VAPS XT for Simulation

A rapid prototyping, design and deployment environment for creating graphical displays

Complex, dynamic digital information displays are an essential component of any new vehicle simulation or operator control station. Presagis VAPS XT for Simulation helps display developers accurately and efficiently prototype, develop, and integrate displays into simulation applications.
Overview

VAPS XT is a graphical human-machine interface (HMI) prototyping and development environment. It is used to create prototypes, simulations and certified displays for embedded systems. It helps developers and integrators simplify and speed up the tasks of developing and incorporating accurate real-time interactive displays and instrumentation within simulations. VAPS XT is integrated with the Presagis Modeling and Simulation framework, this takes the guesswork out of integrating displays with STAGE, FlightSIM, HeliSIM, and Vega Prime based applications.

VAPS XT allows users to define both object appearance and display logic in one easy graphical editor. Working together and using the automatic code generator, 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 development approach, VAPS XT applications can be easily deployed to Windows, Linux, Android, iOS and Real-Time embedded operating systems (RTOS).

Use VAPS XT to:

  • Develop virtual flight displays, including primary flight displays (PFD)
  • Create graphics for full cockpit displays
  • Create UAS/UAV ground station control panels
  • Create embedded trainer controls

VAPS XT easily connects with many mainstream simulation tools, including:

  • Presagis STAGE
  • Presagis FlightSIM and HeliSIM
  • Presagis Vega Prime
  • Mathworks Simulink

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.
