Abstract:This document presents the work to develop a human-in-the-loop flight simulator. The document outlines the building of a Simulink library that connects with the GTM T2 dynamics model, X-Plane, cockpit gauges, and cockpit controls. The inner workings of each block and the computer code that handles the communication between Simulink and the environment is also presented, in an effort to aid in expandability and adaptation beyond the current implementation. The inner workings of basic cockpit gauge display are presented and detailed to aid in future iterations. Finally, a completed system consisting of the Simulink system, X-Plane visuals, and cockpit controls and display is shown to have more than acceptable real-time performance for use in validation of a flight control system.
