Inzpire and Black Kite to Launch Targeted Fidelity Device Simulator at FIA 2016

Inzpire, a UK-based defence and aerospace company, and Black Kite Technologies are to use the Farnborough International Airshow in July to launch the Targeted Fidelity Device (TFD) simulator for the global military training market.

Both companies have extensive experience serving the UK Armed Forces and have combined this expertise to develop the new training system designed to respond to the emerging requirements of global armed forces at a fraction of the cost of current training methods.

Synthetic training is known to be an attractive alternative to live environments when preparing armed forces personnel for operational duty - significantly saving the user time and money, while offering highly realistic and demonstrably effective simulated scenarios.

The Inzpire TFD Simulator is unique in that it has been developed to incorporate a complete replica of a real cockpit, but without the cost of full motion simulator alternatives.

The system can be fully networked, connecting users in multiple locations, to offer effective collective training, linking soldiers on the ground with helicopter and fixed wing pilots and even naval forces.

Where other simulators require the system to go offline for considerable periods of time while cockpits are reconfigured, the Inzpire TFD simulator can change the cockpit in use in under half an hour.

The technology and hardware is provided by Black Kite which has a strong track record delivering training services to UK and international armed forces, including: British Army Apache Attack and Wildcat helicopter pilots, and collective training at the Air Battlespace Training Centre at RAF Waddington, Inzpire will run the training courses.

Jonny Priest DFC, Inzpire's Head of Helicopter Services, said, "The Inzpire TFD simulator is already receiving significant interest from a range of overseas customers, where requirements are steadily emerging for innovative and cost-effective simulation solutions. Discussions are well underway and we are working on customised versions for several potential users. The technology can also, of course, be adapted for use in the civil market in the future."

Inzpire will be exhibiting at Farnborough International Airshow in Hall 1 booth B132 from 11 - 15 July 2016.
