Presagis solutions delivered on four Boeing F-15C Eagle Simulators

MONTREAL, Canada, 28 Jan. 2010. Presagis, a provider of commercial off-the shelf (COTS) modeling, simulation, and embedded display graphics software, announced that its Lyra Sensors along with other Presagis tools were delivered as part of a Boeing-developed solution for the United States Air Force F-15C Eagle tactical fighter training program. In November 2009, Boeing fielded the four F-15C Visual Systems Trainers.

Presagis Lyra and Lyra Sensors COTS Visual Runtime software were integrated into the training system to provide realistic out-the-window, infrared sensor, and night vision goggle views for the fighter jet scenarios. The Presagis Technical Services team also supported the development of the simulator's Visual Database.

Depicting visual cues — exactly the way a pilot would see it if they were looking at the landscape through night vision goggles or from the cockpit — is critical to a positive training experience and success in the actual aircraft. With Presagis tools, Boeing can efficiently create the immersive and high-fidelity scenarios the Air Force needs to train their personnel.

Presagis Lyra, a multichannel visualization system delivering 60-hertz image generation out-of-the box, provides out-the-window scenes with complex weather and environmental special effects. Lyra Sensors provides simulated views from the aircraft's infrared sensors as well as accurately replicating the pilot's night vision goggles system. The solution operates on multiple hardware and operating system platforms, and utilizes two host simulation interfaces, CIGI and FlightICD, to maximize compatibility with existing simulators.

"Presagis is proud to work with the Boeing team to deliver a customized image generation solution for simulations reflecting the latest military innovations," said Nick Giannias, Vice President, Research & Technology and Product Management, Presagis. "Our Lyra and Lyra Sensors solutions helped to create complex scenarios that include lava fields, light point halos, and sensor signatures, resulting in a premium training environment for U.S. Air Force pilots."

Both Lyra and Lyra Sensors incorporate a broad range of functionality for a diverse range of interactive 3D visual applications, allowing for maximum flexibility in simulation development. To ensure rapid implementation, Lyra and Lyra Sensors include a sample database to validate installation and system performance, as well as utility tools such as a CIGI packet logger to record and play back scenarios.

The F-15C Eagle is a single-seat, all-weather tactical fighter designed for air-to-air combat. The aircraft's pulse-Doppler radar system can detect and track aircraft and small high-speed targets at distances beyond visual range down to close range, and at altitudes down to treetop level.
