COTS tools for flight modeling, task and mission training, and UAS ground control stations make up robust solution for expanding market
Montreal, Canada – May 5, 2015 – Presagis, a leading provider of commercial modeling, simulation, and embedded software, is showcasing its suite of software solutions for unmanned aerial systems (UAS) development at the AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems 2015 conference in Atlanta, GA from May 5–7. (Visit booth 734.)
The Presagis UAS development tools are based on field-proven modeling and simulation tools that enable developers to create high-fidelity simulation applications and immersive training experiences. Together, these tools provide end-to-end support for the development of UAS programs.
As UAS use expands from military into industrial and public security sectors, UAS system designers and simulation application developers need a set of tools that can help them design, test, and train a new generation of UAS systems.
“Presagis brings a unique combination of simulation and avionics systems expertise to the UAS market” said Stephane Blondin, Head of Product Management and Marketing. “As the number of UAS platforms and commercial sensors on the market explodes, simulation offers a uniquely compelling approach to UAS development, training, and operations management. Presagis’ unique suite of integrated software tools drastically reduces the cost and complexity of developing Test Benches, Trainers, Ground Control Stations, and many other UAS-related systems.”
The Presagis UAS development tools address the key challenges of unmanned aerial systems design, operations, and training:
Real-time fixed- and rotary-wing flight dynamics
Presagis FlightSIM and HeliSIM provide the modeling tools to create any kind of UAS, with physics-based flight dynamics for true performance-based simulation without writing a single line of code.
Scenario creation and mission editing
Presagis STAGE enables developers to create and fine-tune complex simulation scenarios, and to define the behavior and interaction of thousands of entities, including crowd behaviors and simulated vehicle traffic. These scenarios can easily include secondary characters and vehicles that will behave through AI-based natural patterns of life. With native support for DIS/HLA, STAGE can be seamlessly integrated with other virtual environments and partake in large cross-organization federated simulations.
Synthetic environment modeling and simulation
Presagis Creator brings simulation-optimized 3D models of aircraft, vehicles, buildings, bridges, and more to applications; Presagis Terra Vista converts GIS and imagery data into a 3D terrain databases that combine geo-specific features and geo-typical generated environments.
Multi-Channel 3D Visualization
Presagis Vega Prime offers multiple channels, each featuring independent Fields of View (FOV) and Levels of Detail (LOD) over the same GIS and imagery data. Calendar-accurate sun illumination, ephemeris-based planet positions, and atmospheric simulation including temperature, wind, fog, clouds, rain, and snow all contribute to creating a rich simulation experience.
IR and radar sensor simulation
Presagis Vega Prime can be complemented with simulated sensor views for payload operations training, including NVG, IR, and SAR/ISAR/RBGM radar.
Presagis VAPS XT is a fully certifiable HMI development and code generation platform for building Ground Control Stations with peace of mind as airspace legislation evolves. At Unmanned Systems 2015, Presagis will be demonstrating a complete UAS training scenario for both pilot and payload operator that was developed entirely with the Presagis UAS Suite. Visit Presagis at booth 734.
In addition, NAVMAR and CAE will be demonstrating a TigerShark XP UAS Mission Trainer at the NAVMAR booth (#2757) that features Presagis’ STAGE and FlightSIM software tools that were used in the development of the simulator.
