1.2 Suite module overview

The ProSimA320 Suite consist of individual modules of which ProSimA320 System is the central component. The ProSimA320 System module interacts with your back­end simulator platform software (Microsoft® Flight Simulator™ 10, Lockheed Martin Prepar3D®) therefore, runs on the primary computer. Distribution of all other modules is possible across multiple computers within your simulator configuration.

1.2.1 ProSimA320 System

1.2.2 ProSimA320 Display

Generates all graphical elements such as Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Navigation Display (ND) on the Main Instrument Panels (MIP) Display Units (DU).
