Altavian introduces the INTER-NOVA, a Simlat based Training & Simulation system for Nova UAS

Simlat has implemented an advanced integrated UAS Simulator to Altavian.

November 8th, 2016 – Simlat delivered an advanced UAS Simulation and Training System for the Altavian Nova UAS platform. Simlat’s Integrated Training Simulator (INTER) was customized and integrated to the Nova’s control station – FLARE. The new INTER-Nova training system is fully integrated and capable of producing sophisticated virtual training scenarios with high-fidelity visuals, realistic environments, and interactive situations.

This capability was showcased last August at the live virtual constructive (LVC) exercise in Ohio, organized by the Sinclair College National UAS Training and Certification Center. In this activity, taking place at the National Center for Medical Readiness in Fairborn, a drone was paired with a search and rescue crew on the ground to create real-time virtual simulations for other players, such as aircraft (INTER-Nova included), engaging from two locations in Dayton and one in Israel.

The INTER-Nova is also integrated to Sinclair’s UAS Simulation Lab, housed in the National UAS Training and Certification Center, that was introduced last year, in Dayton, Ohio

Altavian plans to utilize the INTER-Nova training system in the future to enrich its current training program. The Simlat INTER system is composed of an instructor station connected to a real UAS Ground Control Station (GCS) or Operator Control Unit (OCU) that Altavian instructors can use to provide real-time, in-depth virtual training for new and existing clients.

“This is the first time that Altavian has had access to professional quality simulation for training,” said Thomas Rambo, COO of Altavian. “We have a long-standing partnership with Sinclair as our National OEM Training Partner to provide the most modern and complete solution to our customers. This simulation capability is unparalleled in the commercial market, and will truly set Sinclair’s training program apart.”
