Collins Aerospace, a global leader in avionics and information technology systems for the aerospace and defence industry, commissioned us to manufacturer a 2 metre mini dome for their helicopter flight simulator.
The dome is used as a screen to project the helicopter flight simulation for training requirements, which provides the user a 320° horizontal and 165° vertical view at high resolution.
The composite components manufactured by us provide the core structure of the simulator. Resin infusion and a full in-house assembly were carried out to produce these composite components. The dome’s structure has been engineered to be made from modular tooling to reduce initial tooling costs, lead time and provide guaranteed repeatability.
The 2 metre mini dome was delivered to Collins Aerospace to on-time and have exceeded the customer expectations in terms of quality and precision. This has opened up the possibilities of more work from Collins Aerospace due to our status as a top supplier.
