Enhanced Software Suite
The MPS Enhanced Software Suite (ESS) provides a wide array of training, administrative and engineering functions. This will maximise benefits from an MPS simulator. Some of these functions are provided online, others help interface with third party software or are stand-alone enhancements.
MPS ProVision is a software platform helping MPS customers to maintain, control and operate their simulator. The platform integrates seamlessly with the simulator software and provides administrative, training and booking tools. MPS continuously expands and updates the functionality of this platform.
MPS ProVision software is hosted using Windows Azure and can be accessed through the web. This single web application interfaces with the main simulator software including the configuration of all your MPS simulators. ProVision maintains and monitors the active configuration of each simulator. All events are stored and are accessible for easy maintenance and diagnostics.
MPS ProVision for training
Unsupervised Training Mode (UTM), Lesson Plans
• Unsupervised Training Mode (UTM), Lesson Plans
• Unsupervised training option for crews
• Additional IOS mode with fixed lesson plans
• UTM Start up procedure requiring log in with personal details of crew
• Lesson management instructions for UTM presented on the IOS
• UTM training report printed at the end of the session
• UTM Lesson Plans can be created and loaded remotely
• Flight envelop parameters (OFDM) can be programmed so that the simulator will generate a warning if certain parameters are exceeded
MPS ProVision for support
• Instructors report findings in the Techlog.
• Instructors can review the Techlog before starting a session.
• Maintenance can decide if further support is required.
MPS ProVision for admin
• Graphic overview of all bookings during certain time periods
• Hourly, daily and Monthly view

Certain CAA’s are accepting electronic QTG’s. This eliminates the need for printouts of hundreds of pages of reference data. MPS supports electronic QTG’s from the Instructor Operator Station. All QTG’s are digitally formatted according to ARINC standard 610C Option for dedicated eQTG station to be used for recurrent QTG certifications.
rePlay is a realtime debrief functionality in the simulator. The last 5 minutes (up to 15 minutes) can be replayed including moving of all pilot control inputs such as control column, wheel, rudder and thrust levers. Instructor controls the functionality to move forward or backward through the replay session. After the replay the simulator session can be resumed as normal. This is a very powerful briefing tool allowing the instructor to show when certain mistakes were made.
The IOS tablet can be used to interface with the simulator instead of the fixed instructor screen. All features of the fixed instructor screen are also available on the tablet. This allows the instructor to freely move around the cockpit while maintaining control over the simulator.
MPS interfaces with leading SATCE (Simulated Air Traffic Control Environment) systems. This training technology delivers realistic crew workloads and supports the development of core pilot competences, including situational awareness and communication. Speech technology reinforces proper radio phraseology to new pilots, including those who speak English as a second language. These fully automated systems eliminate the need for an already overburdened instructor to role-play.
MPS interfaces with selected UPRT training tools. These tools visualize the flight envelope of certain type of aircraft. The tools support instructors in providing UPRT related training.
MPS is able to load Teledyne Flight data and replay this on the FTD. This way certain flight scenarios can be reproduced and analysed. All recorded flight instruments and indications can be replayed including AutoPilot Mode annunciation and flight director indication. Some systems can be customized to set same condition or create a What If scenario. Even the visual can be set to mimic the same condition as it was during the actual flight.
