Interoperable management of aeronautical generic executive software (IMAGE)

Objective

IMAGE aims at research and technical development activities to implementing a generic and universal environment for numerical and interactive simulations, to the benefit of aeronautical industry. Flight simulators are the most visible targets of the proposal. For more than thirty years, simulation has been successfully used in aeronautics and has strongly contributed to technological progress. Well known applications deal with computational fluid and structure dynamics, engine combustion chambers, flight controls systems, full flight simulators (integration and training), air traffic control simulators. Yet a difference in the applications seems to appear based on the principle of real time simulations (simulators) and numerical simulations (simulations). IMAGE research will focus on technological development leading to a real size validation of a generic and universal prototyped environment for Flight Simulators coupled and interlinked with Air Traffic Control simulators and Computer Based Training systems. The economical goal of IMAGE is to achieve a reduction by an order of magnitude of 10 on the present flight simulators cost The proposal gathers 8 Partners having know how in the field of simulators, the proposal is endorsed by the European large aircraft manufacturer which will participate in the management meetings, be aware of proposal deliverables and ...
