DiSTI to Develop MK88A Cockpit Procedure Trainer Instrumentation, IOS

DiSTI, a global leader in Human Machine Interface (HMI) development, announces a new contract to develop the MK88A Cockpit Procedure Trainer (CPT) Instrumentation and Instructor Operator Station for ESG Elektroniksystem und Logistik GmbH in Germany. ESG won the contract for the SeaLynx MK88A Helicopter CPT from the German Navy and will deliver within the year. DiSTI’s contract with ESG requires simulated instruments for the SeaLynx MK88A Helicopter CPT to be represented by graphical, interactive touch screen displays.

“After conducting a thorough evaluation of Human Machine Interface tools,” said Dr. Peter Stütz, Director of Simulation & Training for ESG’s Aircraft Division, “our group concluded that GL Studio would make a beneficial addition to our existing workflow and enhance the quality of what we can bring to our customers. While GL Studio is currently in use on 2 programs here at ESG, we have plans to move forward using GL Studio with additional programs in the near future. I am also very satisfied with the support DiSTI has provided and the results we have achieved thus far.”

“We are thrilled to be working with ESG on this program,” said DiSTI President Joe Swinski. “This program is a major step for DiSTI’s professional engineering services group expansion into the international market, and we look forward to a prolonged mutually beneficial business relationship with ESG.”
