Evans &Sutherland has agreed to provide a visual system for Delft University of Technology's SIMONA research flight-simulator, which is now taking shape in the Netherlands. A three-channel "state-of-the-art" visual will be provided for the simulator, which is being assembled with industry support. The composite "shuttle", which houses the flightdeck, has now been mounted on the high-performance six-axis motion base, and a 777 instrument panel and centre console, provided by Boeing, are being installed. The simulator will be moved to a purpose-designed building early in 1998, ready to receive the wrap-around visual system.
