MILITARY SIMULATION CENTRE / MAREK KOŹLAK, ALEKSANDER NAWRAT
Abstract: The article discusses the Military Simulation Centre (CSW) recently established to create advanced military simulators up to platoon level and to market both its own innovative accomplishments in the area of computer simulation and visualisation, as well as those of other research institutions that support the armaments market. The Centre is to become an advocate of Polish technological solutions in the field of advanced computer simulation and training devices for the military.
LAUNCH OF THE IMMERSIVE 3D VISUALIZATION LABORATORY / JACEK LEBIEDŹ, ADAM MAZIKOWSKI
Abstract: The paper presents the concept of Immersive 3D Visualization Laboratory, formed at the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics of the Gdańsk University of Technology under the Gdańsk University of Technology Modern Auditoriums project. The basic unit of this laboratory will be a cubic CAVE (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment) supplemented with a spherical walk simulator. This device will allow the user unlimited walking, and even running, in a freely created virtual world. If the virtual world becomes a battlefield or a burning building, this device will be able to serve as an infantry soldier simulator or fire-fighter simulator. The opening of the laboratory will take place in mid-2014.

BUILDING A SIMULATION SYSTEM FOR AMV ROSOMAK / ANTONI KURZEJA, MAREK KOŹLAK, JACEK WIELICKI
Abstract: The article presents subsequent stages in the process of designing a modern training system for AMV Rosomak crews. The presented SK-1 Pluton was developed by OBRUM engineers using the experience gained when operating an SK-1 simulator designed for a single crew and used at the Land Forces Training Centre in Poznań. The capabilities of the training system are discussed along with the outlook for further development of the design, integration of the system with a constructive simulator used by the Polish Armed Forces and implementation of subsequent versions of VBS software in the simulator.
APPLICATION OF SK-1 PLUTON SIMULATOR IN THE TRAINING OF AMV ROSOMAK CREWS. PART 1 / ANTONI KURZEJA, WOJCIECH RAKSZAWSKI, ZYGMUNT REUTER, JACEK WIELICKI, ROMAN WANTOCH-REKOWSKI
Abstract: The article discusses the SK-1 Pluton simulator dedicated to train AMV Rosomak crews and designed and manufactured at OBRUM. Design guidelines, with account taken of the requirements and needs of the military services responsible for training, are presented. Specifications forming the basis for developing the final simulator design, as well as the simulator structure comprising the combat (commander and gunner) and driver modules, are briefly described. The simulator software developed on VBS2, including software for conducting fire and observation and tracking of objectives for the driver module and the combat module, is also described.
APPLICATION OF SK-1 PLUTON SIMULATOR IN THE TRAINING OF AMV ROSOMAK CREWS. PART 2 / CZESŁAW DĄBROWSKI, MARCIN BIELEWICZ, ARTUR ZIELICHOWSKI, MAREK Ł. GRABANIA
Abstract: The article presents initial results obtained and assessments made during testing of SK-1 Pluton simulator at the Military Academy of Land Forces in Wrocław (WSOWL). The prospects for using the simulator in the training of officer candidates are discussed. The areas of application of the simulator in training troops of units equipped with AMV Rosomak are outlined. In the final part of the article reference is made to experience gained in the use of simulation systems in international training undertakings.
NEW FEATURES OF VIRTUAL SIMULATION IN VBS 3 / MACIEJ STOPNIAK, ROMAN WANTOCH-REKOWSKI
Abstract: The paper presents new properties of VBS, which have been added in VBS3. The principal new features are the extended properties of the graphics engine, extended range and method of simulation and network communication. The paper also presents examples of visualization using the new graphics engine.
INTEGRATION OF CDI INDICATORS WITH A FLIGHT SIMULATOR AT VIRTUAL FLYING LABORATORY / KRZYSZTOF CYRAN, OLEG ANTEMIJCZUK, DAGMARA SOKOŁOWSKA, ADAM ZAZULA
Abstract: The article presents design and implementation of CDI (Course Deviation Indicator) gauges conducted as part of the EGALITE project. The software developed served for integration of these gauges with flight simulators of FNTP II class, which are installed at Virtual Flying Laboratory of the Faculty of Automatic Control, Electronics and Computer Science, Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice. This work enabled the use of flight simulators in research on application of satellite navigation in LPV precision approach procedures. The aim of the use of the Virtual Flying Laboratory simulators in EU research projects is to reduce the time and financial resources that are necessary for aeronautic research. It also increases the safety of aeronautic flight research and development studie.
SIMULATOR OF A CAR FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES / GABRIEL KOST, PIOTR OCIEPKA, KRZYSZTOF HERBUŚ
Abstract. This paper presents the results of a project conducted by the authors, the purpose of which was to build a simulator for teaching disabled persons how to drive a car. This paper presents also the functional design requirements established for the project. The structure of the mechatronic system, on the basis of which the simulator was built, is presented. The details of each subsystem of the simulator and its capabilities and the method of its functioning are also described.
