CAE is one of the largest producers of collimated displays in the world. Our continuous collimated displays have been a standard CAE offering for many years, both as part of a complete visual system or on a stand-alone basis.
Collimation is designed for cross-cockpit viewing, allowing a pilot and co-pilot to achieve maximum training benefit simultaneously. Collimated displays provide continuous, high-brightness, high-resolution imagery to the flight crew over the required field-of-view (FOV) making them ideal for training tanker and transport aircrews.
Extended field-of-view collimated displays
Extended vertical field-of-view (FOV) collimated mirror displays are also available, providing enhanced visual cues in military applications such as helicopters and fixed-wing transport aircraft performing air-to-air refueling.
Chin and side window displays
Certain helicopter training applications require a greater field-of-view than what can be obtained with a standard collimated mirror offering. Chin and side windows provide an affordable alternative that allows for invaluable visual cues. These window displays can support a collimated or a non-collimated image and the devices ensure continuity by matching the appearance of the image on the main display.
