ZedaSoft to provide Apache simulator
ZedaSoft has received a contract to provide ZedaSoft simulation hardware products and a Boeing AH-64 Apache attack helicopter simulator running its CBA for Simulation software framework, the company announced on 20 June.
The Apache simulator will be used to support testing activities of related communication and aviation systems. The systems will be installed at the US Army’s Redstone Distributed Test Control Center (DTCC), Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.
The pilot’s station is based on ZedaSoft’s Reconfigurable Cockpit System (RCS), while the co-pilot/gunner station is based on ZedaSoft’s Reconfigurable Desktop System (RDS). ZedaSoft’s Experimenter Operator Station (EOS) controls the system testing.
The RCS, customised to an AH-64D realistic configuration, includes touch-screen multi-function displays, MetaVR’s five channel image generator, Simulation and Control Technologies’ control loading system, Bihrle Applied Research high fidelity flight mode and a 120 degree horizontal and 60 degree vertical out-the-window visual display.
