An Interesting VR-Link Use Case: Aerial Refueling

The other day I was talking to a customer about an interesting use case involving VR-Link. They are using VR-Link to network two simulations together for Aerial Refueling Exercises. While DIS and VR-Link have both been around for over 20 years, this was the first time that they were used for aerial refueling.  The aircraft involved are moving at high speeds and physically connect to each other during flight. It turns out, this is pretty tricky, which I’m sure most of you have already gathered. Using VR-Link, this customer modified how the messages were sent to make sure the simulation was fast enough to provide adequate training. If you are interested in seeing this in person, the Air National Guard will be highlighting this in their booth at I/ITSEC this year.
