It has become one of the most important issues how to use such elements in an age where information, technology and economic wealth are united. Modeling and Simulation technologies are the forefront as a solution to effective use of information by combining technology with minimum costs.
Modeling and Simulation is the modeling of the real world assets, events and phenomena at the detail level and simulating the real thing in the computer environment. The closeness of reality to the generated simulation, interoperability with other tools, speed, repeatability are critical issues.
The material and assets in the simulated virtual environment are called synthetic environment. Objects that have the ability to make decisions in simulation systems are called agents. Agents take decisions under certain circumstances and act on them as a result of these decisions. The results of these actions affect the synthetic environment, other factors and assets.
Infrastructure softwares are created that enable the simulation model of any complex system in the aviation system to be created and run with a hierarchical architecture, modular and most important. By choosing the most appropriate technique in the modeling system, unnecessary coding repetitions are avoided in simulation applications with a system independent software layer. Thus, it is aimed to minimize the time and work load in the software process.
Modeling and Simulation are technologies that are of great benefit in terms of safety, time and cost, which are now of great interest. In almost all areas of the Defense and Aviation industry, positive training transfer is also provided while enhancing the modeling and simulation infrastructures and the ability of users to perform different analyzes.
Defense and Aeronautics can be used effectively with modeling and simulation technologies for the following purposes:
Simulation systems are defined as the imitation of tasks, relationships, equipment, behaviors, or some cognitive activities that actually exist. Simulation is also described as modeling a real or imaginary system and producing scenarios with these models. Simulation systems can be real-time simulations or fast-time simulations.
Real-time simulation systems are defined as systems that need to perform a specific function or task correctly and within a pre-determined period of time. Time is an important issue in real-time systems.
Fast time simulation systems are systems in which the simulation time and the real time are not the same. Time-critical simulation systems are not time-limited. Examples of fast-time simulations are aircraft movements (departure, road, arrival, approach and air space ground movements) in the Terminal Area . With the scenarios created in this context, important building blocks of the following aviation can be analyzed:
On the other hand, aviation stakeholder workload analysis, delay analysis, conflict analysis can be done using fast time simulation tools and solution proposal is produced.
The progressive development of technology brings convenience to people in their teaching and learning life and offers alternative education options. The virtual environment or virtual reality is one of these options and its use provides great benefits in all areas of the industry.
The virtual environment, defined as a set of computer technologies, in which a computerized life is created and an interface that interacts with computers is provided; allows the user to feel real feelings in three dimensions. Thus, the real-time motion and the reaction of the user interacting in the three-dimensional virtual environment can be measured.
Simulation systems are virtual environments used in the education of users in the aviation sector. The users mentioned here include human and unmanned aerial vehicle pilots, air traffic controllers, aircraft maintenance technicians and other stakeholders. With simulation systems, it is possible to provide the training in a realistic manner by providing conditions that are difficult to give to the pilot candidate in the actual flight operation (engine failure, engine fire, malfunction in flight control systems, creation of different meteorological conditions, emergency situation and situations etc.).
