Elbit takes simulation to the cloud
Elbit Systems is working on a common Synthetic Natural Environment (SNE) solution that will allow two air training simulators in remote locations to be linked via a secure cloud-based simulation environment.
The work leverages a project during which two different types of simulators were linked using cloud-based services. This project demonstrated the ability to link different training devices within the same synthetic environment and highlighted the utility of next generation cloud-based simulation.
The current capability allows a ‘commonality of services’ where connected trainers use common services and standard protocols to consume services from the secure cloud by designing the simulation federation environment.
In a recent demonstration, two devices located more than 50km apart were able to interact within the private cloud based synthetic environment in real time, in addition to a role player station that enabled a man in the loop. The networked simulation devices flew simultaneously to perform the components of air missions that would take place within the SkyBreaker Mission Training Centre.
Under the next phase of the development programme, the company plans to incorporate current platform cockpits at the Mission Training Centre.
