Simlat delivers UAS simulation research lab
Simlat has delivered a UAS crew training and simulation system to Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, for research purposes, the company announced on 22 March.
The system includes a C-STAR simulation module, which enables automatic performance evaluation of UAS operators during simulation-based training and assessment; along with the Performance Analysis and Evaluation Suite (PANEL) module, which collects and processes simulation data to produce comprehensive reports of trainee's performance on various tasks, malfunctions, and missions throughout the session.
Together the systems will support human factors research for UAS operators at the university.
Mark Wiggins, director of the Macquarie University Integrated Simulation Hub, said: 'The combination of C-STAR's UAS simulation and PANEL enables us to collect highly detailed performance measures quickly and easily, across a range of different scenarios, and with operators of different capability and experience.'
