Esterline, June 02, 2016 - Esterline Simulation Visual Systems, a new business of Esterline Corporation, has been awarded a contract by CAE USA to provide collimated display systems for the U.S. NAVY MH-60 Technical Refresh and Procurement of Simulators (TRPS) Program.
The total program includes nineteen TREALITY® solid mirror, collimated display (CD) systems that will be installed over a four-year period. Each display system includes support structures, light tightening enclosures, collimating optics, projectors, a projector control system, and an automatic alignment system.
