From Helicopter to Exhibition Hall: Hoist Training in Virtual Reality

From Helicopter to Exhibition Hall: Hoist Training in Virtual Reality

Bluedrop’s Hoist Mission Training System (HMTS) is a fully immersive virtual reality device that is used to train search and rescue personnel for various hoisting operations. The full-scale HMTS can simulate high cable tensions that mimic those usually applied when hoisting people or objects onto a helicopter. However, as an industrial training tool, a full-scale HMTS can weigh up to 8000 lbs. and is not designed for portable use. Seeing a need for a more portable trainer to demonstrate at tradeshows and to deploy at forward operations bases, Bluedrop wanted to design a system that could fit on a double (4’ x 8’) pallet and be easily and quickly assembled. Bluedrop asked the Enginuity team to scale down the original design to allow for rapid installation and tear-down. Learn more about this process.

How We’re Helping Shivani’s Kitchen Increase Production | Process Improvement

When Shivani Dhamija successfully pivoted and expanded her business in 2020, it was harder to keep up with the demand for their products more than ever. After all, they not only successfully released their product line to retail stores all over Canada, but they were also able to begin expansion to the United States. They were then looking to increase their production without significantly increasing costs – and so they asked for Enginuity’s help.

Designing a Radio Frequency Processing Unit with 98% energy efficiency for the VASIMR thruster

Designing a Radio Frequency Processing Unit with 98% energy efficiency for the VASIMR thruster

Aethera Technologies sought out the help of Enginuity’s Mechanical Engineering and Design team in order to assist with the design one of the key components of Ad Astra Rocket Company‘s electric rocket system (VASIMR), the Ion Cyclotron Heater RF Processing Unit. We were able to come up with a highly optimized design for this Power Processing Unit (PPU) that met the tight restrictions required for space propulsion – at 98% energy efficiency.

Greenlight Analytical + Enginuity

Greenlight Analytical + Enginuity

James Wylde from Greenlight Analytical has a background in detection for security applications and has always been passionate about accurate practices to ensure safety compliance. His prototyping idea stemmed from working with the Frito Lay chip company to find out what chips actually smell or taste like (consistently across various manufacturing facilities) and how the chemicals in the baking process affect these things.
