ASTi recently received a contract award from SAIC for 27 instances of its industry-leading Simulated Environment for Realistic ATC (SERA) product. In a nutshell, SERA provides automated, simulated and AI-based air traffic control (ATC) services for military and commercial aviation training and simulation applications. SAIC will install SERA on existing MQ-9 Reaper MALET-JSIL Aircrew Trainer (MJAT) training systems. Initial integration will occur at the Joint Technology Center/Systems Integration Laboratory (JSIL), Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.

SAIC will host its new SERA instances as virtual machines running on customer-furnished hypervisors. This capability will provide MQ-9 operators with an enhanced training environment filled with other aircraft, pilots, realistic controllers and region- and mission-specific radio traffic. To keep these SERA instances aligned with changes to real-world airports and MQ-9 training procedures, this contract also includes ASTi software maintenance and support. This option provides ongoing enhancements and updates to SERA as well as custom feature requests. Finally, ASTi will also provide onsite installation and training for the newly fielded SERA instances.

SERA, ASTi’s leading simulated air traffic control environment (SATCE) system, fully complies with the latest industry requirements for SATCE solutions. This innovative technology eliminates the need for an instructor to role-play air traffic control, ensuring consistent phraseology for ATC and all other traffic radio calls.

ASTi is the leading supplier of communications, automated ATC and sound systems to the training and simulation industry. ASTi meets FAA, EASA and equivalent Level D qualifications with simulators around the world. Since 1989, ASTi has fielded over 11,000 systems at more than 800 installation sites in the U.S. and 49 other countries.
