This is a simulator to train hump yard operators, who put together cargo trains.
The visualization system has a very exact virtual model of a train sorting hump, which is rendered on a number of projectors or monitors. Thus a panoramic view is formed, the same as the operator has in reality. All the conditions, different time of day, season, fog and precipitation can be simulated.
A replica of a real control board allows to control the semaphores, switches and retarders.
Over the years, more than 15 simulators of this kind, each having exact model of a different respective sorting hump were installed in their respective sites. This includes Ekateringurg, Novosibirsk, St.Petersberg, Khabarovsk, Chelyabinsk and Yaroslavl.

We are developing a simulator-trainer for visual and instrumental observations (VIO) for geo-pysical research and Earth monitoring onboard the Russian segment of the ISS.
With this simulator, the cosmonauts work out skills of locaing and making pictures of Earth objects from the ISS.
Client:YU. A. Gagarin research & test cosmonaut treining center.
We present COLIBRI flight simulator-trainer.
It is one of the least costly and easy to use simulators, intended for primary pilots training.
It has two versions - Professional and Standard.
The trainer provides a number of general aviation vehicles - planes and helicopters, including R-22, EC-130, Mi-8 and others.
The realistic environment is implemented as aerial imagery overlays plus some 3D buildings. We composed lessons for certain training tasks, in accordance to the methodology of Sergei Piskunov, a pilot and a flight school head, and we also implemented an automated skill assesment system. Emergency situations (engine and other systems failures) can be worked out on the trainer without any limitations. The software enables instantly modifying the flight conditions, weather, geographic location, and stopping the lesson for critical analysis and restaring.
The trainer is cost-efficient, it is 6-8 cheaper (per hour) than a real helicopter and it does not require medical certification.
The COLIBRI Professional consists of:
- a helicopter cabin (Afalina, Heliwhale, Russoa) with flight controls - cyclic, collective and the pedals
- dashoard (a sensor sreeen)
- an instructr sead with duplicated controls
- a computer image generator with three 60" TV panels providing 120 degrees of FOV
The required space is 3x5 meters, can be installed by two persons in 1 day.
The COLIBRI Standard consists of:
- a pilot's seat with flight controls - cyclic, collective and the pedals
- a computer image generator with four 40" TV panels providing 160 degrees of FOV
The required space is 2x2 meters, can be installed by two persons in 1 day.
A simulator trainer for remote docking and undocking of a cargo spacecraft to an ISS module, to drill train the cosmonauts for manual control of the ship approaching the ISS.
The visualization system uses a detailed 3D model of the ISS. The 3D model is modified to reflect the modifications of the ISS itself. The simulator can be configured for an arbitrary list of modules, docked according to the rules. Thus any ISS configuration required by the training plan can be assembled.
