Sankhya, GA-ASI to collaborate on RPAS training, simulation
General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) intends to collaborate with Sankhya to explore training, simulation and related efforts in support of the SeaGuardian Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) programme for India, the company announced on 26 February.
The collaboration aims to customise RPAS crew training to comply with the relevant Indian standards. While working with Sankhya, GA-ASI expects to provide simulation and training technology in compliance with global standards and to deliver advanced training to pilots, sensor operators and maintenance crew.
Linden Blue, CEO, GA-ASI, said: ‘Our role as the world’s leading manufacturer of RPA systems, radars, electro-optic and related mission systems, provides opportunities to build long-term relationships in India, especially in the small-medium enterprise sector.
‘As part of any sale of its systems to India, GA-ASI would deliver an affordable, high-quality training platform, while adding growth momentum to the Indian defence ecosystem.’
