ROVATTS™-Based MQ-9 Simulator
The latest UAS version of ROVATTS™ provides a low-cost, flexible, PC-based (using COTS laptop or desktop computers) MQ-9 pilot/sensor operator simulation capability. The system, developed to support Air National Guard training, has direct application to R&D, T&E and other evolving UAS training programs within US military, foreign militaries, US Border Patrol, etc.
ROVATTS™-MQ-9 Simulators incorporate high fidelity aerodynamics packages (including landing/turbulence/control-delay affects), various HUDs and electro-optical/infra-red sensor displays portrayed on high-fidelity terrain scenes provided by SDS’ AAcuity® PC-IG. The systems also include operator (Pilot and Sensor Operator) control stations with fully functioning Status/Command HDDs including VITs and menu button interfaces, Tracker (map) displays, normal and emergency procedure functionality, record/playback and data-capture/analysis capabilities, and weapons employment (AGM-114 Hellfire missile and GBU-12 laser guided bomb) capabilities. Systems also have manual flight, autopilot and GPS approach capability; autopilot circular and figure-8 loiter patterns; and HMD and eye-tracker capability. Additionally, ROVATTS™-MQ-9 simulators include high-fidelity visual/IR scenes with weather, special effects and time-of-day, plus the ability to utilize OpenFlight, Paging OpenFlight, Terrapage, and GeoSource-RTB™ databases.
ROVATTS™-MQ-9 Simulators can be delivered in a number of hardware configurations including COTS Laptop versions for portability or COTS PC-based Tabletop versions, both of which preserve system functionality through use of the same high-fidelity software. Because of their modular/adaptable architecture, high-fidelity visual/sensor capabilities provided by SDS’ AAcuity® PC-IG, DIS/HLA capabilities and use of low-cost COTS PCs, ROVATTS™-MQ-9 Simulators have cost-effective R&D, T&E, Training and Mission Rehearsal applications associated with virtually any MQ-9 mission.
