Ternion’s exhibit at I/ITSEC 2009 focused on the new features of FLAMES Version 8.1 and demonstrated multiple Live Virtual Constructive applications of FLAMES, including the U.S. Air Force’s Command and Control Weapon System Part Task Trainer (C2WSPTT).
Highlights from the show:
UAV Video feed
Simulated UAV video can be generated using light-weight, easy to use applications that are fully integrated and correlated with an executing scenario. Like other FLAMES-based applications, no runtime fees are required.
Live Virtual Constructive (LVC)
A command and control simulation was used to illustrate the LVC capabilities of FLAMES. While FLAMES supports DIS and HLA, this particular demo makes use of the FLAMES client/server modules.
Commercial Airport and Air Traffic Control
FLAMES is ideal for use in commercial, as well as defense applications. A new demo showed how FLAMES can simulate an air traffic controller’s management of a commercial airport.
U.S. Air Force Command and Control Weapon System Part Task Trainer (C2WSPTT)
BK Stover, C2WSPTT Contractor Project Manager, joined Ternion at I/ITSEC to demonstrate the FLAMES-based C2WSPTT, which is used to train US Air Force Air and Space Operation Center (AOC) warfighters.
Ternion previewed new features in FLAMES 8.1, including scenario-editing windows that completely eliminate the need to know model details or edit script in order to modify scenarios. With 8.1, FLAMES opens scenario editing to a whole new class of end users with little or no previous simulation experience, while remaining flexible and robust for even the most technical software developers. Free 8.1 FLAMES runtime licenses and installation CDs were distributed at the show.
The Breakfast with Ternion Corporation was held on Tuesday morning during I/ITSEC 2009.
