  • CAE provides a myriad of features that can fulfill many types of military training requirements of various degrees of complexity.  Some of these include:

    • Nap of earth (NOE) flying over various terrain types down to 50 feet used for low level flying applications.
    • Helicopter formation flying.
    • Confined area landing (CAL sites) designed to allow helicopter pilots to manoeuvre in difficult and constrained areas (urban or forested).
    • Offshore platforms with landing deck.
    • For cargo training, drop zones with appropriate markings and unprepared strips for emergency landing.
    • Weapon ranges for fast jets that include bombing circles and strafing targets.
    • Underwater databases that are developed for both sonar and visual (camera) applications for a variety of training tasks such as anti-submarine warfare and mine hunting.

    These features, combined with our extensive library of 3D moving objects and vehicles, allow users to quickly generate accurate training scenes and environments.

    A library containing more than 4,000 buildings, trees and 3D features is available and can be applied to generate accurate and highly-detailed synthetic environments.
     
    While satellite imagery can provide excellent image quality at altitude, it is often prohibitive to purchase imagery with a resolution capable of supporting low level flight. CAE has developed its motif technology to support these applications. Motif databases are generated by combining digital data sources that describe geographical and man-made features that are present in a particular area  for example, roads, forest, towns and rules that describe the appearance of that feature in a particular area of the world. These databases can be generated with a resolution and level of scene content to support flight down to ground level.
