HeliSIM

HeliSIM is the industry standard for creating high-fidelity, high-quality flight dynamics simulations for virtually any rotary-wing aircraft in the world – military, commercial, or unmanned.

Overview

Create. Set. Hover.

HeliSIM is the industry-leading high-end COTS for creating high-fidelity, high-quality flight dynamics simulations for virtually any rotary-wing aircraft in the world – military, commercial, or unmanned.

At the core of HeliSIM’s distinguished performance lies the real-time flexible blades and gearbox physics simulation.

HeliSIM performs this complex physics through highly optimized processing to simulate a large number of “blade elements” in real time and produce high-fidelity simulation.

This optimized Blade Element Rotary Model (BERM) computation technique has allowed HeliSIM to become the market leading high-fidelity COTS rotary wing simulation software, leaving the competitions’s “rigid disk” or other less advanced physics models, far behind when it comes to simulating the complex physics of an helicopter, especially in hovering mode.

From developing flight training devices through building avionics test beds for existing or future rotary wing platforms, HeliSIM offers developers high-fidelity real-time simulation, easy customization, and rapid integration into a given simulation framework.

HeliSIM lets simulation developers easily conceive and quickly deploy a complete aerodynamic model for the real-time simulation of virtually any rotary-wing aircraft – military, civilian, and unmanned.

With a highly-flexible and customizable user interface, HeliSIM lets you use forms to define all the parameters of the flight model, engine model, blade tilt, atmospheric model, and defined flight paths.

You can also specify system and sub-system behaviors, such as Automatic Flight Control systems, as well as environmental conditions, and ground interactions.

Maximize HeliSIM by easily integrating virtual and/or real hardware devices and user-development simulation models. Also, out-of-the-box connection through CIGI, HLA, DIS, local shared memory, or networked shared memory to any flight simulation framework permits unparalleled interoperability and integration.
