RSi and Norxe provide another instance of a collaborative effort to offer materiel solutions to high-risk training enterprises. Whereas RSi’s business portfolio has an approximate 50%-50% split between the military and commercial aviation training sectors, similarly, Norxe’s projectors are in service at training sites in both markets and in other sectors.   

The RSI-Norxe partnership allows similar, baseline content and systems to be offered to multiple training communities. “This partnership enables both parties to deliver a ‘handshake solution,’ as projectors will never be better than the image generator and the IG provider, when working with partners on the display side, is the major way to meet resolution, numbers of channels and other specific, official requirements for the system,” Sondre Fauskanger, Senior Product Manager at Norxe, said.              

Training and simulation are core, number one markets for Norxe, the executive added. To meet this part of the company’s business model, Norxe’s projectors may deliver similar capabilities, including high image quality for flight training devices, multi-channel capacity for dome configurations, and others, for training audiences in different sectors. As significant, the company’s agile projector portfolio can also meet the defense market’s more rigorous materiel requirements for its unique missions sets, for instance, for higher refresh rates, the supply of a dedicated infrared channel and other capabilities.   

Alex Gibson, Marketing and Accounts Manager at RSi Visuals, provided another vital data point on meeting different sectors’ S&T requirements. In the case of commercial aviation pilot training, “it’s all about regulations.” And while RSi can help enable a full-flight simulator conform to a regulator’s level D flight training standards, it can also help the military customer exceed these standards and meet their additional mission-essential requirements.

While more demanding military training scenarios are one imperative driving more rigorous materiel requirements, there remains security compliance. 

Norxe hears the unique, clarion call from military departments, mainly in the West, for higher-level security capabilities – providing another differentiator between hardware and software content delivered for military training purposes and the commercial aviation market, for example. To point, the company has appointed a dedicated cyber security officer, whose oversight includes ensuring the company’s new software releases are compliant with the most current military standards for the expanding cyber domain. This should be no surprise, as Fauskanger recalled an early line of questions from a prospective military-industry team member may include: do you have a dedicated cyber security program; what is your certification level; and other queries.
