Welcome to CUSP


The Carleton University Simulator Project (CUSP) was introduced in the 2002/2003 academic year as an innovative new capstone project with the aim of exposing students to the latest in simulator technology. The CUSP group is lead by a multi-disciplinary team of Lead Engineers, and this year is composed of 18 students from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.


Atlas Mockup

Production is well underway on a full scale prototype of the Atlas flight simulator. This image shows a rendered model of the completed simulator in its permanent home in the Mackenzie building.

The Carleton University Simulator Project has now entered the 2017/2018 academic year. The physical design of the Atlas simulator platform is nearing completion and manufacturing is underway. For more information on the history of the project, please see the About section of this website.
