    Mixed Reality Headset

    Representing the state-of-the-art technology used in next-generation training, the XTAL 3 Mixed Reality headset is developed to meet the high requirements of professional pilots. Besides the common attributes of the XTAL 3 Virtual Reality headset, it has an embedded mixed reality module. MR technology has the potential to revolutionize pilot training by providing a highly immersive and interactive learning experience that can improve safety, reduce costs, and enhance the effectiveness of training programs.

    The Most Realistic & Immersive Environment

    Crystal Clear
    8K Resolution

    Full RGB 4K resolution per eye and patented custom-made non-fresnel VR lenses create realistic simulations with undistorted image across the entire wide field of view.

    Vrgineers development team designed advanced optical correction algorithms, which can correct optical flaws such as chromatic aberration or barrel distortion.

    Field of View

    The natural pilot movement patterns are supported by the widest field of view, up to 180° horizontal and 120° vertical degrees. Thanks to the combination with the highest fidelity, pilots train in 1:1 immersive true-to-life simulation. Avoiding unrealistic simulation reduces negative training significantly.

    Customized Solution

    The XTAL technology can be modified hardware-, firmware-, and software-wise to fit specific use cases perfectly. Vrgineers specializes in advanced training technologies using virtual and mixed reality, including building flight simulators, and has experience with XTAL integration into the pilot helmet. Additional sensors or specific chips can extend the technology while keeping high-security standards.

    „This is the most immersive VR headset I have ever used – nothing else comes even close. In case you’re wondering, both headsets felt comfortable to wear.“

    One of the biggest VR media platform

    Maximizing Muscle Memory Training

    Two video passthrough cameras embedded into the headset combined with a fully functional cockpit replica create an immersive environment, allowing pilots to operate the aircraft naturally, essential for improving muscle memory and exercising motor and coordination skills in real time.

    Integrated Eye Tracking Systems

    Eye-tracking technology tracks and gathers the pilot’s gaze in real-time. The instructors can use the data for debriefing and behavioral analyses visualized via heatmaps after the session. The instructors and pilots benefit from identifying problems with scanning patterns, increasing their awareness and efficiency in standard procedures.
