    SIMULATION MODELS The available simulation models range from a small business jet like the Cessna Citation to large transport aircraft including Airbus, Boeing and Fokker aircraft. Also a model of an extended envelope stall demonstrator is available and customer defined or supplied models can be implemented or integrated. All aircraft simulation models used on GRACE are developed using SIMULINK but models coded in C, C++ or Fortran can also be used. All simulation software used on GRACE is developed in-house which enables flexible modification to meet all your needs.

    AVIONICS AND ENVIRONMENT The simulation environment of GRACE includes simulation models of avionics like for instance:FMS - Flight Management System (experimental)TCAS - Traffic alerting and Collision Avoidance SystemADWR - Airborne Doppler Weather RadarGPWS - Ground Proximity Warning SystemAlso generic Autopilot, Autothrust and Fly By Wire systems are available. Cockpit display suites are available for a variety of aircraft including Airbus, Boeing and Fokker. Moreover experimental displays including synthetic vision applications are available. All displays are developed with the NLR Vincent display development tool and can be adapted to include any experimental components or indications. The NLR weather simulation application uses 4D weather grids and feeds the weather radar and the aircraft simulation. The traffic environment can be generated with the stand alone Traffic Manager application (TMX) or by connecting to the NLR ATC simulation facilities, NARSIM Radar and NARSIM Tower.

    When testing a new concept, an avionics system or a completely new aircraft you can save flight test time on the real aircraft and shorten the development cycle by means of flight simulation. Using GRACE in the early stages of the development process can guide this process in the right direction and prevents unnecessary and costly redesign in later stages. GRACE provides a flexible cockpit environment where new systems and procedures can be evaluated under realistic conditions including motion and turbulence. Performing evaluations in GRACE will build you confidence in the implementation of the new system or procedure in the real aircraft. Rehearsing flight test scenarios in GRACE will also build the confidence of the test pilots and helps to optimise the required flight test time on the real aircraft.
