DIGINEXT announces that summer version of DIRECTCGF is available. It delivers effective new tools, capabilities and improvements. If you are a customer eligible for upgrades, feel free to ask us for download links. Persons who want a complete description of these new features can contact us at directcgf@diginext.fr or meet us at I/ITSEC 2015 booth #721 to see live demos.

New features and updates include:

General

- Improved overall stability and performances

- New tool to prepare geospatial database

- All user interfaces can be localized through an Excel file

- Capacity to load a specific configuration through command line

- Hardware license support with USB dongle

Models and behaviors

- Improved support for air model and behaviors:

>All air models manage a maximum load factor and a usual one

>Improved route following (accuracy)

>Improved holding pattern (infinite, better entry)

>Improved maneuvers like homing, interception and circle

- More realistic kinematic models for rotary wings and sub-surface

Platform Architect

- The entire platform’s library has been checked and updated in order to reflect more realistic platforms:

>All platforms are now initialized with a default speed during scenario creation

>All platform are equipped with correct weapons

Scenario Design

- Capability to mark a platform with a unique identifier. This identifier is also used for distribution

- Better management of tactical data edition (points, lines, surfaces)

- Support of a worldwide database for navigation beacons: ILS, VOR, DME, TACAN, NDB

- Capability to edit platform factories in scenario design (requires a Platform Architect license level)

- GANTT view now supports:

>More warnings or errors during behavior definitions in order to help users to define scenario more quickly.

>Accurate behavior execution time

- Capability to define relative scenarios

Scenario Player

- The entity kinematic control has been redesigned to offer a better user experience (better scales, display current behaviors)

- All tooltips are specialized according to the platform domain. For example, the aircrafts now display their indicated air speed, true air speed, ground speed and vertical speed

- New tool to create, destroy and resupply platforms during scenario execution

- New tools to measure distance and bearing between platforms

- New tools to display a bull-eye on reference point or platform

- Interoperability (HLA, DIS)

- DIS 2012 Support:

>Last IFF Mode 5 & S PDU (DIS 2012) specifications are managed

- Improved DIS Support:

>Better managed of the dead reckoning
