Christie Awarded Aero Simulation Contract to Deliver High Brightness, High Resolution Christie Matrix Simulation Projection Systems to U.S. Marine Corps’ AH-1W Weapons Systems Trainer

Christie® today announced that Aero Simulation Inc. (ASI) awarded Christie the contract to supply the U.S. Marine Corps with projection systems consisting of 12 Christie Matrix StIM™ WQ 1-chip DLP® solid state LED projectors for AH-1W Weapons Systems Trainer (WST) Device 2F136A upgrades. Six display system projectors will be installed at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif., and six at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS), New River, N.C. in 2015.

Christie Matrix StIM WQ Projector

The U.S. Marine Corps’ project includes the modification and technical refresh of two existing AH-1W WST systems with the replacement of visual display projectors, image generators and visual databases. With the goal of upgrading the system displays and supportability, while reducing lifecycle costs, the modified trainers will help teach pilot and co-pilot cockpit familiarization, engine operation, tactical navigation, and emergency procedures. The trainer supports standalone tactical training, as well as integrated virtual training with other devices. These features let the students practice essential aircraft operations and tactics skills in an environment closely resembling real world scenarios.

The 2F136A WST device comprises several functional systems producing a simulated environment and emulating real world scenarios for AH-1W Super Cobra helicopter aircrews with each trainer consisting of two visual display domes. The training device’s computer systems control two separate training platforms, one housing a Pilot position and the other a Co-pilot/Gunner position. The system provides Pilot and Co-Pilot/Gunner transition weapon systems, integrated crew, and flight proficiency training.
