Field Trip

On February 28, the CUSP project team took a full-day trip to Montreal.  The first half of the day was spent at the Centre for Intelligent Machines lab at McGill University, where a variety of innovative design work is being carried out in a wide spectrum of fields and applications.  CUSP would like to thank the Centre for hosting us, as well as the many professors and graduate students who demonstrated their projects to us.

In the afternoon, CUSP was fortunate to visit Mechtronix, a flight simulator company based out of Montreal.  The team was given a guided tour of the factory floor, and even permitted to fly scenarios in two high-fidelity simulator platforms.

The project team is extremely grateful to Mechtronix for this opportunity to explore the industry side of flight simulation.
