Distributed Engineer in Loop Simulator Facility for LCA

Distributed Engineer in Loop Simulator Facility for LCA





The Distributed Engineer-in-the-Loop Simulator (DELS) is being used extensively by National Control Law (CLAW) team for the development and evaluation of the LCA Control Laws for air force and navy variants, Aircraft Pilot Crew and Modelling and Identification Group of FMCD.  All the test points for flight data gathering for PID studies are simulated initially by actually flying or through computer generated inputs. The facility was also used for defining parameter excursion boundaries useful for safe flight monitoring during PID maneuver execution. The COTS dedicated PCs are used for flight model, instructor station, real-time plotting and re-configurable button box functions. These PCs are connected through Giga Bit Ethernet Switch.
