Simlat Ltd. and Abacus EW Consultancy Ltd. announce collaboration on providing a comprehensive training solution for the rapidly growing UAV SIGINT operator market.
Abacus's training center, with its team of EW specialists and state-of-the-art facilities, will utilize Simlat's STS-Pro Stand-Alone Training System, as an integral part of its SIGINT training program.
Simlat's system, complete with a newly released COMINT feature, was demonstrated at the EW Open Day held at Abacus EW Consultancy on May 12, 2009.
“This high-fidelity special sensor simulation is part of Simlat’s comprehensive fused sensors simulation package. Available synthetic sensors include EO/IR/NVG/SAR/ELINT/COMINT. Other custom-made and more exotic sensors are in the pipeline”, says Uri Barzily, Chief System Engineer.
"The need for SIGINT training solutions is more apparent now than ever, especially in the constantly evolving UAS market," says Yuval Peshin, President, Simlat Ltd. "Paired with Abacus's extensive knowledge and experience in the EW training field, the SIGINT content addition to our cutting-edge simulation system will provide an optimal tool for UAS operator training and will provide Abacus customers with a turnkey solutions for their EW training needs".
"Simlat's SIGINT module is an exceptional addition to the Abacus arsenal," says Paul Burrows, Abacus EW Consultancy director. "The STS-Pro has proven a remarkable tool in UAS operator training. The UAV SIGINT simulation addition will no doubt become a key tool in our facilities, creating a unique operational environment and providing a training solution for many clients and trainees, novice to expert."
Simlat's UAV SIGINT simulation module will be demonstrated at the upcoming Shephard EW Conference in London (May 14-15) in the Abacus EW Consultancy booth as well is at AUVSI's Unmanned Systems North America 2009.
