ST Engineering Antycip has played a key role in customising and delivering the MAK ONE suite of simulation and visualisation software to Boeing Defence UK for delivery of the Royal Air Force’s (RAF) Gladiator programme.

A global delivery team including ST Engineering Antycip (Europe), MAK Technologies (US), CogSim Technologies (Canada) and RTDynamics (Germany), among other partners, provided key support to Boeing Defence UK. Boeing Defence UK was awarded the contract to design, develop and build the Core Systems and Services (GCS&S) element of Gladiator in 2019.

To help bring Gladiator to life, the ST Engineering Antycip-led team provided products, training and support, including COTS and customised enhancements, safeguarding future capabilities to be added into the system.

The Gladiator distributed service delivers a synthetic environment for collective multi-domain operational training. Powered by MAK Technologies’ MAK ONE – a suite of modelling and simulation applications – third-party plug-ins included a simulation suite of Tactical Data Link products from CogSim Technologies and RTDynamics’ high-fidelity flight and electronic warfare models.

Visitors to the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition in London from 12-15 September will have the opportunity to experience Gladiator. The RAF will host a demonstration of the system for DSEI delegates.
