F/A-18C 6DOF FLIGHT SIMULATOR READY TO WORK IN MIXED REALITY
FLIGHT COCKPITS F/A-C18 FIGHTER BASED ON 6DOF PS-TL-800 MOTION PLATFORM powered by DOGFIGHT BOSS
Dogflight Boss is an innovative company that focuses on the development of next-gen aviation simulators for mixed reality. Their specialized simulators are designed to provide a unique and immersive experience for aviation enthusiasts and professionals alike.
Dogfight Boss uses the latest technology to create accurate and realistic simulations of aircraft and flight environments. The products are tailored to a wide range of users, from individual enthusiasts to professional pilots and flight training programs.
The main technical assumptions of the F/A-C18 fighter simulators were: small size and lightweight body, ease of transport, super quite operation and ready to work with Varjo Mixed Reality headset . Flight cockpit simulator is based on 6DOF motion platform PS-6TL-800 with payload up to 800 kg, which is enough to carry the cockpit with equipment and a pilot.
Dogfight Boss flight simulators work in Mixed Reality environment. The fully wired cockpit, for DCS, was tested with Varjo goggles. What is more the platform manager software (ForceSeatPM) that allows users to control their motion system has a lot of additional functionalities, one of them is VR Headway that pilots can freely enjoy simulation without symptoms of VR sickness.

The PS-6TL-800 device is a type of Stewart platform with gross moving load up to 800 kg. It is a type of six-degree-of-freedom parallel manipulator that allows execution of three translational movements and three rotational movements about the vertical, longitudinal and lateral axis. The 6DoF motion platform is mainly intended for professional applications in research and biomedical field, flight and driving simulation or industry.
