  21/03/2011 Remote ATC   

Under the provision of the 6th Framework Programme by the European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport, Equipe partners with Saab AB and the LFV Group to successfully deliver a targeted research project analysing the cost and benefits of performing ATC services from a remotely operated tower.

The Project's goals, to progress the development of technologies, processes and procedures in Air Traffic Management, are aligned with the objectives of the SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) Joint Undertaking, who have issued an award in recognition of the performance achieved.

The concept of the remotely operated tower places cameras and sensors at the airfield, which transmit a real time view to the central management control where it is projected in a 360º view, enabling the air traffic controller to manage and control the operation of the airfield from a remote location.

Equipe designed and supplied a 360º display that presents a seamless, uninterrupted view of the transmitted scene. An Equipe Horizon Display Screen and Nine Equipe Contour Series DLP projectors provide the immersive environment for the air traffic controller. The Equipe ProMap Geometry, Edge Blending and Colour Correction system processes and manages the raw image from the live camera feeds to deliver a corrected image, blended and colour matched for total uniformity.

  26/08/09 Introducing Equipe's Contour 650 WQXGA Projector.   

Equipe are proud to announce the next generation of Contour DLP projectors; the super hi-fidelity Contour 650 WQXGA.

WQXGA (Wide Quad eXtended Graphics Array) is a display resolution of 2560×1600 pixels with a 16:10 aspect ratio. The name comes from the fact that it is a wide version of QXGA, which in turn has four times as many pixels as an XGA display.

Displaying in excess of 4 million pixels, WQXGA offers 33% more pixels than today's LCOS QXGA projectors.

  18/06/09 CAE Selects Equipe Simulation Dome Displays for RAF Hawk T-2 AJT simulators   

Equipe Simulation are pleased to announce our selection to supply two high-resolution dome visual display systems, utilising a multi-channel array of Equipe ContourTM series DLP projectors, in support of the UKMFTS Hawk T-2 AJT simulators to be located at RAF Valley. Earlier this year, CAE was selected to develop two Hawk T-2 full-mission simulators as part of the new Hawk T-2 ground-based training system. These new systems will augment the existing Hawk MK 1 simulators currently in use, as supplied by Equipe Simulation in 2000, and will provide greater fields of view at significantly higher resolutions. Managing Director Terry Burns stated, "We are very pleased to have been awarded this contract and look forward to working with our partners CAE and Lockheed Martin to provide a high fidelity visual display system that will deliver enhanced training benefits for the latest UK training aircraft."

Equipe will work together with CAE and Ascent Flight Training, which is a 50/50 joint venture between Lockheed Martin and VT Group. Ascent is the Ministry of Defence's Training System Partner for the 25 year delivery of the UKMFTS programme. UKMFTS will replace the present flying training arrangements for the Royal Navy, the Royal Air Force and the Army Air Corps. It will cater for the different training needs of all UK military air crew: from the training of fast-jet, rotary wing and multi-engine pilots, to rear crew.

Equipe is an innovative technological company and leading supplier of Visual Systems to the simulation industry for military and civil training and research applications. Equipe has offices operating in Europe and North America and is able to support all requirements of visual applications, from subsystem supply through to turnkey systems that are designed for compliance with customer specifications. Equipe has a comprehensive portfolio of visual system products and has extensive experience in the design, installation and integration of high performance solutions.

  01/12/08 - 04/12/08 I/ITSEC 2008   

At I/ITSEC 08 Equipe assembled their largest and most ambitious booth yet, showcasing the latest Contour 600 and ProMap Auto products. A partial dome display was demonstrated with high brightness Contour projectors and a six-channel G10 IG. Amongst the exciting new technologies and products were:

  01/09/08 Equipe Continental Database   

Equipe's Continental Database (CDB) expands the concept of flight simulation visual training environments from current networks of local airport regions to continental sized areas containing the entire set of operational airfields set within a high detailed geo-specific terrain and cultural landscape.

This is made possible through Equipe's Equater™ CDB automatic modelling tools capable of incorporating very large data sets of detailed digital airfield information. Equipe have developed the tools and processes to update and keep current continental sized simulation environments at regular intervals with an ever growing richness of environmental data whilst integrating fully with the specified visual training features deployed on the most sophisticated training systems.
