It is noted that the Odin virtual reality helmet was developed by Russian engineers and uses its own Deus software platform.

The Odin helmet has a resolution of 4K, a viewing angle of 110 degrees and a laser tracking system Horus. The device weighs 340 grams. On the simulator with such a helmet, students and military personnel will be able to practice landing in combat zones. To simulate air resistance, the state of free fall, a backpack with a parachute and other parameters, special fasteners, a seat and fans installed on the sides are used. 

The press service of the company notes:

Odin’s built-in helmet tracking system monitors the speed of the pupil and specifically accelerates the change of image in the visual space so that the subject can train the reaction rate. In virtual reality mode, the participant in the training process works out the landing accuracy: he controls the lines of the parachute, controls the position of his body at the time of flight and the dome after it is opened. ”
