Announcing RTDynamics SDK Release 6

We are proud to announce the immediate availability of RTDynamics C++ SDK Release 7. This major release includes several new features and bug fixes.

What’s New?

FixedWingLib CGF
• Improvements to Follow Route maneuver
– There are two waypoint types now: FlyOver and FlyBy. You can specify whether the aircraft shall fly by or over the given waypoint.
– Automatic speed control feature added. Now it is possible to assign a time to a waypoint and request that the virtual pilot automatically determines the speed such that the aircraft arrives to this waypoint at the requested time.
• Various initial waypoint selection methods added (FIRST_WAYPOINT_IN_TRAVERSAL_DIRECTION, USER_PROVIDED_INDEX, CLOSEST_VERTEX)
• Added support for rotational wind including rotational component of turbulence.
• Improved trim method.

RotorLib FDM

  • Major improvements to helicopters editing workflow in RIME
    • New RTDynamics Simulation Server application, which supports control loading system support, CIGI support, X-plane support, QTG Generation.
    • It is now possible to define different lift and drag curves in different parts of a blade.
    • Blade chord and twist can now be defined as a curve along the blade span.
    Drive train model improved to support transmission losses.

RotorLib CGF
• New Quadcopter Drone model
• New trim functionality
• Virtual Flight now supports RotorLib CGF
• Flight model improved so that the maximum rotor thrust of the helicopters reduces with altitude to simulate altitude dependent performance changes.
• Follow Route maneuver improvements. There are two waypoint types now: FlyOver and FlyBy. Also automatic speed control feature added. Now it is possible to assign a time to a waypoint and request that the virtual pilot automatically determines the speed such that the helicopter arrives to this waypoint at the requested time.

EWAWS
• Added a physically based Radar Warning Receiver model.
• A new radar model called “GenericFighterRadar” introduced.
– New radar modes: RWS, TWS, STT
– S, STT – Antenna stabilization
– Target designation (bugging)
– Search region adjustment (antenna azimuth, elevation, azimuth gate width, bar count etc.)
• MilitaryGenericRadar model extended to support following scanning methods: Circular, Sector, Raster. Also support for stabilization added.

FixedWingLib FDM
• Improved trim method
• Static air pressure variable added to GenericAerodynamicModel

SDK (common to all products) 
• Main model configuration format is rtdcfg now.
• RIME functionality is massively improved
• Support for VC 2015 added. Support for VC 2010 32 bit dropped.
• Reflection feature introduced for all ConfigParam classes.

Unity Integration

FixedWingLib CGF is now available in Unity via a thin DLL layer. This makes using FixedWingLib CGF aircraft in Unity C# scripts possible. So far the basic functionality is exposed to the DLL/Unity interface:

  • aircraft instantiation as regular Unity game objects
  • simple mission tasks such as waypoint/route following
  • typical high level FixedWingLib CGF controls like basic flight
  • joystick control
  • turbulence and wind

Extending the DLL and exposing more functionality to Unity scripts is quite straightforward. Please contact support@rtdynamics.com for the source code.

Initial speed and turbulence severity
Initial speed and turbulence severity
unity_hierarchy
Multiple FixedWingLib CGF aircraft can be easily added to the scene. 3d model or camera can be attached to the aircraft,which is a regular Unity game object anyway.
unity_mission_script
Scenario specific tasking is placed into a separate script. This one allows joystick flight for the jet and defines and activates a simple route for the tanker aircraft.
