The ProSimA320 Suite consist of individual modules of which ProSimA320 System is the central component. The ProSimA320 System module interacts with your Simulator Platform software (Microsoft® Flight Simulator™ 10, Lockheed Martin Prepar3D®) therefore, runs on the primary computer. Distribution of all other modules is possible across multiple computers within your simulator configuration.
To improve performance the suite architecture provides flexibility with regard to system load balancing, the number of monitor outputs, cockpit and environmental audio separation.
ProSimA320 Suite architecture:
For simulators based on Microsoft® Flight Simulator™ 10 and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D®, the Platform Interface is a combination of SimConnect and FSUIPC by Pete Dowson.
ProSimA320 Suite modules brief summary:
ProSimA320 System: Manages the simulation of aircraft systems, acts as a central network hub for all ProSimA320 Suite modules, interfaces with your hardware components, configured by graphical interfaces and features a webserver for the Instructor Operating Station (IOS).
ProSimA320 Display: Generates all graphical elements such as Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Navigation Display (ND) on the Main Instrument Panels (MIP) Display Units (DU). Creates graphical representations of the different panels within the cockpit, can be used to check the state of switches / indicators and displays the panels also without hardware.
ProSimA320 MCDU: The Master Control Display Unit (MCDU) controls the Flight Management System (FMS). This module provides possible connection of the MCDU in your cockpit or to display a graphical representation without hardware.
ProSimA320 Audio: Provides genuine cockpit sounds independent from the environmental sound. Default sounds can be customised and new sound events can be added.
ProSimA320 Hardware Connector: Allows the connection of a part of the cockpit hardware components to a secondary computer.
ProSimA320 Flight Model: Provides realistic aircraft behaviour and a visual model with customisable livery.
ProSimA320 IOS: – The Instructor Operating Station gives the controllability of the simulator by use of a web interface.
