Moog Driving Simulator Heightens Reality Of Virtual Test Laps For Ferrari Drivers

EAST AURORA, N.Y., June 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B) announced today that the Company has delivered a new testing simulator to Scuderia Ferrari in the Gestione Sportiva at Maranello, Italy. The new Ferrari F1 dynamic driving simulator was two years in development and allows Ferrari test-drivers a heightened sense of driving reality and highly responsive and immediate feedback.  

Ferrari selected Moog to provide an integrated, flexible motion control and testing system designed to meet specific and highly demanding requirements. Marco Fainello, Head of the Car Performance Department for Scuderia Ferrari, stated, "The dynamic driving simulator completely meets our specifications and expectations for a system that can test car designs as well as train drivers. Working closely with Moog during the two years of development on this system has helped us realize the maximum benefit of high performance simulated motion control." The system features a customized motion control solution with combined motion mechanism, control loading system, complete software package, cockpit and dedicated operator workstation.

The driving simulator simulates real race track conditions and is used to test car features that affect performance. The high fidelity of the simulator allows the driver to feel differences produced by modifications to a part or component of the car without the high acceleration of an actual test drive.  "The driving simulator is being used to test current and future car designs and train new drivers on multiple F1 circuits," added Fainello.

Pim van den Dijssel, business manager Moog in Europe added, "We worked closely with Ferrari's engineering team during the development of the driving simulator in our facility and we are delighted to hear positive feedback from Ferrari's drivers."

Moog Inc. is a worldwide designer, manufacturer, and integrator of precision control components and systems. Moog's high-performance systems control military and commercial aircraft, satellites and space vehicles, launch vehicles, missiles, automated industrial machinery, wind turbines, marine and medical equipment.
