Barco, leading manufacturer of large-format projectors, has unveiled its new 360-degree flight simulator, which uses 14 high-res projectors to create a completely immersive training experience for fighter pilots.

The company says that the realism the system offers is critical when preparing for real-world scenarios, and hopes that the technology will pave the way for a new generation of simulators in which pilots can work together to carry out missions instead of follow a set of computer programmed scenarios.
