Your role

This master thesis will be performed at the department for tactical environment simulation and visualization within flight simulators.
The flight simulators for Gripen are used for development, concept studies and advanced training. They are an important piece in the Gripen weapon system.

The flight simulators are used both internally at Saab for development of Gripen, but it is also used by our customers for training on flight missions.

Virtual Reality (VR) has become very big in these last years and the technology used is being more and more advanced. We think that VR can be used a complement within flight simulators to supply our users with a simulation setup that with a small measures yields a big perception of the simulated environment. We have performed several master theses within flying in VR regarding evaluations of different headsets, HMI solutions, eye tracking etc. However, there is still much to research in the area.

Your profil

You are welcome with suggestions within VR. As long as there is an interest, we will find a suitable project that will lead us on our mission to take the Gripen VR to the next level.

Expected result is a technical report in English, a software prototype, tests performed with a control group and a demonstration for a reference group within Saab.

We are looking for one or two engineering students that are in the last year of a technical education aimed at 3D development. We would very much like to see a genuine interest for visualization and/or game development. Experience with Unity or Unreal is highly merited.

You are more than welcome to attach your own projects in the application.

Observe that you can send us your application in either Swedish or English.

This master thesis required a Swedish citizenship.
