With this system, a training jump only costs 4-5 US$ (against 60$ for a real jump), a representative of Havelsan told Army Recognition.

In addition to the simulation structure in itself, the parachute simulator consists of an Instructor Operator Station (IOS), a Virtual Display System, an Environmental Sound and Communication System, an Image Generator and a Debriefing System.

The IOS console is used for scenario management and manage running training (view, change, situations, inject malfunction, etc.). The IOS also allows after action review. It consists of Console Hardware, Console Software, and Sound and Communication System.

The Oculus display system of parachute simulator is a Helmet Mounted Display which works with integrated sensors to simultaneously change the field of view area of parachute jumper.

The Environmental Sound system is used to enhance the reality of the simulation. Level, frequency and direction of sounds are simulated. For Trainee-Instructor and Trainee-Trainee communication, an internal communication subsystem is available. Trainees can communicate with each others and with instructors.

The Image Generator simulates weather conditions (sunny, rainy, snowy, windy, foggy, etc.) and times-of-day. It is running on COTS hardware and is designed for modifications upon customer request.
