The program is a computer aided design system for information control field of the cockpit (ICF CAD). ICF CAD provides for modeling of logics and output graphic results of different equipment, and also simplifies the labor-consuming process of creating and correcting of MFD graphic images.

Usage of PriZm ensures interaction with program interface. All the work can be done by a specialist in the field of avionics, weapon use, medicine, psychology, military etc. Moreover, recurrence of results for different projects allows avoiding most of the errors.

PriZm is a new development of two other earlier created program systems of this class. PriZm can become the irreplaceable tool for different types of ergonomic research and debugging of logics of data display system operation, owing to the fact that it utilizes power and potential of the previous systems. It grants additional beneficial working conditions, and ensures a number of new capabilities.

Characteristics and functions

1. Design is conducted in the medium similar to the medium of many computer aided design programs. It has a simple intuitively obvious interface and uses the same principles of interaction with the user. The operations in graphic editor field are conducted with the help of the mouse, and the keyboard is used for input of values of different properties.

Creation of graphic images
Fig. 1

2. Creation of graphic images by multiple hierarchic grouping of the simplest graphic elements (with random extent of embedding) for generation of new properties and characteristics (Fig.1).

3. Designing of indication pictures of any complexity due to sufficient quantity and type of graphic elements.

Relative coordinate system
Fig. 2

4. Relative coordinate system ensures designing of graphic images. For that, the whole picture is divided into hierarchically connected groups of graphic elements. Each group is designed in its own coordinate system and may be shifted and rotated with respect to the parent coordinate system. It structures and makes designing of indication pictures easier, and creates additional favorable conditions at their arranging (Fig.2).

5. Flexible masking mechanism allows creating masks for graphic drawing of any configuration. Moreover, in the process of drawing the mask form can be changed any amount of times (Fig.3).

6. Graphic elements can be displayed both directly and with an allowance of the current mask. Moreover, if required, it may be interpreted inversely (Fig.3).

7. The ability of keeping a record of created graphic elements database for their subsequent multiple use.

8. Capability of adding and deletion graphic elements from the database using the OS buffer and their editing directly within the database.

9. Prompt loading and saving of the database to a separate file, that has optimized format and small size.

Description of input signals

10. Built-in adjustable input signal emulation device.

11. Hierarchic grouping of input signal descriptions and formula dependences.

12. Flexible description of input signals, logics and mathematics of their processing. For the description of formula dependences, a large variety of mathematical functions, arithmetic, logical and bitwise operations may be used. This allows conducting any type of processing for input values (Fig.4).

13. Connection of external devices (*.dll-modules) for selection of input signal values.

14. Capability to run the program during the process of collecting indication pictures in the modeling mode for their debugging and testing. The modeling mode is efficient and is executed in real time. Iinput values change dynamically, built-in powerful calculator calculates the required mathematic formulae, and based on their results, graphic elements are drawn.

TV/video information displaying
Fig. 5

15. Availability of graphic elements with feedback, sensitive to mouth clicks or finger touches in the process of modeling. They create additional beneficial conditions for testing indication pictures, especially while using sensor displays.

16. TV/video information displaying separately or jointly with the graphics created in the program. It is possible to use video files and external video signal sources, connected to the computer (Fig.5).

17. Full-screen displaying of the modeling process. It provides for arranging the cockpit emulator based on the given system, with the possibility of ergonomic research and indication logics testing.

18. Prompt loading and saving of the project to a separate compact and optimized in format file.

19. Document generation for projects based on the earlier created indication pictures. It allows acquiring hypertext description (in the form of a set of html files) of the required indication pictures. The inclusion of information on all input values and mathematic formula of their processing is also possible. The survey of results is possible in any browser.
