Commercial Aviation

ASTi's audio and communication simulation systems are proven capable of generating all the environmental sound and providing the highly-complex comms environment of any training or simulation application.

ASTi systems are fielded and operate on full motion platform aircraft simulators around the world, from wide-body airline jets to business and commuter airframes, and include certifications to Level D for all leading aviation authorities.

Unlike many commercial simulators, ASTi implements a full radio simulation within the software model between the own-ship crew and instructor, allowing accurate ranging and noise effects, in addition to realistic voice modeling. Hearing a radio behave like a real radio, complete with noise and bandwidth limitations can provide a surprising boost to the perception of realism. ASTi does not stop there, providing training specific facilities such as private intercom links to each crewmember for direct contact, and the ability to monitor the audio heard by any or all crewmembers. Optionally, all crew audio may be recorded for record-replay after-action review.

Example Applications

  • FAA Level-D integrated audio
  • Automated computer based role playing
  • ATC training
  • Intelligent, automated instructor stations
  • Contextual radio traffic generation for realistic pilot training
  • Text-to-speech for ground collision avoidance (GCA)

SERA (Simulated Environment for Realistic ATC) transparently creates a dynamic, artificially intelligent environment filled with other aircraft and air traffic controllers to increase the realism of flight training, and provides a truly immersive ATC and traffic experience in the air and on the ground.

Our significant audio and sound system experience is reflected by the number of fielded ASTi systems certified at or above FAA Level C and D specs. ASTi's commercial package boasts a powerful Telestra processor providing 64 channels of up to 48kHz audio.
