  • F-16C

VMT allows multiple technicians to work together for the aviation industry while helping them reinforce cockpit spatial awareness. DiSTI’s VMT is equipped with features including the ability to launch training scenarios, monitor and control student progress, and set up an aircraft environment for Instructor operating stations.

The F-16C is a cost-effective multi-role fighter aircraft designed for air superiority. With features such as a frameless bubble canopy for enhanced visibility, a seat that helps reduce the effects of g-forces on the pilot, and a state-of-the-art flight control system, the F-16 is one of the most common currently operational military aircraft, with over 4500 F-16 aircraft in operation around the world.

Being a strategic asset for air superiority and defensive operations and serving as the backbone for several defense organizations makes minimal downtime crucial for mission success. To keep the F-16C mission-ready, you must harness the latest technologies to create a virtual maintenance trainer that augments traditional training for aircraft crewmembers.

The DiSTI Corporation utilized VE Studio® to develop the virtual training program that can fulfill the requirements of an international customer operating the F-16C Block 52 aircraft. The F-16C Virtual Training program consists of two applications to support the first and second-line maintenance tasks for flight line crews and maintenance personnel. 

The first application is the F-16C Flight Line Crew (FLC)  Trainer, which assists in training the Flight Line Crew to perform Preflight/Postflight, Thruflight, Launch, and Recovery procedures. The second application is the Virtual Maintenance Trainer for F-16C aircraft. The F-16C VMT trains maintenance personnel in second-line maintenance tasks to support operational checks, fault isolation, and removal/replacement of failed components, seamlessly returning the virtual aircraft to a functional state.

DiSTI used the VE Studio® toolkit to create the Virtual Maintenance Training Environment (VMTE) for the F-16C. The VE Studio® toolkit offers an out-of-the-box development framework ideal for managing the production process and maximizing supportability.

VE Studio®’s turn-key functionality includes proven navigation and interaction techniques with the 3D virtual aircraft, virtual support equipment, 2D interactive aircraft schematics, and display of all cautions and warnings based on the aircraft maintenance documentation. The F-16C VMTE supports the modeling of physical constraints, collision detection, stereo sound cues, and representations of danger areas, such as engine intake and exhaust.

The F-16C training application supports individual and team training, allowing each student to run a standalone training scenario, or connected via Ethernet, allowing two students to operate together. Instructors can control the training scenario and mode of operation, insert faults, and monitor student performance.

This partnership aims to simplify the training process while lowering training and operational costs. DiSTI’s F-16C VMT helps train highly skilled personnel faster while allowing trainees to make mistakes, sometimes of the life-threatening variety, and experience the outcomes with no serious repercussions. The virtual trainer enhances the user’s training initiatives for this sophisticated aircraft by effectively reducing overall training time and costs. 

DiSTI’s Virtual training solutions can log metrics on the software’s accuracy, time, errors, and completion percentage during training reviewed with the training managers. Leveraging new technology will help attract top talent, lower costs improve safety and efficiencies while further growing market share.
