Need programmer for 6 degree of freedom motion platform

I need a programmer to control a 6 degree of freedom motion platform. The
actuators are of the hydraulic type and are controlled by solenoids. The
position of the actuators is sensed by linear potentiometers. You will
interface to a 6 channel A/D converter and MOSFET solenoid drivers. Previous
documented experience with motion platforms is required. This job is in the
Los Angeles area. I will accept either fixed bids or pay by the hour. I
would prefer that the code be in C to run under FreeDOS. It could also run
standalone on a microcontroller if you prefer. The processor that will run
your code will be dedicated to it.

This platform is a fairly large unit, standing about 12' high and measuring
about 15' in length. The actuators are capable, I am told, of driving the
platform at several Gs.

 Only programmers with relevant experience will be considered.

Why not buy a hydraulic motion controller that can do the electronic
camming?    Avoid re-inventing the whee.  Is this a simulator or an
entertainment system?    Look at for the July 2003 article of
the month.  They got that system going very quickly.
