ASTi Maximizes Service Members' Effectiveness and Safety

ASTi systems train service members in skilled and dangerous jobs, such as USAF forward air controllers, Army infantry commanders, Marine combat pilots, and Navy fire controlmen. ASTi's core mission is to maximize the effectiveness and safety of these people.

Training and experimentation program requirements have become more and more demanding, while program resources continue to shrink. In response, ASTi enhanced its products to integrate lifelike simulation-based communications and 3D sound into LVC-Game environments. These products deliver critical cost-saving features:

  • Interactive human-machine training capabilities reduce instructor workloads and role player demands
  • Quick deployment from the box, with simple browser-based setup, command and control tools

Interactive Demos

At I/ITSEC 2013, ASTi will demonstrate its latest developments in simulation-based training enablers. You are invited to our exhibit at Booth #1149 to experience the power and adaptability of our products.

JTAC Close Air Support

Take on the role of a Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) on a virtual battlefield and interact with intelligent, synthetic entities such as A-10 pilots, UAV controllers, and ground commanders. ASTi's Construct™ constructive voice and radio environment delivers interactive training capabilities without the need for role-players. ASTi's Earshot™ 3D audio creates an immersive training experience featuring highly realistic, directionally accurate environmental battlefield sounds.

Check out the video below to learn more.

Military Air Traffic Control

Pilot an F-35 in a virtual airspace that's fully populated with synthetic aircraft and air traffic controllers that listen, act and verbally respond to your speech. This demo features a custom-tuned speech recognition model based on real-world ATC interactions, delivering a highly effective training environment that's entirely synthetic.

Games for Training: Keep Your Head in the Game

Dissatisfied with the limited capabilities and deficient interoperability of radio/voice comms and environmental audio in serious games? Check out ASTi's high-fidelity radio environment and 3D audio, which integrate seamlessly with VBS2, VBS3, Unity, Prepar3D and more.
