Cranes Software International, a scientific and engineering software products and solutions provider, along with MathWorks, makers of MATLAB and Simulink Technical Computing and Simulation software, on Wednesday announced the availability of the Aerospace Blockset 2 in India.
The new FlightGear Flight Simulator Interface builds on the foundation of Simulink and Model-Based Design for aerospace vehicle modelling, simulation, and visualisation.
New features bring high-quality flight simulation graphics to the desktop, where modelling and simulation is more accessible and economical than design and test conducted in a lab.
Additionally, the new version provides off-the-shelf, drag-and-drop representations of aerospace components using standards-based reference models.
Consequently, engineers can use the Aerospace Blockset 2 to optimise vehicle subsystem configurations and rapidly perform subsequent tradeoff studies earlier in the design stage.
Interfacing with FlightGear flight simulator software, new animation blocks in the Aerospace Blockset 2 enable users to visualise vehicle dynamics in a sophisticated 3-D simulation framework.
Engineers can now quickly evaluate and verify complex flight dynamics before committing to a final design by using Simulink for multidomain simulation.
