Military
  • Ability to create, modify or purchase a wide variety of commercial aircraft, with a high fidelity flight model.
  • DIS networking support.
  • Multiple seat support (for example, pilot and co-pilot configuration).
  • Comms support over DIS network (through CNRSim Pro integration).
  • Configurable sensor suite, including IR/EO camera support, A/A and A/G RADAR, SAR/ISAR.
  • Configurable weapons system.
Clients can use the FLEX-air SDK to create customized instrumentation, modify the default behavior of existing features or create new features from scratch include RADAR models, MFD pages, Weapon systems and more.

FLEX-air is built upon popular COTS desktop simulator software that supports:
  • High quality flight model.
  • Curved Earth Model (WGS-84) with Global Database.
  • Replay Functionality.
  • Instructor Station Integration.
  • Support for atmospheric to orbital flight transitions.
  • 2D and 3D cockpits.
  • High quality "out the window" display.
  • Multi-Channel display capable.
FLEX-air provides the toolset required to create custom pilot instrumentation and MFD layouts for any aircraft cockpit, via easy to use tools and data files. A small set of example layouts are provided with the toolset.
  • The look, size, location, layout and structure of the pages on the MFD can be specified for each aircraft and modified quickly for experimentation and rapid work flow.
  • Built into the system is a collection of standard pages which can be used as is or modified to suit. These pages include:
    • HUD repearter
    • Store Management System
    • Navigation
    • Test / Failure
    • Engine Management
  • Advanced function pages can be modified using the SDK and include:
    • Moving Map
    • Autopilot
    • RADAR (with support for both AESA and mechanical types)
    • Radar Warning Receiver
    • FLIR / EO
    • Counter Measures
FLEX-air is designed to provide large scale, low cost simulation solutions. Our DIS-compatible networking is and optimized custom solution that provides high speed, low latency connections for up to 30 aircraft per server.
  • Each server also acts as a DIS gateway allowing much larger numbers of simulated entities.
  • Using the internal networking system multiple crew stations per aircraft can be configured. This enables scenarios involving WSO's, Co-Pilots and more.
FLEX-air provides integrated voice communications using Calytrix Technologies' CNR-Sim (and CNR-Sim Pro for licensed customers). See http://www.calytrix.com/products/cnr/introduction/
FLEX-air provides a number of sensor options that can be configured through data or replaced completely with custom code using our SDK. Available sensors include:
  • FLIR
  • Electro-Optical view (supporting low light mode)
  • RADAR
    • Support for Air to Air and Air to Ground RADAR
    • User-configurable modes that can be used to simulate AESA or mechinical arrays
  • RADAR Warning Receiver
FLEX-air provides a standard Electronic Warfare Suite including:
  • RADAR Warning Receiver
  • Chaff (network aware)
  • Flares (network aware)
  • Radar Jamming
The FLEX-air toolset has the ability to create custom weapons through data modification and/or the SDK. Parameters for modification include:
  • Configurable warheads, propulsion and sensors
  • Sensor systems including:
    • IR
    • Semi-Active RADAR
    • Active RADAR
    • Laser Designation and Laser guided weapons
    • GPS guided weapons
  • LARs support for both A/A and A/G weapons
In addition, there are a wide variety of standard weapons available by default.
FLEX-air provides SAR / ISAR functionality using modern GPU rendering, which can be used for target tracking and ground mapping.
FLEX-air's UAV tools allow simulation of UAVs in multiple configurations, such as:
  • Stand alone mode, where all activity for the UAV is performed in the FLEX-AIR environment
  • Ride along mode, where simulation and / or control of the UAV is performed by an external federate with the FLEX-Air system used to control on-board sensors.
The UAV tools are supplied as an additional plug-in, separate to the core FLEX-air installation at an additional cost.
FLEX-air supplies a variety of 3D models, including:
  • SAM batteries and accompanying RADAR units (eg SA-2, SA-10, SA-15, SA-20)
  • Tanks (eg T-54, T-72, M1A1)
  • Aircraft (eg Typhoon, F-4e, F-16, MiG-29)
  • Generic buildings and bunkers
Additional models can be developed for customers - please contact us to discuss your requirements.
