Form, functionality, and realistic replication in a User Interface

GL Studio produces the highest quality gauges and controls for use across multiple domain spaces. Our software enables the real-time creation of interactive 2D and 3D geometry through a WYSIWYG environment, alleviating the need to write cumbersome low-level graphical code. Geometry creation is performed using intuitive tools for:

  • Drawing
  • Grouping
  • Ordering
  • Texturing

Designs are implemented using a powerful runtime engine which allows for real cross-platform deployment.

Full Mission Displays & Flight Simulators

Replicate cockpit multi-function displays at a fraction of the cost of procuring actual flight hardware.

Part Task Trainers

Reproduce complete aircraft cockpit layouts onto touchscreen displays enabling lower cost knobology training.

Instructor Operator Stations

Repurpose graphical content into iOS, repeater panels, and after action review stations for maximum benefits.
