Vibration platform & control loading
19 December 2014
Moog Industrial Group has delivered a vibration platform and control loading system to Sogitec Industries to support the training of NH90 helicopter pilots on a FFS (full flight simulator).
The Moog Vibration Platform is integrated into a mechanical frame assembly to provide realistic levels of vibration in vertical, lateral and longitudinal directions to reproduce specific NH90 helicopter feel and offer more realistic cueing. The controls of the vibration platform, control loading system and seat have been designed to support the correct spectrum, amplitude and trend of vibration through the desired operating envelope on a vibration mass of 1200 kg.
Christian Normandin, contract manager of Sogitec Industries, commented: "Based on their long experience with FFSs, and commitment to deliver the best possible performance, Moog was able to design and manufacture the vibration platform and control loading system to provide the NH90 pilots with the most realistic training.”
