Electrical Design and Integration
Our engineering staff provides a complete
cockpit system design. Our simulation cockpits are fully wired
and ready for integration with host computational systems.
- Cockpits can include fully integrated power systems to support
the various simulation panels, gauges, displays, and avionics
integrated within the cockpit.
- Cockpits are provided with or without fully integrated I/O
systems, video distribution, and Aircraft Original Equipment
such as mission computers, displays, etc.
- We can also design, develop, and integrate any or all simulation
panels and display systems required within a given cockpit.
We provide multiple cockpit construction possibilities, depending
on customer and trainer needs:
- Fiberglass Cockpits
- Faro-Arm scan taken from the design basis aircraft to
create a 3D CAD model
- Interior and Exterior structures replicated
- Salvaged Aircraft Cockpits
- Re-worked for trainer use
- Configuration updated as needed (e.g. KC-130F converted
AH-1S converted to AH-1W)
Major crew interface controls such as throttle
assemblies, control yokes, sticks, rudder pedals are typically
implemented using original aircraft components. These are integrated
into an active control loading system that accurately mimics the
feel of the representative aircraft. This produces a simulation
cockpit that accurately recreates all of the forces, cues, and
displacements that aircrew would experience in the actual aircraft
over the entire flight regime.
The majority of the fabrication and assembly
of cockpit parts is done on-site to ensure quality, minimize risks,
control cost, and to meet schedule. The mechanical and electrical
technicians in our fabrication facilities work directly with our
engineering staff during cockpit fabrication and assembly phases,
thus minimizing problem resolution time and maximizing efficiency.
