Dynamic Motion Seat Deliverables
A True Q® motion seat system includes all elements required to provide complete motion cueing. The system includes the seat, the electronics, the cables, the cabling, the executable software, the technical support documents, and the warranty. Let’s look closer at each of those components.
The Seat – The motion seat emulates the actual aircraft seat and contains the motion cueing system.
The Electronics – The electronics calculate the motion to emulate the flight environment and to command the seat.
The Motion Seat Computer translates the acceleration signals from the flight model into commands for the seat.
The Electronics Chassis drives the seat motors per the computer inputs.
ACME delivers the electronics in a standard 19-inch, rack-mount cabinet. The cabinet is accessible from front and back and is lockable. The cabinet includes a power distribution unit that connects to facility power and supplies the electronics.
The Power and Signal Cables – The power and signal cables connect the seat to the electronics and the electronics to the trainer. You can specify the length of the cables to meet your program or facility needs. Contact ACME to discuss maximum cable lengths.
Executable Software/Firmware – The seat computer includes the executable motion software. The software algorithms translate the flight accelerations into motion cueing commands. The seat system also includes the simple, powerful application for monitoring and managing the seat system. The electronics include the pre-loaded firmware to drive the motors.
Technical Support Documents – ACME provides a data package that will enable the end user to maintain and support the product throughout the seat’s lifecycle. The data package includes appropriate mechanical and electrical schematics, maintenance, interface, and test manuals.
Warranty – ACME is committed to providing the highest-quality products and superior customer service. We are proud to provide a 12-month, return-to-factory warranty for the seat system.

You can buy spares at any time. ACME can deliver spares along with the motion seats. Or, you can have them delivered later to best meet your program needs. Concurrent spares can be the most cost effective. Concurrent spares provide the best support for the motion seats immediately. We provide suggested spares for many needs. You may need a list of spares for the initial support kit. Or, you may need a list of spares to support the seats over their entire life. We also provide special spares lists for sites with several seats. Sharing spares for co-located seats is also very cost effective.
ACME bases suggested spares on Line Replaceable Units (LRUs). LRUs provide the quickest repair – A quick swap and the trainer is immediately repaired. LRUs reduce the number of spares needed which simplifies Logistics support
