AbstractMany existing flight simulators currently lack the aerodynamics modeling required to train pilots for stall/upset conditions. Further, the process of updating an existing simulator database can be difficult and costly due to simulation database rights licensing, complex simulation host architectures, and the need to re-validate updated models. The proposed effort will address this need and overcome these limitations through the introduction of an external hardware/software host called the StallBox. With this solution, the StallBox is integrated with the existing simulator, requiring only minor changes to the existing system software to enable the communication between the StallBox and the simulator host. With the StallBox, the host database remains untouched and the aerodynamic model elements needed to provide the enhanced stall/upset model capability are introduced into the existing simulation only when the simulated aircraft"s flight conditions demand it. In this manner, the existing simulation host architecture and proprietary database remain unmodified, and the validation of the existing configuration is not violated.
