HeliSIM

Rotary-wing simulation developers create flight models for a wide range of military, civilian, and unmanned aircraft. HeliSIM 16 provides the flexibility and ease of integration to build comprehensive helicopter flight models, faster. And it is ideal for safety critical simulation applications.

From building and evaluating existing and future rotary wing platforms, simulators, training equipment, and cockpits to developing part-task trainers, Presagis HeliSIM is the industry standard solution for creating high-fidelity rotary-wing flight dynamic simulation.

Use HeliSIM to:

  • Conceive and deploy a complete aerodynamic model for the real-time simulation of any rotary-wing aircraft without writing a single line of code
  • Test both aircraft design and aircraft performance under controlled, simulated conditions
  • Specify subsystems behavior, including flight management systems, autopilot, and flight controls
  • Easily integrate virtual and/or real hardware devices and user-development simulation modules
  • Quickly and easily tailor helicopter simulation by entering aerodynamics and environmental parameters into windows and dialog boxes rather than writing software routines to perform the simulation

Key Features


What’s New

Tail Rotor System has been extended with more modeling capabilities.

To accurately simulate the autorotation phase during flight, the Torque of the tail rotor is now transmitted to the engine.

To simulate a full rotor blade jam, a Total Failure Malfunction is now available for the tail rotor system.

For flight model accuracy the tail rotor azimuth angle is now configurable.

Rotor brake model is no included with the gearbox system.

 

Brand new functionalities for flight navigations and guidance are now available with the Flight Management System (FMS).

For an increase navigation accuracy, more definitions per waypoints have been added.

Altitude capture modes like geodetic, barometric, standard and radar are now included.

Speed Control modes like Indicated Air Speed (IAS), Ground Speed (GS) and True Air Speed (TAS) are also offered.

Navigation capability has been extended up to 150 waypoints for a better support of UAVs.

Pitch, Roll, Yaw and Speed can now be controlled individually to simulate a modular coupling per axis.

 

Brand new functionalities for the Auto Flight Control System (AFCS) are now available.

Characterization of the AFCS limits are now directly exposed at the UI level to provide finer controls on the simulation  model, which removed the necessity to create user plug-ins.

Altitude capture modes like geodetic, barometric, standard and radar are now included.

Speed Control modes like Indicated Air Speed (IAS), Ground Speed (GS) and True Air Speed (TAS) are also offered.

New AFCS modes Rate Limit and Course track with hovering maneuvers and roll control for forward speed flight are included by default.

Pitch, Roll, Yaw and Speed can now be controlled individually to simulate a modular coupling per axis.

Every AFCS References can be modified during runtime by the end user. Settings like Roll and Pitch Attitudes, Altitude, Vertical Speed, Longitudinal Speed, and Heading to name a few, can benefit from this enhancement.

 

Other enhancements :

Simplified integration for hardware devices accompanied by a sample Control Loader

Simplified definitions and real-time controls of additional internal and external loads.

Aircraft model testing through improvements made to the Dynamic Test Integrity tools.

As a mandatory requirement for flight trainers, the Environment Wind Systems turbulence can be modified during runtime.

 

Comprehensive Toolset


Aerodynamics modeling capabilities
