Mission and objective
The multi-purpose Desdemona simulator definitely pushes the limits of motion simulation. Desdemona is a flight and driving simulator, disorientation trainer and advanced research lab, all in one.This simulator - unique to the world - can be used for both research and training of complex situations that may occur during (military) flight, driving or even sailing.Desdemona is designed for:* Spatial disorientation training (basic course, advanced courses, refreshers)* Advanced military flight simulation, including highly complex jet fighter motion (deep stall, inverted deep stall), helicopter low altitude maneuvers (hovering in difficult and dangerous environments, such as brown-out landings), and upset recovery training for transport aircraft pilots* Research on human motion perception and the development of the proper motion cueing (also for the use and design of other simulators)
