MetaVR to assist USAF Reaper training

1st May 2020 - 12:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The USAF Joint Systems Integration Lab (JSIL) has placed an order for an additional 171 MetaVR Virtual Reality Scene Generator (VRSG) licences for the MALET-JSIL Aircrew Trainer (MJAT).

The VRSG is combined with US government off-the-shelf software to create a mock Ground Control Station (GCS) used to train pilots in operating the General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper UAS.

At least 56 units of the MJAT have been deployed a various USAF sites since 2016 for classroom familiarisation training.

VRSG simulates the GCS camera payload using real-time HD-quality H.264 video with KLV metadata. This software is used in the field enabling operators to gain confidence and familiarity with the control of the MQ-9 Reaper.
