Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

* The '''University of Naples''', Italy used Flightgaer in a six degrees of freedom (6dof) motion simulator, serving as a research and training tool.<ref>[{{cite web |url=http://wpage.unina.it/agodemar/DSV-DQV/AIAA_MST_2007_DeMarco_Coiro_Nicolosi_paper.pdf |title=A 6DOF Flight Simulation Environment for General Aviation Aircraft with Control Loading Reproduction]|last=Coiro |first=Domenico P. |coauthors=De Marco, Agostino; Nicolosi, Fabrizio |date=2007 }}</ref>
* '''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.
* '''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 Aerobot Research], Dave Barne</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>[{{cite web |url=http://www.kbs.twi.tudelft.nl/Research/Projects/ICE/index.html |title=The Intelligent Cockpit Environment (ICE) Project], |last=Ehlert |first=Patrick |date=18 January 2005 |publisher=TU Delft}}</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>[{{cite web |url=http://www.fkm.utm.my/ftp/pub/OSS/Win32/FlightGear/paper_PSU_2004AHS.pdf |title=A Multi-Disciplinary Rotorcraft Simulation Facility Composed of Commodity Components and Open Source Software], |publisher=Department of Aerospace Engineering, The Pennsylvania State University}}</ref>
* A team of '''Northeastern University''' (Boston, USA) engineering students has developed a system that allows a pilot to fly a simulated airplane in FlightGear, using nothing more than his or her brainwaves.<ref>[http://www.northeastern.edu/news/stories/2011/05/braincontrol.html A brainy innovation takes flight]</ref>
* The '''Aeronautical Engineering University''' of Argentina uses FlightGear to display the outside view of their simulator. Pictures can be seen at http://gsdv.com.ar/fotos/20110528/index.html.
