Vestergaard presented the DTS dashboard and the new de-icing training simulator
26 October 2015
Inter Airport 2015 Round-up - Vestergaard presented two new developments that will both soon be available to customers: the DTS dashboard and the new de-icing training simulator. The DTS (Data Transmission System) has been offered by Vestergaard for 25 years, tracking data related to deicing operations such as time, aircraft, location, fluid consumption, fluid temperatures, weather, operator, refractive index values, and truck performance. The new Vestergaard DTS Dashboard benefits the system users by giving them an easier overview of all the data collected and making the data available in various graphs and tables. The graphical overview of data in the DTS Dashboard provides live views of key performance indicators so that users can quickly check on the figures that they need to monitor without having to ask for reports and details. The Elephant® Beta de-icing simulator is a state-of-the-art PC-based training tool that enables operators as well as trainees to simulate most aspects of aircraft de-icing in a lifelike environment. The new and improved software for the Vestergaard simulator now gives a real time view of what an operation would look like and the water simulation looks 100% authentic giving the trainee a perfect feel of what de-icing in an Elephant® Beta will be like. In 2016 an option will be made available to add Ocolus Rift virtual reality (VR) glasses to the simulator.
