene™, the unique capability of processing and displaying infrared content, true-to-life NVG stimulation is achieved for realistic and relevant training for difficult conditions of limited visibility and night time operations. With no consumables, the Christie Matrix StIM features extraordinarily long life, image quality and ease of service. Very low power consumption directly translates to lower operating heat, less cooling requirements and savings in electricity for a dramatic reduction in sustainment costs.
