HMI Modeling Tools

Proven COTS software tools for any embedded display requirement. 

Challenges & Trends


In the past, it was common practice for systems integrators to hand code or use rudimentary modeling tools to develop embedded HMIs. Today, the rising costs of embedded development means many companies can no longer afford to create and maintain their own internal HMI tools. In addition, hiring the qualified engineers with graphics tool expertise and keeping pace with evolving standards and technologies can be challenging.



The Solution


Presagis develops, supports, and delivers cutting-edge HMI modeling tools for the prototyping and design of embedded display graphics. Today, Aerospace and Defense organizations globally use sophisticated products like VAPS XT to develop advanced displays for many kinds of applications:

  • Heads-up displays (HUD)
  • Primary flights displays (PFD)
  • Multi Function Displays (MFD)
  • Digital map overlays
  • UAS ground station controls
  • Embedded training systems
  • Tactical mission computers
  • Reconfigurable instrument clusters
  • EFB (electronic flight bag)
  • Airport navigation systems
  • Command and Control systems
  • GPS and terrain awareness
  • 2D and 3D maps and navigation applications
