Elbit Systems completes first phase of new remote simulation through cloud services
Elbit Systems has concluded the first phase of development of a new remote simulation by connecting two air training simulators through a cloud-based simulation environment using a common synthetic natural environment (SNE).
Using standard protocols, Elbit Systems can link simulators through a secure simulation cloud in order to provide simulation and information services. Different training devices can be connected within the same synthetic environment.
This project also highlighted the utility of next-generation cloud-based simulation.
Elbit Systems aerospace division general manager Yoram Shmuely said: “We will continue to invest in this next-generation training, which we see as an integral part of the training capability of the future for our customers.”
Elbit Systems’ new air training solution was developed leveraging on a research and development (R&D) project, funded by a customer.
The company further noted that its new capability enables a ‘commonality of services’ wherein connected trainers use common services and standard protocols to obtain services from the secure cloud by designing the simulation federation environment.
This capability allows two devices to interact within the private cloud-based synthetic environment in real-time besides a role player station.
