Make sure they’re ready with motion simulation for critical operations

Easily integrate the D-BOX Motion-Cueing Systems into your simulation training architecture

BrochureDefenseD-BOXA state-of-the-art motion-cueing system, our technology seamlessly integrates with industry software and architectures, ensuring quick deployment and low maintenance. D-BOX systems are equally compatible with industry simulation software and serious games to create fully immersive simulated training experiences.

Enable operators to achieve maximum readiness. Develop their reflexes and muscle memory with an affordable COTS motion-cueing system that integrates seamlessly with the world’s best simulation applications.

D-BOX develops motion technology for training and simulation applications. Our motion-cueing systems are used anywhere people need to experience kinesthetic training for critical operations — army, air force and navy training and analysis.

Affordable and easy to integrate, D-BOX technology creates true-to-life, immersive motion effects when paired with high-fidelity simulation engines.

D-BOX offers a versatile plug-and-play solution to incorporate motion simulation into Virtual Battlespace scenarios. If you’re looking to increase immersion for drivers, equipment operators and pilots, D-BOX provides the kinesthetic cues to provide trainees with accurate feedback.

Quickly and affordably deploy simulations that develop critical psychomotor reflexes

Solid training is mission critical. People need to experience realistic scenarios to fine tune their psychomotor reflexes for critical operations. Given today’s budget constraints, training on real equipment in the field has become less accessible. How do you provide engaging and true-to-life critical operations experience replicating military equipment and platforms? You’re looking for affordable and easy-to-deploy simulation technology that integrates with commercial off the-shelf software and provides true-to-life simulations of critical operations. The vast majority of learners are multi-modal; they need kinesthetic cues combined with different types of information and sensory input to improve the success of their training.


 D-BOX Motion-Cueing Systems core benefits

Engaging

Optimal simulation training is engaging enough to remove psychological barriers to learning, creating psychomotor reflexes that respond to real-life situations. D-BOX immerses trainees by replicating the platform’s movement while using rich motion cueing to replicate vibrations, such as detonations, in the surrounding environment.

Affordable

Traditional training simulators are not necessarily optimal from a cost benefit perspective. D-BOX motion systems deliver state-of-the-art simulation at a fraction of the price. What’s more, our interoperability and ease of deployment further reduce the overall cost of deploying and managing a simulation training program

Easy to Deploy

Operational requirements and situations can quickly develop and change, requiring simulation systems that can be rapidly deployed anywhere, anytime. An interoperable COTS solution, D-BOX technology is a game changer, thanks to its ease of installation, low electrical power requirements, low shipment weight and reduced deployment time

Interoperable

Easily integrate D-BOX technology with your existing simulator’s architecture. We rely on open APIs and communication standards to ensure that our motion systems easily interoperate with partner and client software

Commercial Off-the-Shelf

As a COTS system, D-BOX offers a remarkably affordable and reliable solution. Our technology is supported and documented, and therefore easy to integrate and manage. Users can access all our expertise, including motion code, behavioral subtlety and vibrations.

Robust technology that simulates real-life movement and vibrations


D-BOX motion-cueing systems enable you to develop highly reliable training applications that respond and adapt to real-life situations, such as textures, velocity, engine vibrations and vehicle dynamics motion. By integrating our motion systems with your simulation engine, you gain a highly reliable simulator that responds to on-screen situations and user responses, using kinesthetic cues to build operators’ psychomotor reflexes.

Hardware

D-BOX motion-cueing hardware can be integrated into a seat, platform or other surface to simulate a range of textures and scalable axes of movement. Our motion systems are evolutive and scalable. We can help you select the optimal arrangement of actuators for your application, ensuring you deliver on budget and on time.

Software

For simulation, D-BOX interactive software uses motion algorithms to respond to user commands. Motion signals are sent to our motion controller, which decrypts the signal and sends the queue to our motion actuators. D-BOX motion specialists support your integration to replicate all vehicle movements from your simulation, including vehicle position, acceleration, suspension, detonations, engine vibrations and movement of articulated parts.

Ready to integrate in your architecture

Easily integrate D-BOX technology with your existing simulator’s architecture.

Architecture

D-BOX Technology integrations rely on open APIs and communication standards to ensure that our motion-cueing systems easily interoperate with partner and client software to transfer all movements and vibrations from the simulation engine to real life.
