The Chromakey Augmented Virtual Environment (ChrAVE) 3.0 System is a training system created to augment initial, refresher, and proficiency training in helicopter aviation using accurate simulation. Designed around advanced chromakey technologies, this system is deployable, scalable, and flexible, allowing for use in austere environments such as aboard ship or in forward deployed locations. The goal of system development was to prove that a collection of commercially available components could be integrated along with the Virtual Environment Helicopter (VEHELO) 2.0 software package in order to provide a realistic simulated environment in which pilots can practice skill sets that are critical to mission success. The focus of this thesis is the validation of ChrAVE 3.0 as an augmented trainer that can be adapted for use inside an actual aircraft cockpit. By placing the pilot in the most realistic simulation available ChrAVE 3.0 will enhance development of skills such as Terrain Appreciation, Crew Resource Management (CRM), and Situational Awareness (SA). Continuing past research, this thesis will analyze empirical data collected from training flights to further prove its value as an instructional tool. ChrAVE 3.0 is housed in three man-portable containers and can be set up within minutes with little or no prior experience.
