FMC (Flight Management Computer) Requirements
FMC for Microsoft Flight Simulator
1) We want an FMC to be written in as much XML code as possible. We do this ourselves.
The FMC needs to have the ability to program a flight plan, edit a flight plan and access the waypoint data from a flight plan.
The primary problem is we can not create, access or edit FS flight plans in an FMC written in XML. Also, XML gauges are unable to
read data files for obtaining the required navigation data or store a flight plan.
The ability to program and edit a flight plan, and access the waypoint data from a flight plan, can be achieved using a gauge
written in C++. This ‘core’ gauge would have a common set of functions which would be applicable to the entire Airbus range. Only
the XML interfacing gauges (inputs and outputs) would require customizing for each aircraft type.
Other requirements are the ability to program climb altitude steps, the angle of climb and the speed. These step points will also be
in the flight plan as points to begin an ascent, descent or hold at given altitudes. Also required are fuel burn calculations.
2) Envisaged FMC operation is as follows.
The main graphic interface is produced by an XML coded gauge. When various areas of this graphic are clicked, L:Variables are sent
to a central 'core' which is programmed in C++ and will interact with the L:Variables. The 'core' will also output L:Variables to
feed information to the FMC graphics screen and to other gauges.
The ‘core’ will be able to read nav data files to obtain waypoint information and act as a storage area for the Flight Plan.
This project means working together with our own XML programmers to combine powers and create the FMC.
Output L:Variables will be used by the AutoPilot, MFD (moving map and waypoint data) and PFD (speeds, angles, altitudes, etc.).
The FMC obtains navigation data (ICAO code, runway altitude, Lat, Long) from separate data (usually text) files. FMC's to date are
not able to access the nav data built-in to FSX. Actually, this may be old information. Latest consultations with people
‘in-the-know’ say it is possible to access the nav data built into FSX. This will need to be researched together.
We can supply a list of required L:Variables to you.
