SimWorkbench™ is a design, implementation, and testing aid that speeds the development of flight applications. It gives engineers and software designers a toolkit containing tested solutions to many of the problems they are likely to encounter. SimWorkbench™ features a user-programmable shell for controlling and monitoring execution of flight programs; a simulated motion sensor generator; and a library of software units for defining reference frames, and effecting coordinate transformations.
The user interface to SimWorkbench™, referred to as the Simulation Shell, provides facilities to,
Each flight system is designed to satisfy particular requirements. The precise design chosen for implementation will depend on specific functional requirements, the type of air vehicle, the sort of position and motion sensing equipment used, and a host of other factors. However, all flight systems share many common elements. This is expected, as they must all solve the same fundamental problem; that of guiding and controlling an air vehicle moving above the Earth's surface.
The component library included with SimWorkbench™ is a collection of program units performing important functions that speed development by reducing problem complexity, especially for those software designers who do not possess a firm grasp of the physical theory underlying flight dynamics. Library units may be used in several ways. They may be:
The library includes components that:
SimWorkbench™ is a proprietary tool built and owned by PerfectLogic. It has been used on client projects to speed the development of flight-related applications and to provide a platform simulating and testing guidance and control software. PerfectLogic makes this product available to its clients. Presently, there are no plans to sell this product to a wider market. Feel free to contact us for additional information.
