Pitch Developer Studio

Generate HLA and DIS Middleware

Pitch Developer Studio is the world’s most powerful tool for efficiently adding HLA or DIS interoperability quickly and easily to your simulator.

Pitch Developer Studio generates professional quality middleware in C++, Java or C#. Integrate the generated module with your own application. The generated code is royalty free. Pitch Developer Studio puts you in control of development cost and time. 

Reduce risk and assure quality in your simulation project with Pitch Developer Studio.


Get an Expert in a Box

Save time and reduce risk and cost with expert-level C++, Java and C# source code generation. Pitch Developer Studio guides you through the process with an interactive GUI. Get robust and high-performing code with great error handling. Both source code and programmer documentation is generated.

Object Oriented Middleware

The generated source code makes simulation data available as C++, Java or C# objects, based on the FOM of your choice. Extend the FOM and regenerate. Use setters and getters to access attributes and parameters in a type-safe way. Data encoding and decoding is handled automatically for you.

Use any FOM

Pitch Developer Studio enables you to develop using any FOM, be it standardized FOMs with or without extensions or custom FOMs. Use it for aerospace and defense simulations or for medical, energy, manufacturing or other domains.

Use a Wide Range of HLA Services

Pitch Developer Studio makes it easy to take advantage of all powerful HLA services. Transfer control of objects and attributes using HLA Ownership Management. Get in control of time using HLA Time Management. Build scalable simulations with HLA Data Distribution Management.

Special RPR FOM Support

The most popular FOM for defense simulation is the Real-time Platform reference FOM. Pitch Developer Studio provides special support for RPR FOM data types. Convenience functions for dead reckoning of positions as well as coordinate conversions are also available out of the box.

DIS Support

Some users of the RPR FOM also want to support the older DIS standard in their application. Use the RPR FOM and the generated code will support most common PDUs. You may also extend the functionality to support custom PDUs of your choosing.
