BAE Systems and VRAI have set out to harness the power of data to redefine fast jet pilot training.

BAE Systems and data-focused training specialist VRAI have announced their plans at IT2EC 2024 to work to leverage extended reality (ER) and AI to enhance fast jet pilot training.

The partners have integrated VRAI’s HEAT data capture technology into a deployable simulator for Hawk aircraft and have begun looking at how to implement it into a flying Hawk trainer jet, representatives told Shephard at the London-based event.
