RPA Electronic Solutions Selects Digital Projection for LCAC Visual System Upgrade

ATLANTA, GA – (November 17, 2015) - RPA Electronic Solutions (RPA), as the visual teaming partner for LSI, Inc. (Jacksonville, FL) on TSC III, was awarded the Landing Craft, Air Cushion (LCAC) visual upgrade portion of the LCAC FMT contract.  RPA is responsible for all aspects of the visual system upgrade including projector replacement, for which RPA chose the Digital Projection International (DPI) dVision WQXGA LED solid state illumination projector.

Rick Pray, President of RPA, said, “The choice of Digital Projection was made because they, like other companies, had a projector that fitted the need, but they also went above and beyond in support of our needs before and after the sale.” Pray continued, “Digital Projection’s technical expertise and training assisted RPA in the design and test phase to ensure an efficient high fidelity display system.”

The LCAC FMT is an operations trainer for the Operator, Engineer, Navigator and Group Commander of the LCAC. It replicates the LCAC Control Cabin, and consists of a six degree of freedom motion system, 180 degree field of view collimated visual display, aural system, two instructor stations, computer equipment, and associated peripherals. The LCAC FMT provides training in the complex skills required for safe operation of the LCAC in both normal and casualty modes.

DPI will demonstrate its suite of solid-state projection solutions in booth #970 at I/ITSEC 2015 in Orlando, Florida, from November 30 – December 4, 2015.
