Xponential 2016: AEgis Showcases Next Gen UAS and UGV Training Simulation

AEgis Technologies is showcasing Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) and Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) capabilities at booth #1209.

AEgis has deployed more than 8,200 licenses for the VAMPIRE suite of UAS simulations trainer to US Department of Defense (DoD), commercial and international customers around the world. VAMPIRE PRO, AEgis’ next generation UAS training simulation, offers a powerful set of baseline training features designed to be tailored to meet specific OEM UAS platform training requirements, including fully emulating most common operator functions for Small UAS (SUAS) and system-unique operator feedback, sensor imagery and fault conditions.

VAMPIRE is a fully embedded UAS training simulation for all operator functions and emergency procedures for family-of-systems small UAS (Aerovironment RAVEN, WASP and PUMA). Vampire runs on fielded Panasonic Toughbook and Ground Control Station with no modification to fielded hardware and software.

AEgis features rich simulation trainer systems with XPT for the Northrop Grumman Remotec ANDROS F6A and XPT for TALON. The XPT high-fidelity training system utilises state-of-the-art virtual reality simulation with game quality graphics. The full physics engine emulates complete motion and physical interaction of modeled robot, 3D models and the synthetic environment. XPT features scenario based training that can be contracted to build specific building structures and specific training environments.

The XPT high-fidelity training system utilizes state-of-the-art virtual reality simulation with game quality graphics. The full physics engine emulates complete motion and physical interaction of the modeled robot, 3D models, and the synthetic environment. It operates the virtual robot in realistic simulated environments using the same controller and interface.
