Hi all, Down here at DSTO we are developing the capability to use DAVE-ML as the native aircraft data format for our flight simulation activities. These activities cover performance estimation, flight dynamic, flight test and HIL simulation. The plan is to encapsulate the aircraft configuration properties, as well as the aerodynamics, propulsion, mass properties and weapons configurations in DAVE-ML datasets, which interact in real time with any of our simulation codes. I think some of you are also directing effort in this direction. To this end, we have been developing a C++ class ( named Janus) to parse the DAVE-ML dataset files and do subsequent data manipulation based on the rules encoded in the dataset. Janus currently supports the processing of tabular data, and we are now including support for managing MATH-ML functional definitions, and the other functionality defined in the DAVE-ML DTD.
A report is being written detailing the Janus class, which I can forward draft of to those interested. I would also be interested in hearing from anyone about possible collaborative activities with developing the Janus class, especially if it helps reduce duplication of activities.
