Indra launches new flight training device
Spanish simulation specialist Indra has developed a VR-based simulator aimed at both the military and commercial pilot training markets.
Known as SIMCUI, Indra claims that it can halve the time needed to train a fixed-wing, rotary-wing or RPA pilot.
The PC-based reconfigurable mobile training device features a head-mounted display. The device incorporates AI algorithms to measure pilot performance and suggest any remedial training action that might be required.
Indra stated that it has developed 18 basic flight models, ranging ‘from a Boeing 737 and the F/A-18 combat aircraft to Beechcraft and Tecnam light aircraft models and Sikorsky and Airbus civil and military helicopters, among many others’.
The company has also designed the device to train pilots of remotely operated aircraft. More specifically, SIMCUI incorporates the flight model of the Targus, an optionally manned MALE aircraft that Indra developed in partnership with the regional government in Galicia as part of the Civil UAVs Initiative.
Designed as a lower-cost option than more traditional flight simulators, SIMCUI can also be networked to provide collective mission training.
It has been a while since KAI received any orders for the T-50 jet, but a couple of deals are on the cards.
BAE Systems to support and train new joint Hawk squadron based at RAF Leeming, UK.
Ascent Flight Training provides details of the CAE Sprint flight training device now being used at RAF Valley as part of MFTS.
Collins Aerospace and Draken Europe are working together to boost the UK's live collective aviation training but Draken might have other targets in its sights.
The USAF's Joint Simulation Environment has taken another major step forwards with the award of the contract for image generators to Aechelon Technology.
