    SDK Simulation Features

    All RTDynamics models are part of a single C++ library, this allows developers to use the same SDK to integrate the products into their simulations. Models can also run in the same simulation world, for example all helicopter and aircraft models can carry EWAWS radar models, or can be targets of a EWAWS missiles.
