Throughout the life of a simulator there are numerous technological and regulatory changes that will occur. To maintain its training capability, a simulator may require several updates to accommodate new technology and regulatory requirements.

Quadrant has a dedicated team of engineers that can implement these updates on any simulator from any era. Quadrant are able to offer design services covering all engineering disciplines including Systems, Software, Electrical and Mechanical Design.

Our team has practical experience from performing updates on simulators from each of the major OEMs and has continually demonstrated a firm commitment to ensuring the update is completed to schedule to the customer’s satisfaction.

Given the diverse range of technologies and simulator backgrounds, experience has shown that each update is unique with its own set of highly specific requirements. Quadrant’s team of engineers assess each update on a case by case basis and produce a design approach that is tailored to the needs of the program. In addition, Quadrant has developed a suite of products to assist in facilitating Updates.

Quadrant is able to offer updates solutions to every system in the Simulator including:

  • Re – Host Solutions
  • Avionics Updates (eg FMS, EGPWS, TCAS, Weather Radar)
  • Full Flight Deck Upgrade
  • Aero & engine model
  • Qualification Test Guide
  • IOS
  • Visual System
  • Motion System
  • Control loading system
  • Aviation Authority Certification 


Military simulation programs are very highly specialized. They demand expert knowledge and substantial experience, both of which Quadrant can supply in depth.

Our military simulation specialists have worked on all types of equipment which include turbo prop aircraft, fast jets, heavy transports, helicopters, tanks & submarines. We have undertaken major projects for military authorities in various parts of the world.

Our long-standing commitment to cost-effective, commercial off-the-shelf technical solutions to simulation requirements has been applied frequently and highly successfully to military programs.

  • Flight Deck Reconfigurations
  • Visual System Replacements
  • Global Positioning System Integrated Navigation System (GINS)
  • Aerodynamic Upgrades
  • Host Replacements
  • Skywatch & TCAS Installations
  • SIFF/RVSM/8.33 Khz/HF Additions
  • Wide Area Network Gateways

These include 1553 bus-based Avionics and Full Mission Simulator Instructor Operating Systems. Military programs normally call at some stage for an extensive Upgrade to an existing simulator to improve training transfer from the aircraft in critical areas such as air-to-air re-fuelling.

Quadrant have carried out a wide variety of military upgrades including some particularly complex assignments. We have also participated in the manufacturing of full flight simulators, along with relocations/installations and PDS work at various military sites worldwide.


Quadrant have undertaken numerous Avionics update programs to flight simulators.


Aero / Engine Model

Quadrant have a skilled team of Engineers who have undertaken the implementation of Aero & engine model updates to flight simulators.


Visual Upgrades

Quadrant provide expert engineering knowledge and products to undertaken complex visual system updates to flight simulators of all generations.



Quadrant has completed programs that have required a rehost of the simulator computer system. This has been accomplished by one of several means.
