Visual Database Modeler

The Visual Database Modeler maintains and modifies computer rendered visual models for display on the visual image generator installed on the C-5 WSTs. Each visual database is a realistic representation of the terrain and geospecific area, constructed by placing polygons, light points, various visual Library objects in a coordinate system. Required modifications or discrepancies are identified by any of the C-5 simulator sites and once confirmed by Test Group goes into working. The amendments are made with modeling tools developed by FSI-VSS (FlightSafety International – Visual Simulation Systems). The amended version of the database is then installed on one of Lackland’s simulators, tested and once approved is ready to be included in the next visual database release. This version of the visual release is distributed to all C-5 simulator sites where it is installed and thereby replaces the previous version.
