FORT WORTH, Texas, 21 July 2016. ZedaSoft Inc., a simulation and visualization software company in Fort Worth, Texas, won a contract from AI Signal Research Inc. (ASRI) to deliver and install an integrated Boeing AH-64D Apachemilitary helicopter simulator at the U.S. Army’s Redstone Distributed Test Control Center (DTCC) at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, where it will support testing of related aviation and communication systems.
The Apache simulator runs on ZedaSoft’s CBA for Simulation software framework and ZedaSoft simulation hardware products, and takes advantage of avionics and electronics for myriad industry partners.
The pilot’s station is based on ZedaSoft’s Reconfigurable Cockpit System (RCS), which has been customized to a realistic AH-64D configuration and includes a Bihrle Applied Research high-fidelity flight model that matches the aircraft’s performance, a control loading system from Simulation and Control Technologies (SCT), high-fidelity cyclic and collective grips from Bugeye Technologies, discrete and analog signal conversion boards from United Electronic Industries (UEI), and representative touchscreen multifunction displays (MFDs). The SONOMARC communications suite from PLEXSYS Interface Products provides simulated radio communications and intercom functions.
The visual system is a 120-degree horizontal and 60-degree vertical out-the-window LED visual display with a five-channel, virtual-reality scene generator (VRSG) system provided by MetaVR. The copilot/gunner station is based on ZedaSoft’s Reconfigurable Desktop System (RDS) customized with realistic TEDAC grips provided by Bugeye Technologies. The system testing is controlled through ZedaSoft’s Experimenter/Operator Station (EOS).
ZedaSoft develops products for the simulation and visualization industry. Its customers include Lockheed Martin, Boeing, U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, and other defense, government, and commercial organizations. The main goal at ZedaSoft is to strike the balance between realistic simulation and cost-effective deployed solutions utilizing modern simulation architecture, officials say.
