SEOS DISPLAYS of the UK is to supply the visual-display system for a MAPO MiG-29 full-mission simulator built by Slovakia's Virtual Reality Media (VRM).

The company has selected a six-channel Prodas HiView projected display from SEOS for its FSM-29 simulator. The display provides a 180í horizontal by 90í vertical field of view on a spherical-section display, with six projectors.

The UK company says that VRM's MiG-29 full-mission simulator is the first to be built in Central and Eastern Europe, and includes the aircraft's head-up display and helmet-mounted cueing system. Other MiG-29 simulators have been produced by Russia's Penza and Canada's CAE.
