The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has selected the DiSTI Corporation to develop a 737 MAX Aircraft Research Simulator. The resulting displays will be integrated by ZedaSoft Inc using its CBA for Simulation software framework.
The focus of this research will be Human Factors evaluations that examine pilot reaction to the differences between 737 NG and 737 MAX cockpit configurations. As 737 cockpits move towards larger screens capable of showing multiple pages on a single display, the FAA wants to measure how pilots interact with them.
For this program, DiSTI will be building the 737 MAX MDF pages for the FAA utilizing its GL Studio software. ZedaSoft will contribute the necessary hardware upgrades and integration required to complete this endeavor.
“By leveraging the DiSTI GL Studio graphics software and our CBA for Simulation software framework, we are able to integrate this solution quickly and efficiently to meet the FAA research schedule,” explains Fred Fleury, vice president of Corporate Development.
