Sikorsky has opened a new “virtual reality” center for the CH-53K at engineering labs within its primary facility in Stratford, Conn. The center will incorporate 12 cameras, a head-mounted display, gloves, a gripping tool and software linked to three computers that make up the central point to control the system. Dr. Michael Torok, vice president and chief engineer for U.S. Marine Corps programs, notes that the center will allow “the team to find production and maintenance issues that typically only could be found during the initial build of the aircraft.”
