Desktop Simulation & Prototyping

Complex, dynamic digital information displays are an essential component of any new vehicle simulation or operator control station. Our Tools help developers accurately and efficiently prototype, develop, and integrate displays into simulation applications.

VAPS XT is a graphical human-machine interface (HMI) prototyping and development environment used to create certified displays for embedded systems. That reliability helps developers and integrators simplify and speed up the tasks of developing and incorporating accurate real-time interactive displays and instrumentation within simulations.

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.

This video shows an integrated flight simulation application developed using Vega Prime for the 3D out-the-window visuals, VAPS XT For Simulation for the 2D HUD overlay and the side control panels, and FlightSIM to provide the high-fidelity flight dynamics.
