Our Simulation Systems Software Engineers will design, develop and test software for use in a real-time simulation-based 4D training environment that incorporates virtual reality and audio and haptic feedback. The training environment uses commercially available hardware (HTC Vive, Thrustmaster HOTAS), virtual flight simulator software (Prepar3D, XPlane), biometric devices (Zephyr, FitBit), and AI-enabled software agents. Our engineering team creates the simulation interoperability software to integrate the environment using the DIS (IEEE 1278) protocol and multiple application programming interfaces (APIs). The team also conducts systems integration testing for the training environment, including troubleshooting and fault isolation between their software and other commercial or government-owned software.
