Inzpire Limited’s Mission Training Devices Division has launched a new deployable simulator for UAS (unmanned aerial system) ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) training. The CASE (Compact Agile Simulator Equipment) UAS/ISR is designed to deliver cost-effective training to the trainee at the point of need. The entire system, which runs on two NUC Skull Canyon small form computers with 2080 graphics cards, is contained within ruggedised pelicases, is easily one-person portable, and can be set up ready for training within minutes.
The system can be configured to deliver individual training or team/crew training for UAS pilots and sensor operators, as well as mission intelligence coordinators and image analysts. CASE can replicate a vast array of sensor and weapons payloads including EO/IR, radar (SAR, MTI, GMTI, DBS, ISAR), laser (LTD, LRF, Lidar) and SIGINT.
Steven Pook, Inzpire’s head of mission training devices, commented: “As a result of the disruption and challenges that the Covid-19 pandemic has presented over the past 20 months, Inzpire’s Mission Training Devices Division has recognised the ever-greater importance of synthetic training which can be delivered at the point that the customer needs it most. Our new simulators provide deployable synthetic training capability, lessening costs to the customer thanks to the reduced infrastructure, transport and subsistence costs associated with larger centrally-hosted systems.”
“Inzpire’s new Mission Training Devices are capable of deploying with units on operations or on training deployments, ensuring that currency, competency and the opportunity for mission rehearsal in a synthetic environment is maintained away from home base. Ultimately Inzpire’s new Mission Training Devices are designed to maintain and enhance the operational effectiveness of our customers’ personnel wherever they may be.”
