VAPS XT provides a rapid prototyping, design, and deployment environment for the creation of 2D and 3D photorealistic graphical displays, including instrumentation and equipment models, specifically for real time 3D simulation and training applications. VAPS XT dramatically reduces time to market and improves both the visual quality and performance of any HMI application and because it integrates seamlessly with other Presagis simulation and visualization COTS software products, users can leverage the power of VAPS XT in combination with the full spectrum of modeling and simulation software.
With its new user-extensible core architecture and integrated logic capabilities, VAPS XT is the industry-leading tool for the development of simulated displays, cockpits, dashboards, and user interfaces. The open and extensible architecture in VAPS XT offers simulation developers an unparalleled level of control and flexibility in the development of simulation panels and overlays.
VAPS XT also features fully integrated UML-based logic design that allows both programmers and non-programmers to either visually create complex menu-based applications or assign complex behavior to graphical objects without having to write code or purchase additional software.
VAPS XT dramatically reduces time to market and improves both the visual quality and performance of any HMI application. And, because it integrates seamlessly with other Presagis simulation and visualization COTS software products, users can leverage the power of VAPS XT in combination with the full spectrum of modeling and simulation software. VAPS XT is already being used as a key prototyping and simulation tool by leading systems integrators, including Rockwell Collins, Boeing, and AgustaWestland.
Using VAPS XT, you can:
VAPS XT is the only HMI tool available that easily connects to mainstream simulation tools, including
Presagis enhances its support for ARINC 661 with new out-of-the-box widgets and infrastructure enhancements specific to ARINC 661 standards:
Release 4.0.1 also incorporates a wide range of design, usability, and performance improvements in order to help users simplify and streamline their HMI development:
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.
