Arizona State University (ASU) has partnered with modeling, simulation and training provider CAE to advance research, education and training related to unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in the academic, government and private sectors.
According to ASU, CAE has donated a mission simulator for UAS, as well as licenses to simulation software from Presagis, CAE's commercial-off-the-shelf software company. The simulator and software, the university says, will facilitate student and faculty research and test the application of unmanned systems in areas including border security, food security and water management.
ASU notes that it will be the lead academic partner of CAE in joint domestic and international project pursuits. ASU aviation students will also have an opportunity to work hand in hand on real-world UAS research and training with experts from CAE and the university.
‘We are pleased to establish this relationship with Arizona State University to further advance our initiatives and capabilities related to the growing use of unmanned systems for commercial applications,’ comments Gene Colabatistto, group president, defense and security, at CAE.
