SDE Pilot interface software framework – SW010 Display Customization Software

SW010 is a proprietary software developed and supported by IBSD for use in experimental electric powered aircraft. The SW010 Software is extremely powerful and versatile in adapting outputs from electric vehicle power and battery control systems to displayable cockpit data essential for the safe operation and testing of the system to power a general aviation aircraft. The proprietary source code was developed by Stephan Diecke based on years of research and experience across multiple aircraft platforms and operating systems and is the source of its ability to be adapted to electric aircraft.
This Software features a Framework for Primary Flight Displays in electric propulsion Aircraft on an installed tablet or IPad display and to do so it has several modules customized for specific applications.

I. Available Modules Description:

  1. Main: Features all flight critical information for the pilot on one page.
  2. BMS: Features all information regarding a BMS on one page.
  3. Controller: Features all information regarding the Motor Controller on one page.
  4. Autopilot: Features all information and inputs for an Autopilot in two pages.
  5. Radio: Features information and inputs for a radio in one page.
  6. ATC/Traffic: Features all information and inputs for an Transponder and Traffic information in one page.
  7. Airdata: Features information and input for an Air Data Computer.
  8. Diagram: Features access to all data readouts in an in flight accessible diagram in one page.

II. Software Features:

  1. All Data is logged in a non-volatile retrievable file (via USB or Ethernet).
  2. Fully CAN-Bus integrated.
  3. CAN-Bus can be connected via: USB, RS232 or SocketCAN.
