  • Instructor operating console with multiple displays for trainee monitoring
  • Intercom Unit
  • Computer systems rack
  • Power conditioning equipment
  • Motion platform control unit

Driver Station:

  • Driver compartment mock-up
  • OTW display system for view through main periscope
  • Adjustable driver seat
  • All operational driver controls
  • Indicators, instruments and gauges
  • Intercom Unit

Motion Platform:

  • 6 DoF electric motion platform
  • Provides realistic motion feel during driving through rotation and translation motion controls


  • 30 KVA, 3 Phase, 220 V Ph-N, 50Hz diesel generator set

The following main software components of the Zen T-90 DS work together to provide a reliable training environment for driver trainees:

The Instructor Station software provides for all instructor functions through

  • An intuitive, easy to use GUI
  • Display of driver compartment control status
  • Session control
    • Terrain/exercise selection
    • Insertion/removal of faults
  • After Action Review
  • Trainee records, performance evaluation and report generation
  • System health check

The Visual System software generates realistic visuals using

  • 3D terrains including plains, desert etc
  • 3D modelled terrain objects and model library
  • Environmental controls: ambient light as per time of day
  • Realistic smoke and dust generation

The Input/Output System software takes the trainee into the loop by:

  • Sensing all controls operations
  • Providing all system interlocks
  • Implementing realistic mathematical models for various automotive elements of the tank
  • Generating output signals for all indicators, meters and gauges
  • Generating motion cues

The Audio System software generates realistic aural inputs that the driver hears while in the driver compartment.

The simulator is designed for quick integration with the T-90 Gunnery Simulator or the T-90 Crew Gunnery Simulator. This allows for integrated training of the tank crew in combat situations.

The modular nature of all components of the Zen T-90 DS allows immense flexibility and we offer customized simulators for all variants of driving simulators for this series of armoured vehicles as well as for user specified vehicles.

The simulator is backed by more than 15 years of experience in development of training simulators to meet operator-training needs for a wide range of vehicular equipment. The simulator is characterized by emphasis on essential training elements.

Zen design, product engineering and after sales service assures users of a high MTBF and a low MTTR, in order that high simulator availability is ensured.
