Moog’s New Gen 3 Motion Base Serves up Energy-Efficient Simulation with a Modular Design
28 November 2019
EAST AURORA, N.Y. – At I/ITSEC 2019 in the Orlando, Fla., Orange County Convention Center from December 2 - 6, Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B) – a designer and manufacturer of high performance motion control products, solutions, and services – will show its Gen 3 six-degrees-of-freedom (6DOF) motion base, which offers training professionals an energy-efficient platform for heavy payloads with a new modular design and more simplified maintenance.
Moog has spent years working with builders of simulators for military and commercial aircraft and vehicles to improve algorithms, ensure fidelity and refine feel so the experience is judged by military personnel and commercial pilots to be as real as it gets. The Gen 3’s smaller motion cabinet translates into a reduced footprint within which the motion base sits. The new Moog Gen 3 motion base includes an optional feature set for training professionals to configure the platform to meet a variety of performance measures and budgets.
“Uptime is critical for training and simulation because trainees often have short windows within which to receive instruction and gain certifications,” says Tobe Ehmann, business development manager for Simulation at Moog. “We’re ensuring uptime is maximized with the Gen 3 by including improved diagnostics so owners and operators can quickly identify not only a problem but also the cause and location.”
Along with improved diagnostics, Moog has included guided troubleshooting for the Gen 3 that enables technicians to begin working on repairs as soon as they become aware of an issue. I/ITSEC attendees can speak with the engineering team behind this new design by visiting Moog Inc. in booth 1021.
