Engagement Summary

10x was initially approached by Boom in early 2022. We quickly provided them with two senior avionics contractors. The engagement revolved around the two 10x engineers working closely with Boom’s avionics engineers to expand the capabilities of their custom X-Plane flight software simulation. The 10x engineers implemented a simulated real-time LSO (Landing Safety Officer) and PLAT camera (Pilot Landing Aid Television) views of the flight model as well as accurately diagnosing and correcting simulation 3D model errors that were leading to false feel of the sim for the test pilots. 

Customer Testimonial

“Working with 10x’s flight software engineers was a refreshingly positive experience. They were able to absorb technical material with little guidance and independently arrive at well-thought-out solutions. 10x provided debugging, troubleshooting, and analysis of our XB-1 Experimental Aircraft as well as significant contributions to the onboard fuel system module. They also expanded our X-Plane flight simulation capabilities enabling test pilots to prepare for the first flight of the Boom Supersonic Jet. We’re lucky to have their team of incredible talent.”
