Training and simulation for night vision systems

  1. 1. About this masterclass: Night Vision operations continue to grow in importance with EASA/CAA/FAA licensing and aircraft clearances being extended into civilian air operations. The military has always had these clearances since early 1970s. Training is still generally carried out using the aircraft but with some simulation. This masterclass looks at Virtual Terrain Image Generation for Night Vision Googles(NVGs) and provides interactive high- fidelity simulation and training for both air and ground operations, GLONASS in line with announcements made in July. Benefits of attending: • Hear about the latest technology in training in Night Vision Systems • Have the opportunity to better formulate your night vision training to better your squadron's performance • Have the opportunity to raise questions of interest to you during group discussions Who should attend? Air and Ground NVG operations from both the civil and military communities: • Civilian search and rescue • Helicopter emergency services • Police • Organisations that are looking to conduct NVG operations SMi MASTERCLASS SERIES 2014 vision-mc.asp Register online and receive full information on all of SMi’s conferences Alternatively fax your registration to +44 (0) 870 9090 712 or call +44 (0) 870 9090 711 GROUP DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE MC399 2014CENTRAL LONDON Hosted by: Squadron Leader Douglas Vine RAF Retd, Human Factors and Night Vision Specialist, Vineyard Consultancy Services Training & Simulation for Night Vision Systems 9th DEC SMi Presents their 2014 masterclass on
