The Royal Australian Navy recently purchased three Ryan Aerospace HELIMOD Mark III devices to be used to inspire aspirational helicopter pilot and encourage them to join the Navy as Aviators.
In addition to the HELIMOD Mark III helicopter simulator units, Ryan Aerospace developed a unique accompanying unit comprising a PC and monitor with integrated cabling and head-tracking sensors. This allows spectators to see on a display screen what the pilot is seeing in the virtual reality goggles. The display unit has wheels attached and doubles as a shipping crate by being laid down flat, with the HELIMOD device sitting right on top. This allows staff to push the devices easily to the purposely modified van for transportation. The following photos demonstrate the concept:
