Simlat Ltd., renowned for its cutting-edge UAS training solutions, and Adacel, an industry leader in Air Traffic Control (ATC) simulation and training, has recently announced a mutual collaboration. The initial collaboration will include integration of Simlat’s flagship products, the STAR/C-STAR UAS trainers, with Adacel’s Air Traffic Control in a Box (ATCiB) simulator.
Orlando, Florida, November 28, 2012 – Simlat announces collaboration with Adacel, including integration of Simlat’s STAR/C-STAR (UAS Training Systems) products with Adacel’s ATCiB simulator. This collaboration adds an automated air traffic control environment to UAS simulation, providing a more realistic and immersive training environment for the UAS operators, a most relevant issue as for the integration of unmanned aircrafts into the national airspace. The integrated solution is already being used in various projects, and will be displayed at upcoming events.

“The collaboration with Adacel was a natural move for Simlat,” says Yuval Peshin, Simlat President. “With unmanned aircrafts’ nearing integration to the national airspace, training for all players in this domain is more essential than ever. The C-STAR integration with the ATCiB is the first step toward achieving such training in a high fidelity environment for operators and controllers alike. We are proud to work with Adacel and believe that this initiative will be good for the customers of both companies”.
“The integration of Simlat’s UAS Training systems with Adacel’s automated ATC environment is an exciting extension of Adacel’s technology and will provide a significant increase in training capability for UAS operators.” says Seth Brown, Adacel CEO. “We must recognize that to safely extend UAS operations into any national airspace, UAS operators will need immersive training tools that include a realistic air traffic control simulation. Our collective solution is a natural evolution in the training environment. We are very excited to be working with Simlat on this endeavor”.
