Flight Training to get HD Treatment

The simulation is driven by dozens of networked PC-type computers made from readily available commercial components, such as Intel dual core processors and $400 graphics cards, installed in industrial quality cases with greater cooling capacity.

The end result is video imaging that is of 20-40 visual acuity, only a little less than perfect eyesight. Previous generations of simulators were no better than 20-80. Schaefer says the only thing preventing even better images is that existing projectors cannot yet generate 20-20 images at jet aircraft speeds. [/QUOTE]

In the works. But it will be small.
