Simlat looks to maritime UAS training
Simlat has introduced a newly enhanced high fidelity simulation module for maritime UAS applications.
The maritime simulation module with improved visuals includes an enhanced dynamic wave model that takes into account sea state and the weather conditions, as well as the characteristics of simulated vessels, such as length, weight, drought and center of mass.
The system is designed to train users in maritime based UAS applications such as search and rescue, security, marine life exploration, immigration and piracy surveillance.
Yoni Bar On, vice president of products at Simlat, said: ‘The enhanced maritime module is an optimal addition to Simlat’s training systems for those who train on applications at sea because it encompasses a wide variety of applications ranging from search and rescue to offshore.’
