New small UAS Zephyr simulator introduced

6th September 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Little Arms Studios has developed a small UAS training simulator called Zephyr, the company announced on 1 September.

Zephyr has been developed for UAS training organisations, including universities and community colleges with UAS curriculums; and aviation schools that train professional drone pilots, public safety and disaster relief agencies; as well as enterprises with industry-specific needs and applications.

The system incorporates a learning management system that allows instructors to track trainees’ progress to ensure learning objectives are met and skills are developed. 

The simulator’s development included beta trials to allow functions and capabilities to be tested by enterprise customers and drone professionals. This has led to improved features such as an updated drone physics model, improved usability, visual updates, and expanded controller support.

Stewart VanBuren, CTO, Little Arms Studios, said: ‘Zephyr is currently far ahead of other drone pilot simulators currently on the market, and we are committed to maintaining our competitive lead over other enterprise-grade drone by working directly with aviation schools and institutions, major drone suppliers and enterprises.’
