AgustaWestland delivers aircraft cockpit emulations on the iPad with GL Studio

MUNICH, 21 March 2012. AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, has developed a mobile application for aviation training using the GL Studio iDevices toolkit from DiSTI Corp., a provider of advanced graphical user interface (GUI) technology.

Beginning with the iPad, AgustaWestland is developing a range of mobile applications to improve the flexibility and effectiveness of training media within its courses. By leveraging this next generation of hardware and software technologies, AgustaWestland is able to provide more immersive and flexible training for students, while removing physical barriers to learning.

AgustaWestland has developed multimedia learning content on the iPad, consisting of both controllable courseware and complex emulations of aircraft systems, for a number of key customers. An initial proof of concept was developed for the Apache Tactical Situation Display (TSD), which provides a visually compelling, tactile, and interactive emulation of the main mission computer for the aircraft.

“We are constantly looking to improve the quality of the learning experience we provide to our customers,” says John Ponsonby, senior vice president of training at AgustaWestland. “I am particularly excited by our latest developments in mobile learning with DiSTI tools, which provides a step change in the way our students absorb knowledge.”

DiSTI’s GL Studio iDevice toolkit was used to develop these state‐of‐the‐art iPad applications. Interactive 3D models and graphical emulations created in GL Studio can be deployed on devices, such as the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Its embedded code generation ability is coupled with its high-fidelity visual display and security capabilities.
