X-GEN® – Generic Unmanned Aerial System Trainer

CATI Training Systems has designed a High Fidelity Virtual Training and Testing System focused on supporting the unique requirements of the commercial/civil community. X–Gen incorporates the latest technology for training payload and air vehicle operators from basic procedures through full operational, location specific training and rehearsal. X–Gen is based on CATI’ proven image generator software for real-time scene rendering of the sensor views together with an open architecture design providing a programmable 6 DOF aero-model to support any desired air vehicle, controls, menus, cued symbology, and 2D map display.

X–Gen can be scaled to run on a laptop, desktop or full GCS configuration. Users can design and train on custom scenarios and add future updates. X-Gen is adaptable to suit Universities, Municipalities, Law Enforcement or any commercial organizations’ particular needs; free from data rights restrictions. X-Gen supports multiple air vehicles payloads with tunable sensor characteristics simulating any Electro Optical, Low Light TV, Infrared sensor including sensor-fusion.
