Build Your Own Flight Simulator on Prepar3D to Streamline Cockpit Design
Flight simulators can help optimize cockpit designs at early stages of development. They can be made using Ansys SCADE solutions for ARINC 661, rapidly prototyping user interface design with an automatic generation of the cockpit display system server. These results can then be integrated into Prepar3D v4 to evaluate the user interface ergonomic. The cockpit display is compliant with the ARINC 661standard that aims to normalize cockpit display systems (CDS) and their communications with user applications (UA). The layout and control logic to these systems are compliant to A661 standards using SCADE.
