VAPS XT is a full-featured and advanced software tool for the rapid development of dynamic, interactive graphical interfaces for safety and mission-critical avionics and embedded displays. VAPS XT offers unparalleled control and flexibility in the design of dynamic, interactive, real time human machine interfaces (HMIs).
VAPS XT is ideal for the design of all types of embedded display graphics ranging from digital and analog instrumentation to next-generation menu-based displays. With its open and extensible object-oriented architecture, VAPS XT offers unparalleled control and flexibility in the design of dynamic, interactive, real-time human-machine-interfaces (HMIs). The product has been created by HMI tool experts with years of industry expertise and has been developed through close consultation with tier-1 embedded manufacturers.
Used worldwide, VAPS XT is the only embedded graphics tool that allows users to define both object appearance and display logic in one easy graphical editor. Working together and using the automatic code generator CODE nGEN – developers and Human Factors Experts can define the look and feel of an object or group of objects, assign behavior, and subsequently generate a stand-alone executable of their applications. Through a flexible porting approach, VAPS XT applications can be easily deployed to virtually any embedded target with excellent performance.
VAPS XT is the ideal software solution for the following applications:
Leverage the combined performance and reliability of VAPS XT and SeaWind in developing embedded graphics.
Develop embedded graphics for airborne display systems using VAPS XT.
Develop embedded graphics for infotainment and dashboard displays.
View stand alone VAPS XT demonstrations generated automatically by the tool.
Hardware and Software compatibility for VAPS XT and VAPS XT-178.
Create virtual instrumentation panels for simulators and training systems.

In this next generation release, Presagis enhances its support for ARINC 661 with more built-in widgets and infrastructure elements specific to ARINC 661 standards, in order to provide a complete ARINC 661 Cockpit Display System (CDS) Development Solution. New features include:
Release 4.0 also incorporates many general usability enhancements to the development environment in order to improve user workflow and productivity. Enhancements and features include:
The VAPS XT 3.2.1 patch adds support for Windows 7 in 32-bit compatibility mode.
VAPS XT and SeaWind now come pre-integrated on standard embedded platform configurations. Both VAPS XT and SeaWind have been tuned and optimized to ensure strong interoperability between the products.
The VAPS XT code generator CODE nGEN has been updated and improved to meet stringent coding standards, applying over 300 rules from MISRA C++, HIC++, Effective C++, JSF++, and internal Presagis coding standards.
A new demonstration DVD is now included with VAPS XT containing completed applications including the VAPS XT project files.
Integration with the SoftMap digital map software for the creation of applications with navigation maps directly in VAPS XT. SoftMap® is a product of General Dynamics, UK, used in generating platform independent software solutions for the display of multi-layered digital map, navigation, and terrain displays, as well as full tactical situation awareness systems. VAPS XT uses a new Digital Map object to manage placement of the digital map within an application. The Digital Map object is a container object which can contain Map, Intervisibility, Height-above-terrain (HAT), grid layers, two new Line Of Sight (LoS) layers, and VAPS XT overlays. An evaluation version of SoftMap is now provided with all versions of VAPS XT. To request a license for the SoftMap product, please contact email@example.com.
