Computer Science 3 - Glider Winch Host Manager

Open Source Winch Host Manager

Winch Glider

The goal of this project is to develop the host software for controlling an electric winch that is efficient, cost effective, and easy to use. The winch, designed by George Moore, will be used to launch sailplanes, a gliding aircraft often flown for sport. Currently, the process of launching a sailplane is either inefficient or expensive. Our specifications are to write a user interface that will allow a user to store and recall values regarding the pilot, sailplane, and location involved in a launch, and then generate a launch according to those settings. The interface also needs to provide real-time launch data for the operator of the winch. Our approach is a Java-based user interface to take advantage of Java’s portability and usefulness in interface design.
