Desktop Flight Simulator
A rapid prototyping system called Desktop Flight Simulator (DFS) for flight controller design has been developed. DFS runs on x86-based computer system on Windows operating system. This system uses Matlab/Simulink software. Visuals developed using OpenSceneGraph has been integrated to the system. DFS has been successfully used for testing of aircraft subsystem models, performance evaluation of an aircraft autopilot, airport runway profile studies etc.
