Applications Products Services Support About EuroSim
The new EuroSim Mk6.5 distribution is now available. We have backported many of the improvements to the Mk6.3 while the 6.4 and 6.5 were being released because there are some interface changes in the 6.5. If you want to upgrade please consult the helpdesk as we expect to release a 6.6 which has some improvements that could not be performed in the 6.5 due to running projects.
The new EuroSim Mk6.3 distribution is now available. Due to the Euclid and DreamChaser projects we have had a fast evolution of features and resolved various problems. In particular we added various forms of mil bus logging to the Mil1553 front end models and improved the support for enumerated types in recording and stimuli as well as the transformation of these from Matlab Simulink.
The new EuroSim Mk6.1 distribution is now available. The 6.1 further extends the 6.0 on the Mil1553 bus interface. In cooperation with AIM we further extended the driver with hard realtime access methods. The 6.1 is capable of supporting multiple busses over multiple multistream boards. It also support not only the remote terminal side, but also the bus controller side. The ThermoMra example has been extended and utilizes the plugin. As a consequence of using the plugin technology it becomes possible to further minimize the variety in schedule files as the dependency on the hardware is shielded from EuroSim. The sasme plugin solution also applies to the Discrete Front-End. Current developments at Airbus are on providing the plugin for the Euclid program, making the interfacing with Airbus ESPRiT discrete front-ends much easier for the future.
The new EuroSim Mk6.0 distributions is now available. This upgrtade provides many new features including support to start a simulator in the debugger and integrated display of timing in the simulation controller. Furthermore we added a brand new model architecture approach designed for EGSE and based on the succesful GAIA simulator developments. The solution extends the native C++ API. This API now also includes Front-End models which separate the equipment models from the specific Front-End hardware and making the interface with equipment a lot easier.
The new EuroSim Mk5.3 distributions are now available. This upgrade features many improvements, including an improvement on the Development editors:
Project Manager, ModelEditor, ModelDescriptionEditor, ParameterExchangeEditor,
CalibrationEditor. The latter three are now subeditors of the ModelEditor and
have improved integration. The ParameterExchangeEditor also supports Calibrations on dataflows.
The new Eurosim Mk5.2 distributions are now available. This upgrade mainly focusses on supporting new platforms, though we also have resolved software problems, imrproved the native C++ interface and added Enterprise Architect UML transformations and codegeneration capabilities.
The new Eurosim Mk5.1 distributions are now available. In this distribution we have integrated our Enterprise Architect UML Extension and documented its usage in the User Manual. This release also marks the return of Eurosim for Windows. With a complete rehaul of our build environment we are now providing a complete new build with updated tools and components and able to run on Windows7. The installation is simplified with a new installer that you can run from your provided software download section on our website. Due to the variety in PCs and software that can interfere with EuroSim operation, we do see the 5.1 as a beta stage for EuroSim. Feedback from customers and partners will be used to solve further problems and provided via the 5.2 release already anticipated for August (64-bit versions).
The new Eurosim Mk5 distributions are now available. The website has been updated to better serve the customer in requesting the right version of the product. EuroSIm Mk5 is available for Concurrent Redhawk 6 and 5, Redhat EL 6 and 5 and fedora core 10. The windows XP version is expected soon, the windows 7 version is anticipated to come available with release 5.1
The new Eurosim Mk5 suite has been demonstrated at SESP. The following presentation provides an overview of the new products and services that are introduced with Mk5: EuroSim Mk5 Products & Services.
The EuroSim Consortium will showcase three different setups at the SESP 2012 conference. We welcome all conference members to see demonstrations of the new EuroSim Mk5 features and OpenIGS2 visualization products. In addition a demonstration using Concurrent computers and National Instruments interface card in combination with EuroSim Mk5 and the Terma TCS will demonstrate hard realtime capabilities.
Anticipating the release of our EuroSim Mk5 version at the Simulation and EGSE for Space Programmes conference held from 25-27 September at ESA/Estec,Noordwijk, The Netherlands, we updated our website. You will find that the products, services and support pages have been extended.
A new version of the Model-Oriented Software Automatic Interface Converter (MOSAIC) has been released. MOSAIC is now at version 9, supporting MATLAB R2010b and Eurosim Mk4.4. See the MOSAIC add-on page for details.
Jeroen Moelands and Johan Kos from the National Aerospace Laboratory (NLR) presented the results of the study Standard Compliance of EuroSim, in which EuroSim's SMP2 support has been completed. For more details, see the presentation EuroSim SMP2 Compliance.
The Generic Guidance, Navigation and Control Simulator (GGNCSim) is a toolbox that allows a developer to build a Guidance, Navigation and Control simulation model that is usable from both Matlab/Simulink and EuroSim. The tool has been used by Airbus Defence and Space and the National Aerospace Laboratory (NLR) in major space projects and is now made available to customers. See the Generic Guidance, Navigation and Control Simulator Addon page for more information.
The consortium has released a new version of EuroSim. The brand new EuroSim 4.4 features extensive support for the ESA Simulation Modeling Support version 2 standard. Version 4.4 is now available for Redhawk 5.4, Redhat Enterprise 5 and 6, and Fedora Core 10. Other releases can be provided on request. More information can be found in the EuroSim Software User Manual, available via the Support page on this website.
After their initial training up to Developer level at Airbus Defence and Space Netherlands, the team of engineers from Turkish Aerospace Industries returned on 30 November to Airbus DS to complete their EuroSim training up to Specialist level. The benefit of training at Airbus Defence and Space NL is that we can provide some 'expert' sessions, where we ask available experienced engineers to give a presentation about their work or specialist area in relation to EuroSim. This time we were lucky to have Chris Skluzacek from Cesium Software to talk about the brand new OpenIGS2 visualisation tool that is scheduled for release in January, and Erik Schenkeveld from Airbus DS to explain and demonstrate the new GGNCSim add-on also scheduled for release in January 2012. Besides these presentations, the team of engineers from TAI were invited by ESA/Estec in Noordwijk for a demonstration of the Avionics Test Bench, which is a good example of the use of EuroSim in the project lifecycle of avionics sytem development. For more information on EuroSim courses please see the EuroSim Training web pages. If you have an interest in attending a course, either with your team in your own class, or by joining an open class, please contact us and let us know.
The consortium is in the process of updating the webpages. Our first focus is to restructure, update and complete all information, before we start focussing on a more modern look and feel. The structural improvements have improved the overview of what we cover, distinctioning between products and services. For the products we are now working on extending our product suite in licenses, systems and partner products. Where previously only licenses were available, we now are working on providing a wider range of products to help customers getting started quickly.
After their initial training in EuroSim up to Developer level at Airbus Defence and Space Netherlands, the training for the engineers of the National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Sciences continued at NARRS headquarters from 18-22 October in Cairo, Egypt. The engineers attended the Software- and Hardware in the Loop courses and earned the 4-star EuroSim Specialist level certification. For more information please see the EuroSim Training web pages
After formal tests, EuroSim Mk4.3 is now available on Linux.
A brief summary of the main new features in EuroSim Mk4.3:
The following Linux distributions are supported for Mk4.3:
The above distributions are of the shelf available. Other distributions are possible on request, though we recommend to use the above distributions as these are in continuous use within the consortium. EuroSim Mk4.3 will not be provided for Windows XP in anticipation of the Windows 7 release. Irix is no longer supported for new EuroSim releases as no customers are anticipated for sgi
From Tuesday September 6th, to Friday September 9th 4 engineers from Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) attended a 4 day training consisting of the Foundation, Developer and brand new Software-in-the-Loop courses at Airbus Defence and Space Netherlands premises. By completing this intensive training they have earned the 4-star EuroSim Specialist level certification. We are looking forward to complete the training series at TAI premises with the Runtime and Hardware-in-the-Loop courses For more information please see the EuroSim Training web pages
From Tursday June 16th, to Wednesday June 23rd another 5 day EuroSim courseweek was held at Airbus Defence and Space premises. A class of 14 engineers attended a sequence of Foundation, Runtime, Developer and Hardware-in-the-Loop courses.
