Simlat has delivered a full crew solution for UAS training and simulation to Drexel University. As part of Drexel's membership in the FAA UAS Center of Excellence, the Alliance for System Safety of UAS through Research Excellence (ASSURE), the University has been utilizing Simlat's C-STAR system to study human factors in UAS operation.
The delivered C-STAR system consists of Simlat's Performance Analysis & Evaluation module (PANEL) to support this research. Simlat PANEL collects and processes simulation data to produce comprehensive reports of trainees' performance in various tasks, malfunctions, and missions throughout a training session.
"This study has been one of the early attempts in the UAS training to develop advanced performance assesment technologies as well as personalized and adaptive training methods," said Kurtulus Izzetoglu, PhD, an associate research professor in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems who is one of the Drexel's institutional lead for the FAA ASSURE COE. The Drexel team hosts two of Simlat's C-STAR systems to use as a UAS training simulator platform for their research.
