PapaSpace is a research platform for modern flight simulation written in Java and OpenGL/GLSL. It features real-time, multi-body physics, avionics and flight instruments as well as a visual system. These modules can be used as stand-alone products, or for the purpose of development of new methods and products. The main advantage over other available products is the full flexibility to control and modify the simulation parameters via programmable interfaces.
The high fidelity visual system is targeted to provide the best virtual flying experience on the market. We use the latest rendering technology in OpenGL like deferred rendering, physically based rendering (PBR), volumetric rendering of atmospheric effects, accurate global and local illumination effects, dynamic 3D objects and static sceneries, and much more.
The flight simulation software features real-time, multi-body physics including propulsion systems, aerodynamics and ground contact models. Additional interfaces to other simulation tools such as MATLAB / SIMULINK can be provided on request.
Advanced flight training covers more than stick and rudder
