  • Automatic trailer parking

    The purpose of this study is to create a set of rules for that an automaton can park a small or long trailer, hooked to a car or truck. The proposed algorithm is based on three points that need to be well positioned and a set of control loops to replicate the driving skills. [button…

  • Radar Raw Data Simulation

    The purpose of this proof of concept is to be able to display a static 5 Ghz radar image with real-time incrustation of moving objects. For this, we are using a C Band radar simulator module from OKTAL-SE to get a raw data output of received dB per angle and ranges. The model illuminates a…

  • Radar Simulation for Maritime Surveillance

    The project was requesting a radar visualizer toolkit to be fully adaptable to be integrated into a much bigger user panel. vsRAD is written in C and based on OpenGL. It is provided as a library with a complete and open API to customize every aspect of the display. In this solution, vsTASKER was used…

  • Building a pushback simulator from scratch

    This proof of concept demonstrates the use of vsTASKER to simulate a pushback maneuver on an airport tarmac. The final intend is to proceed on an aircraft carrier where limited space and congestion requires caution and training (second video below). The pushback or towing implies articulated parts physic based on simple Newton laws. Under a…

  • ADS-B use in ATC simulation

    For ATC training and studies, vsTASKER provides a convenient environment to build traffic using flight plans based on ARINC 424 RNAV database. As a simulator builder, bespoke control panels can be defined inside vsTASKER to give the end user all the resources to monitor and interact with the air traffic situation. These control panels can…

  • Fire at take-off and emergency landing

    In this demo, vsTASKER is used to steer and automatically control an A340 at take-off from Toulouse airport for a predefined standard departure (vsTASKER supports ARINC 424 Navigation Data and enroute flight-plans). During take-off, instructor triggers an engine fire. Aircraft is stabilized then initiates a short circle for an emergency landing. For the sake of…

  • CIGI Benchmarking (VBS-IG & FAST-IG)

    vsTASKER can use CIGI protocol to control an external Graphic Engine using message data packets. As the two software (simulation and graphic engines) are often running on separate computers to optimize the resources, LAN is used for communication. Although sockets access is less efficient than direct memory access, the comfort of working with a remote…

  • High Frequency Radio Waves Propagation

    Use of vsTASKER to simulate high frequency radio waves propagation on a mountainous terrain. The purpose of this simulation is to qualify telecommunications based on portable low powered (5-50 watts) radio equipment. Radio devices characteristics are used for transmission and reception capacities while radio waves physics are computed for propagation, attenuation, topographic obstructions (...) according…

  • Triton Integration for maritime simulation

    Triton ocean library from Sundog Software is available for OpenSceneGraph. As vsTASKER produces native code for OSG, combining the two was good enough for a simple battleship game built under vsTASKER and deployed on vsVIEWER (the Qt free player of vsTASKER simulation engine). Triton library can be bought here. All logic is handled by vsTASKER. Ship dynamics…

  • VBS 3 Integration using ASI interface

    vsTASKER 6.1 provides a gateway to VBS3 using a LAN communication with a special plugin loaded by VBS. Based on the ASI interface, vsTASKER will send VBS script commands and will receive update data for all entities running in the VBS simulation for synchronization. It is then possible to let vsTASKER handle some parts of…

  • Satellite Communications

    With the Satellite module of vsTASKER, doing satellite communications assessment in real or fast time is simple. Import any satellite from TLE data or define the orbit using the six Keplerian elements than use our SGP4 or Two-Body propagator to accurately predict the position of the satellite in space for any Julian time. Add to…

  • Trajectory Optimization for Missile flying NOE

    Using its high performance runtime engine, vsTASKER can be used for optimal search using various strategies. Monte Carlo simulation, batch mode, stochastic optimization or heuristic methods can be combined to explore the good or best solutions for a given situation. vsTASKER can explore thousands or millions of configurations and store the result on databases. For…

  • Optimal Radar Positioning for Missile Detection

    For this project, we had to setup a system which is capable of simulating radars with a predefined coverage and some probability of detection curves along distance and object cross-section. The radar detection has to work on a 3D terrain (DEM or polygonal) with shadow effects according to depression angles. For each scenario, there are…

  • Satellite and Orbit Editing for Space Simulation

    vsTASKER includes now orbit definition and propagator to address satellite and spaceships simulations without requiring another product. Orbits can be defined automatically from TLE description provided by organisms such as NORAD (see here). Once an orbit is defined, a satellite or spaceship can be attached and moved along this orbit using one of the three…

  • Satellite Toolkit (STK) Integration

    STK from AGI is a powerful tool for sensor simulation and orbit calculation. However, when it gets to real time simulation with branches, conditions, decisions making (...) vsTASKER makes the process simpler and more flexible. vsTASKER supports natively some integration schemes provided by STK: [checklist] Connect using LAN Active/X COM [/checklist] With each API, vsTASKER…

  • HMI Builder – A Graphical User Interface for your Simulations

    When building a simulation including various entities, behaviors, models, states (...) it becomes essential to have a graphical user interface that can synthesize the situation, display internal states of any selected entity and provide visual cue to the user on the running situation. More over, being able to quickly and easily change settings, values, states…

  • Control Panel for UAV Simulation

    vsTASKER offers many useful features for exercises and missions involving drones and operators. STANAG 4586 standard for interoperability is supported. Search-Patterns can be dropped on the map and specialized to allow any kind of flight plan. The HMI builder provides support to design a UAV control panel which includes payload camera views, maps, replicated instruments…

  • VegaPrime Integration

    VegaPrime used to be the widest 3D stealth viewer used in the military simulation worldwide (see Presagis). vsTASKER embeds a dedicated viewer which allows the user to directly work with VegaPrime native function calls. vsTASKER generates C++ code that compiles and links with the VegaPrime libraries. The simulation engine is included into the 3D engine.…

  • Missile to Missile

    vsTASKER has been used to model the counter measure of a ship against a simultaneous attack of two surface to surface missiles (SSM) launched by an enemy ship. Because the tool generates native code for VegaPrime, using this IG for the visualization was simple. Both countermeasures has been tested against the incoming missiles: [checklist] Missile…

  • Airport Simulation using Geo-specific Imagery

    vsTASKER has been used in some ATC simulation since it support ARINC 424 format and flight-plan definitions. With the Map-on-Demand capability (online and offline), it is possible to setup a realistic God-Eyes-View simulation on any airport of the word by just setting the terrain view on a particular area, draw or import ground taxi-lines, SID…
