Comms simulation specialists ASTi will be using I/ITSEC 21 to showcase a number of its products alongside integration with Microsoft's HoloLens.

Simulated communications specialists, ASTi, is using the I/ITSEC 2021 conference and exhibition in Orlando on 29 November-3 December to provide a live demonstration of its SERA and Voisus Solo integrated with a T-6A VR flight training device.

SERA will generate a simulated ATC environment at the US event, while Voisus Solo provides real-time communications between the student and instructor.

The company says that ‘SERA provides an evolutionary leap in immersion, cognitive loading, and automated scoring for pilot trainees while reducing or even eliminating the need for human role-players’.

There is no doubt that many students find the cognitive load of real-time ATC chatter extremely disarming when tasking to the skies for the first time and so SERA can prepare them for this experience on the ground.

Voisus Solo has proved to be very popular with simulation systems integrators and was selected earlier this year by Ferranti Technologies for use on Joint Fires Synthetic Training (JFST) devices for the British Army. JFST is set to be deployed to 19 locations across the UK and will be used by the British Army, RAF and RN.

In other ASTi news, the company continues its relationship with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and both are demonstrating new augmented reality (AR) capabilities at the event. The demonstration will show how ASTi’s Earshot and Voisus Solo can integrate with Microsoft HoloLens and HPE processors to provide a personal simulation environment for the individual.

According to ASTi, the company has a number of new product launches planned for 2022. Debuts are planned for the Voisus Client, which includes an updated GUI and all-new chat functionality. Plans are also underway to integrate its Flex Client product into the Voisus product suite.
