* Aeronautical Development Agency, Bangalore India. FlightGear is used as as the image generator for a flight simulation facility for piloted evaluation of ski-jump launch and arrested recovery of a fighter aircraft from an aircraft carrier. * Veridian Engineering Division, Buffalo, NY. FlightGear is used for the scenery and out-the-window view for the Genesis 3000 flight simulator. * [http://www.mathworks.com/access/helpdesk/help/toolbox/aeroblks/
MathWorks] provides the Aerospace Blockset libraries for interfacing FlightGear to their Simulink software.* [http://human-factors.arc.nasa.gov/ihi/hcsl/publications.html NASA/Ames Human Centered System Lab ] - 737NG full scale cockpit simulator developed by [http://www.lfstech.com LFS Technologies]. FlightGear provides visuals for four large screen wrap around displays, improved turbo-fan math models, detailed fuel system models, and extendable network interface to cockpit displays and electronics.
=== ARINC ===
=== RWTH Aachen research simulator ===
The '''Institute of Aerospace Engineering''' at the RWTH Aachen is using FlightGear to drive the cockpit and the visuals of a general aviation simulator for training and research purpose. Micro Air Vehicles are being implemented by MATLAB/Simulink flight dynamics models; all I/O-related tasks, be they required by FDM, controls or instruments, are connected over network, using FlightGear native interfaces. <ref>http://www.dynamik.rwth-aachen.de/English/Simulators</ref>
== Universities ==
* '''University of Illinois''' at Urbana Champaign. FlightGear is providing a platform for icing research for the Smart Icing Systems Project. <ref>http://www.aae.uiuc.edu/sis/mainpapers.html</ref>
* '''Simon Fraser University''', British Columbia Canada. Portions of FlightGear were used in simulation to develop the needed control algorithms for an autonomous aerial vehicle.
* '''Iowa State University'''. A senior project intended to retrofit some older sim hardware with FlightGear based software.
* '''University of Minnesota''' - Human Factors Research Lab. FlightGear brings new life to an old Agwagon single seat, single engine simulator.
* The Intelligent Robotics Group at the '''University of Wales''', Aberystwyth, UK is using FlightGear as part of their aerobot research<ref>http://users.aber.ac.uk/dpb/aerobots.html</ref> to design aerial vehicles that can operate in the atmosphere of other planets. * The '''Delft University of Technology''', the Netherlands used FlightGear for their ICE project. Their goals was to design, test, and evaluate computational techniques that can be used in the development of intelligent situation-aware crew assistance systems. Using methods from artificial intelligence, ICE focused primarily on the data fusion, data processing and reasoning part of these systems. <ref>http://www.kbs.twi.tudelft.nl/Research/Projects/ICE/index.html</ref>* FlightGear is being used as the basic framework to provide the UTC Challenger Center (and hopefully other centers in the future) a low cost virtual reality computer simulation in the '''University of Tennessee''' at Chattanooga. Our simulation is using flightgear and JSBSim, specifically the shuttle module, to develop a shuttle landing simulator. Currently, we are trying to get to the point of at least contributing instructions on how to interface our virtual reality hardware with Flightgear back to the OS community.<ref>http://www.flightgear.org/Projects/utc.html</ref>* '''Department of Aerospace Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University''' used FlightGear primarly for its graphics engine, in advanced research programs in the areas of flight control design, advanced rotorcraft flight dynamics modeling, and near real-time acoustics simulation.<ref>http://www.fkm.utm.my/ftp/pub/OSS/Win32/FlightGear/paper_PSU_2004AHS.pdf </ref>
