Navy Selects Sony’s Sxrd 4k Projectors For State-Of-The-Art Visual Training Simulator


ORLANDO (I/ITSEC Booth #3527) – Sony announced today at the annual Interservice/Industry Training, Training, Simulation and Education (I/ITSEC) conference that its SXRD® 4K digital projectors have been selected for the Navy’s advanced Multipurpose Supporting Arms Trainer (MSAT) program at the Naval Air Strike and Air Warfare Center located in Fallon, Nev.

The Navy’s effort to build the immersive simulation trainer follows the recent successful installation of Sony SXRD 4K projectors at the Naval Amphibious Base, Coronado located in San Diego, Calif.

The display system will include three 4K projectors (model SRX-S105) that are capable of displaying images at more than four times the resolution (4096x2160) of today’s high-definition television sets (1920x1080). The projectors will be used as part of a complete simulation trainer, developed and installed by Video Display Corporation, a leader in the simulation display industry.

“We are very pleased with the Navy’s decision to expand the MSAT training program using Sony’s SXRD 4K projectors,” said Andre Floyd, Sony Electronics’ marketing manager for SXRD systems. “We are confident that the immersive visual experience provided to the trainees by the ultra high-resolution training program will help our men and women serving in the Navy to be among the best prepared in the service.”

The MSAT program was created to provide key personnel -- including Forward Air Controllers, Forward Observers, and Close Arms Support -- with simulated joint training exercises in all aspects of artillery, mortar and naval combat situations.

Floyd added that Sony’s SXRD 4K projectors are the only bright projection systems available on the market today that are capable of producing 8.8 million pixels of resolution. The projector’s high pixel density makes the system ideal for applications requiring the display of content heavy simulations.

The I/ITSEC conference taking place in Orlando, from December 1-4 promotes improved training, education and cooperation among the Armed Services, Industry, Academia and various government agencies.

The installation in Fallon, Nev., is expected to be completed by July 2009. More information about Sony’s SXRD projection systems is available online at
