MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on recent analysis of the unmanned aerial systems (UAS) training and simulation (T&S) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Simlat Ltd. as the recipient of the 2016 Global Product Line Strategy Leadership Award. Simlat boasts the most comprehensive suite of training solutions for both military and commercial customers and offers the best UAS training performance and actionable training standards.
Simlat presents a product line that embraces the entire spectrum of UAS training phases, including ab initio, mission and type conversion as well as applications such as Mining, Utility Inspections, Agriculture, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), and many others. Unlike its main competitors that focus on training for a specific UAS platform, Simlat's simulation product line starts from UAS pilot and payload operator screening and covers different types of mission training, both platform agnostic and platform specific, which is a vital differentiator as UAS operators need to widen their skill sets in line with fleet expansion.
"Although Simlat's simulated training solutions are UAS-agnostic, each solution can be modified and customized to fit customers' requirements and operating environments," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Alix Leboulanger. "This is truly unique across the UAS training industry, where UAS T&S providers offer only a single training solution for a specific drone or application."
Significantly, Simlat's product line encompasses UAS technicity and human parameters. For example, the Simlat Performance Analysis (PANEL product) presents UAS trainees with a personalized, printed report issued in less than 5 minutes, as opposed to an hour taken by traditional after action review (AAR) systems. This near real-time feedback during training sessions helps boost trainees' learning curve and skills retention rate.
Another reason for Simlat's success is its exceptional scalability. The company is a pioneer in providing a wide range of UAS training solutions and technologies, including simulators, desktop trainers, integrated architectures, and networked training environments. Some of Simlat's best-selling products include individual training solutions with products such as Stand Alone Trainer (STAR); collective training (UAS crew) focusing on each trainee's specific role during a UAS mission with, for instance, the Simlat Full Crew STAR (C-STAR) simulator; and classroom training solutions with the ISR multi-purpose advanced class training (IMPACT).
Furthermore, the Simlat UAS T&S product line excels in leveraging technology to boost operational readiness. Through integrated/embedded mission training solutions, Simlat helps users train simultaneously with real and simulated UAS systems, thus creating more representative scenarios and immersive environments.
"Simlat is among the very few participants that harness technology to anticipate future training demand, notably with small UAS and mini-drones," noted Leboulanger. "Delivering a comprehensive suite of training solutions for small UAS is critical to make sure the systems are being used efficiently. More importantly, it is used to educate future operators on the use of remote controls and sensors, as well as the rules of airspace integration."
The Simlat product line strongly differentiates itself with its advanced features that improve the UAS training customer experience, which is especially the case with the Human Factor Lab and Screening by Performance Oriented Testing (SPOT) solution. The Human Factor Lab solution allows UAS operators and training academies to establish progressively standardized training results by platform types, missions, and systems, thereby avoiding future discrepancies and varying UAS training objectives.
For its overall success in delivering value-added services and end-to-end solutions for the UAS T&S industry, Frost & Sullivan is pleased to present Simlat with the 2016 Global Product Line Strategy Leadership Award.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a comprehensive product line that caters to the breadth of the market it serves. The award recognizes the extent to which the product line meets customer base demands and the overall impact it has in terms of customer value as well as increased market share.
