This paper presents recent advances at ONERA in simulation engineering. Simulation is used for many purposes, from performance evaluation of algorithms to realistic emulation of the real world, including real components such as humans. To design general and scalable simulation software, a flexible architecture needs to be designed. A component-based architecture approach that allows multilevel capitalization and high collaborative sharing between systems experts and computing experts has been developed at ONERA. This architecture allow hybrid simulation involving real devices in the simulation loop to increase the Technology Readiness Level of novel algorithms by emulating real embedded environment. Human-In-the-Loop simulation is also an important tool to study the human interactions with a system. Some recent research projects are presented to illustrate our simulation platforms.
