Product engineers at Lockheed Martin Corp. in Bethesda, Md., sought digital recording and streaming technology for F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) mission simulators. They selected the DGy digital recording tool from RGB Spectrum in Alameda, Calif.

Engineers will incorporate the DGy units in the F-35 mission simulator’s pilot pods, where they will record everything the pilots observe during maneuvers-including avionics, out-the-window imagery, target acquisition, navigation, and weapons control.

Additional DGy units will be part of the instructor’s operator station and the after-action review (AAR) facility. Mission simulations will be recorded simultaneously while streamed to DGy units throughout the simulator and to the RGB Spectrum Multicast Video Server. Following the mission simulation, DGy codecs in the AAR room will replay scenarios to provide a post-flight assessment of pilot performances.

Lockheed Martin Simulation, Training & Support (STS) division in Orlando, Fla., is developing the training program for the F-35. For more information, contact RGB Spectrum online at www.rgb.com.
