IAI Adds 3D to Training Simulators

UAS-control-stationIsrael Aerospace Industries has acquired a full independent capability for UAS payload simulation by purchasing TView, a 3D image generator for simulation and C4I applications from Tiltan Systems Engineering, an Israeli company.

According to IAI the agreement allows it to adapt the software, including the use of source code and other sources made available to IAI.

TView is a powerful 3D image generator which enables real-time, photorealistic rendering of real world environments. TView generates 3D photorealistic, sensor-based visual scenes of real-world locations with greater realism than any other solution available on the market.

The UAS training field is expanding rapidly. IAI’s various unmanned aerial systems include advanced mission trainers that allow complete and cost-effective operational training. Market forecasts indicate that synthetic (simulated) training will represent some 80% of the total training costs for UAS operators.

One of the most challenging issues is to create a realistic simulation of the external environment and targets for the various payloads and sensors carried by a UAS, especially electro-optical sensors and SAR radar systems. To answer this important need, IAI has established a UAS training directorate which provides training solutions for a variety of unmanned aerial systems, from basic training within the control station to extended high fidelity simulation training.

IAI has been awarded various local and global large scale training and simulation projects, including development of mission training and simulators for the Heron UAV and other advanced unmanned aerial systems operated by the Israel Air Force. The company also provides its customers with advanced training services through its UAS academy.
