The aerial refueling simulator demonstrates, and trains, various dynamic aspects of a refueling boom system, such as aerodynamics, control forces and stereo characteristics of the camera system. Aerial refueling is a demanding manual task for both the pilot in the receiving aircraft and the refueling boom operator. Task performance of the boom operators depends heavily on the handling qualities of the different, closed-loop, dynamic systems. The simulator accurately models the visual feedback and manual control of the refueling boom and receiving aircraft to the operator, including force feel joysticks and a 3D enhanced-stereo visualisation.
