Reconfigurable Cockpit System (RCS)
Reconfigurable: able to be modified, arranged and rearranged to model different cockpits.
Major RCS components include:
Center Seat Section
The center section is the main component of the RCS. It includes various seating options, touchscreen display options and center stick options for aircraft such as F-18 and helicopters. Helicopter collectives can also be mounted to the left of the seat. Driving controls such as a steering wheel and pedals can be installed for ground vehicle driver station simulator configurations.
The center section base is made of a simple frame system with a main base plate and five inserts. The inserts allow various components to be mounted to the base without requiring modifications to the main base plate and frame. Additional inserts are available for customers that would like to customize the base.
The standard front frame section is designed to hold 24" or 30" touchscreen monitors with a wide and deep opening for various pedal solutions that may be required. The front frame section is removable for customers that want to install their own front frame assembly.
The base center section includes a standard seat (such as the existing RCS helo seat), 24" touchscreen monitor and mounting hardware, and center glare shield.
Both left and right side consoles connect to the center section and are designed to accommodate nearly any type of simulator controls. The top plate of the side consoles are blank and can be customized for installation of various HOTAS solutions as well as the installation of standard Dzus type instrument panels. Users can customize the panel to their needs with stickers, custom instrument panels inserts and other controls. The side walls are removable for easy access.
Center Console Section
Center console sections contain combinations of touchscreens and hardware panels and controls for stations that require side-by-side seating. Examples include the C-130J pilots' station, or helicopter center consoles. This component can have real, virtual or a combination of throttles, switch panels and control panels installed.
Standard section with 3 – 24" LCD touchscreens installed.
