OIS AeroSpace at Farnborough International AirShow 2014, announces the availability of its next generation simulator development platform for cockpit simulators for fixed and rotary wing aircraft. This allows for integration and testing of real-time avionics hardware as part of the cockpit simulation environment.
This specifically permits the creation of new cockpit simulators. It also permits the testing and integration of diverse avionics from different suppliers that interact with the aircraft cockpit display system. It allows these units to be tested in a real-time simulation environment , and prior to its integration and installation in the aircraft, resulting in significant savings.
This platform is customizable for a variety of uses for Aviation majors and Tier 1 OEMs in order to rapidly develop, prototype and test a cockpit and other avionics environments that they envision for their present and future cockpit environments. This software platform is integrated with large multi-screen display environment of a simulator, and which allows for real-time integration of various hardware avionics modules that need to be tested. Real-time hardware-in-loop testing is a key benefit of using this cockpit simulator environment.

The availability of this platform in India is likely to provide opportunities to Aircraft majors, and their Tier 1 OEM suppliers for work packages to help satisfy their defence offset obligations in India. New products and solutions based on the platform can now be developed in India, and which in turn could be part of work packages for defence offset obligations.
“We are looking forward to our cooperation with OIS AeroSpace to advance our technology across the various sectors in India. OIS AeroSpace’s expertise and capabilities are central to our decision of entering into a cooperation for the burgeoning India market including for Defence Offsets .To maintain our primacy in the competitive simulation and avionics market, it is essential to innovate constantly. This platform specifically helps with the rapid development, integration and testing of new technologies in existing and new environments”, said Marko Beutler, CEO ADS (Avionic Design Service).
“OIS AeroSpace is pleased to announce the availability of the Fixed Wing and Helicopter Simulator Development platform. This enables aircraft majors and their OEM suppliers the ability to rapidly develop simulator and avionic testing applications for a realistic cockpit simulation environment in India. This platform provides us with an essential and attractive technology to support OEMs with their engineering and testing work packages for delivering on their Offset obligations”, said Sanjay Bhandari, Chairman and Managing Director of the OIS Group of companies.
