Officials at the Enzian Systems Division of Future Technologies Inc. in Orlando, Fla., needed a computer to run the U.S. Army OH-58D Kiowa Warrior helicopter trainer.

So they chose the PowerMAXION running on the PowerMAX real-time operating system from Concurrent Computer Corp. in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The systems will be used for the Kiowa Warrior Crew Station Mission Equipment Trainer, which Future Technologies is producing for the Army`s Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation Command.

"Working with Concurrent to develop the prototype in the research and development phase of the project was an excellent experience," says Dave Sjuggerud, program manager at Future Technologies`s Enzian Systems Division. "Concurrent offers outstanding equipment and support for both its hardware and software and has already demonstrated a commitment to this project."

In the production phase, the Concurrent systems will execute such real-time computational tasks as flight simulation modeling, real-time pilot and co-pilot input, image generator commands, cockpit graphics with touch screens, aural cueing commands, distributed interactive simulation, and ModSAF mapping and entities. - J.M.
