As the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and system integrator for the Shadow® unmanned aircraft system (UAS), AAI is uniquely positioned to apply its proven training capabilities in support of system training needs.
The Shadow Training Aids, Devices, Simulators, and Simulations (TADSS) high-fidelity suite is designed to provide time- and cost-efficient individual, crew, and collective training. It supports skill development for Shadow air vehicle and mission payload operators, launch and recovery personnel, and mission commanders.
Our TADSS suite includes an instructor operator station, two ground control station training stations, launch and recovery computer-based training, a staff/leader role-player station, and launcher and air vehicle part-task trainers.
The Shadow crew trainer interactive multimedia instruction (IMI) module provides students crew skills training on how to successfully conduct pre-launch operations checks. The IMI is used by a launch operator to progress through the pre-operations checks and call-and-response communications with the air vehicle operator and mission payload operator in order to successfully prepare the UAS for launch. The IMI is fully compliant with the U.S. Army operations checklist.
Our system is supported by Web-hosted IMI that allows students to train anywhere, anytime. It is a PC-based system through which students can conduct activities such as mission planning, pre-flight inspection, engine start and systems checks, emergency procedures, tactical flight mission operations, target observation, route reconnaissance, target handover, zone and area reconnaissance, and calls for fire.
