ZedaSoft, Inc. Awarded Portable Three Screen Desktop Simulator Contract from Lockheed Martin's Advanced Development Programs Group
(Fort Worth, Texas – 16 November, 2012) Fort Worth-based ZedaSoft, Inc. was awarded a contract to provide a three screen Reconfigurable Desktop Simulator (RDS3) F-16 system by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company (LM Aero) Advanced Development Programs (ADP) group. This additional capability is in support of the Automatic Collision Avoidance Technology (ACAT) Fighter Risk Reduction Program (FRRP) and is used as a simulator ground station.
The RDS3 leverages ZedaSoft's Reconfigurable Desktop System (RDS) simulator design, for a two-case, highly portable solution, to demonstrate collision avoidance technologies.
The three LCD screen upgrade to the RDS provides superior lookdown capability for a better fighter-like view of the earth and sky scene.
The portable system uses the MetaVR Virtual Reality Scene Generator software to render the visual scene content. MetaVR will provide a terrain database comprised of satellite terrain imagery for the entire continental United States at 1 meter resolution with higher resolution insets for select areas. MetaVR will also provide an authentic highresolution 3D model of the F-16 ACAT aircraft, built for real-time simulation.
This RDS3 was delivered with a F-16 Block 50 aircraft baseline. However, it is a perfect complement to ZedaSoft's many cockpit entity platforms as a role-player station addition to other full mission simulators.
ZedaSoft's new RDS provides a "build-as-your-needs-grow" approach, with a set of hardware building blocks that can be interchanged to simulate different aircraft types at an eighth of the cost of traditional defense simulators. Great design care has been taken to allow our customers to make use of many standard simulator components and cockpit specific hardware
"We believe that this integrated solution provides our long-time customers the best test platform and value to this very important technology development program." says GW Estep, president of ZedaSoft.
