ZedaSoft selected to integrate FAA's 737Max Aircraft Research Simulation using DiSTI Corporation’s GL Studio
October 10, 2019
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has selected ZedaSoft to upgrade its Boeing 737NG simulator with 737MAX displays to facilitate flight deck research studies. The display formats will be developed by the DiSTI Corporation of Orlando FL, a leading provider of graphical user interface development software and services. The resulting displays will be integrated by ZedaSoft using its patented CBA® for Simulation software framework.
The focus of this research will be Human Factors evaluations that examine pilot reaction to the differences between Boeing’s 737NG and 737MAX cockpit configurations. As 737 cockpits move towards larger screens capable of showing multiple pages on a single display, the FAA wants to measure how pilots interact with them. For this program, DiSTI will be building the 737 MAX MDF pages for the FAA utilizing its GL Studio software. ZedaSoft will contribute the necessary hardware upgrades and integration required to complete this endeavor.
