SIMNET for Academic and Research Institutions

Drone Design and Simulation

SIMNET is a comprehensive online platform designed to enhance UAS education and research activities at academic institutions. It serves as an invaluable educational tool in teaching UAS-related courses, effectively preparing students for careers in the rapidly evolving UAS industry. The SIMNET Simulator product offers simulated experience in operating UAS systems, eliminating the risks and costs associated with physical equipment. Meanwhile, the SIMNET Designer product allows students to learn basic to advanced topics in aerospace engineering and design methods.

SIMNET is also an invaluable asset for research and development, offering a realistic, safe environment for testing and experimenting with UAS technologies. This aids researchers in exploring new concepts, algorithms, and applications in UAS. The platform is ideal for studying UAV airframe performance across various models like multicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, and VTOLs, as well as for developing UAS flight control systems.

SIMNET for UAS Training Providers

SIMNET for UAS Training Providers

SIMNET offers a comprehensive and versatile platform designed to enhance the quality and efficiency of UAS training programs. The platform features high-fidelity, brand-specific flight simulation models and realistic 3D terrains, ensuring trainees receive a realistic and immersive learning experience.

While the SIMNET Simulator product offers a free-flight simulator option, SIMNET Academy provides a more comprehensive training platform that integrates a Learning Management System (LMS) to deliver theoretical lessons, in conjunction with practical simulated lessons. Offering a blend of traditional classroom and remote learning options, SIMNET Academy accommodates both instructor-led and self-paced learning styles.

SIMNET for UAS Service Providers

SIMNET for UAS Service Providers

SIMNET is a vital tool for UAS service providers, streamlining pilot training and supporting day-to-day operations. It enables providers to standardize training on specific UAS platforms, flight control systems, operational workflows, and various flight environments. SIMNET’s continuous training modules help pilots maintain proficiency and stay current with evolving technologies and regulations.

Beyond training, SIMNET is instrumental in operational planning, especially for complex or high-risk missions requiring government approvals. It allows for detailed planning and rehearsal of specific missions, using precise simulations of the UAS and flight locations. This preparation is crucial for conducting challenging missions like Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) flights or operations with high-cost UAS systems.

SIMNET for UAS Manufacturers
