Simulyze Inc., a provider of operational intelligence (OI) technology and applications, has deployed its Mission Insight OI application in support of NASA’s technical capability level 1 testing of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
On April 19, Simulyze directly supported operations at two of six UAS test sites and provided simulated flights. According to the company, Mission Insight integrates all aspects of multiple flight operations into a single interface.
Mission Insight is a packaged, commercial off-the-shelf application that processes and analyzes large streams of data from disparate sources in real time. Built on Simulyze’s proprietary OI platform, it provides UAS operators with a common operating picture in a customized graphical interface.
NASA and operators from the six UAS test sites across the country flew 22 drones simultaneously during a three-hour test to assess line-of-sight, rural operations of NASA’s UAS traffic management (UTM) research platform.
The operators at test sites in Fairbanks, Alaska, and Grand Forks, N.D., used Mission Insight as a workflow tool to submit flight plans, monitor aircraft status and telemetry, activate flights, and transmit aircraft position data to the UTM research platform – all from a single, Web-based application.
