Advanced Simulation Technology inc. (ASTi) will provide simulated communication and aural cueing products and services to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) Typhoon Future Synthetic Training (TFST) program. TFST offers diverse, simulation-based training options, including individual, team and collective training for the Typhoon aircrew.

Under contract terms, ASTi Telestra products will integrate into 20 simulators at training facilities in England, Scotland and Qatar. With Telestra's software development toolkit, TFST engineers can build custom simulation models and perform integration and testing with Typhoon training devices. Telestra software and hardware adapts to multiple platforms, including Full Mission Simulators, Unit Level Trainers and Avionics Part-Task Trainers.

Telestra fills a wide range of requirements for the TFST program, some of which include simulated radios modeling HF, VHF and UHF waveforms and propagation effects for ranging, terrain and weather conditions; after-action review; and intercoms linking cockpits, instructors, observers and debrief stations.
