The Czech company Primoco UAV SE has introduced a revolutionary virtual reality training module into its training program allowing it to significantly increase the efficiency, success and safety of its pilot training for unmanned aerial vehicles.

The module uses virtual reality technology by viewing images with 3D glasses to provide training in complete aircraft control in a fully artificial environment. The technology chosen enables the customers of Primoco UAV SE to train their pilots as though they were in their home airport or other deployment locations with the possibility of simulating various environmental conditions, ranging from daytime to night, to simulating various weather phenomena and operating in complex air traffic environments.  A significant benefit is also the possibility of flight analysis with the display of flight progress, both for a flight made fully in the virtual reality environment and for a real flight replayed in the virtual reality environment.

The supplier of the training solution is the Czech company VR Group a.s., which is one of the leading European simulation companies with many years of experience in delivering training centres for military and security entities in the Czech Republic and abroad. Ladislav Semetkovský, CEO of Primoco UAV adds:

“The opportunity to take advantage of VR Group’s capabilities and experience behind innovative projects like our  tactical simulation centre is a tremendous benefit to us. Thanks to our agreement, we can offer our customers the highest possible quality of training while significantly increasing the safety and flexibility of teaching. The entire solution is now available to our customers at unbeatable costs.”

 Martin Klicnar, Commercial Director of VR Group, a.s., stressed the importance of co-operation:

“Co-operation with Primoco UAV SE, which is a representative of Czech industry, is very important for us and inspirational. It has great potential in the development and implementation of systems not only in the area mentioned of  training for handling autonomous vehicles but also in complex national solutions for training of command and management in army operations or crisis management where autonomous vehicles can be used and will increase their presence in the future.
