DiSTI, AAI to Upgrade Air Force T-25 Simulator

DiSTI, a global leader in the development of Human Machine Interface (HMI) software, was selected by AAI Corporation to support the upgrade of the Air Force T-25 Simulator for Electronic Combat Training (SECT) system. DiSTI will be delivering GL Studio(R) tools and services under the terms of the contract.

The T-25 SECT system is a software-based training aid for electronic countermeasures hosted on commercial, off-the-shelf personal computers. Students at Randolph Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas will use interactive combat laboratory exercises as well as simulated training missions to learn the principles of electronic countermeasures.

DiSTI will use their next generation HMI development toolkit, GL Studio, to design and develop the cockpit instruments. These instruments will be displayed across three touch screen monitors driven by a single computer. The training device will have the ability to reconfigure instrument palettes based on the selected training scenario. Each display palette will simulate the wide variety of equipment at the electronic warfighter’s disposal.

A partial list of the displays to be developed include a digital signal oscilloscope, a radio intercom panel, a direction finder, a radar warning receiver, and threat jammer panels. These panels and others will be developed through photographs of the actual devices or through devices already developed by DiSTI and residing in their Reusable Software Object (RSO) library.

The GL Studio based solution will deliver a high fidelity hands on training system with substantially lower development, maintenance and operational costs compared to traditional hardware based solutions. The use of inexpensive COTS computer hardware will help maintain operational readiness and simplify logistics support by reducing spares requirements.
