During the lifetime of a flight simulator computing technology will advance considerably and the supportability and computing capacity of the original host computer platform may not be sufficient to support operation and potential updates of simulator.
Quadrant has completed programs that have required a re-host of the simulator computer system. This has been accomplished by one of several means:
- Computer emulation
- Re-host to a more powerful version of the original computing system
- Re-host to Quadrant’s own real time Linux platform
