The VECTOR-SIL solution executes a VECTOR autopilot software version that incorporates a simulator embedded into the autopilot code. The VECTOR-SIL allows customers to train their pilots with UAV Navigation’s system.

The VECTOR-SIL solution executes a VECTOR autopilot software version that incorporates a simulator embedded into the autopilot code. While this assures SIL will behave exactly like the real autopilot at the logic level, execution times and sensor behavior are not the same as in real operation.
HIL on the other hand executes the exact same VECTOR code as the flight ready autopilot relying on an external CPU to create a simulation environment mimics the expected sensor and actuator delays. For control gain adjustment and advanced training, or platform modification testing HIL is the correct option.
|Generic||Custom||VECTOR-HIL allows for complete customization of your aircraft. This includes: custom stability derivatives, ground interaction parameters such as landing gear position, taxi simulation or distributed thrush among multiple engines.|
|-||VECTOR-HIL simulator enables an instructor to control the simulation while the operator student faces the operational awareness he would have during a real flight. In the VECTOR-SIL this setup is not possible.|
|-||HIL simulator is open to platform specific customization of the simulation environment as it is run on a different HW. For example the number and position of the engines or variations in the mass center depending on fuel consumption or payload use.|
