- This new version of the RECOVER benchmark (v3.0), including its aircraft simulation
visualisation capabilities, has been updated to improve compatibility with the latest
versions of Matlab®/Simulink® and Microsoft® Windows®. Version 3.0 of the RECOVER
benchmark now supports both 32 bit and 64 bit environments.
- The RECOVER aircraft animation and simulation visualisations can now be displayed
without the need to install a C-compiler. Customisation of the inputs to the visualisation
tool remains possible if required. In this case, a C-compiler needs to be installed.
- Matlab® 6.5.1 / Simulink® 5.1 (Release 13 / Service Pack 1 (R13SP1)) or later
- Installed C-compiler (only for visualisation customisation)
The GARTEUR RECOVER Benchmark simulation package, accompanying the book 'Fault Tolerant
Flight Control - A Benchmark Challenge' published by Springer-Verlag (2010) under
the Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences series (LNCIS-399), is distributed
as a Collective Work. The Matlab®/Simulink® models of the RECOVER benchmark are distributed
under the Open Software License (OSL) version 3 or later, whereas the RECOVER visualisation
tool remains copyrighted by NLR (although freely distributable with the RECOVER simulation
package). Licensing terms and conditions for use of the software are included with
Please register to acquire the RECOVER software package. Installation instructions
are included as a help file (help.pdf) in the software package. The book provides
further details regarding the benchmark model architecture, mathematical models,
signal and data formats and user examples.
