North American Surveillance Systems, (NASS) is expanding its capabilities with new simulator training designed specifically for the world’s top-selling ISR cameras.
NASS has now added this very specialized training for pilots and operators to maximize their skills with the FLIR Star Safire and L-3 WESCAM MX Series EO/IR sensor systems, according to company officials.
“The simulator provides pilots and operators with realistic EO/IR experience before beginning instruction in the aircraft and can also supplement aircraft training. They can train in basic ALE, Counter-Sniper, Counter-IED, SAR, VIP Protection scenarios,” said Richard McCourt, NASS President.
The NASS simulator will enable pilots and operators to “train to proficiency,” he said.
“This means that each student can receive the amount of instruction necessary to become proficient with the system on the ground, saving costly flight time. The simulator training supplements the flight training,” he said. “This translates to a more productive airborne mission.”
The system is deployable, facilitating instruction at clients’ locations worldwide as well as at NASS’ hangar and operations facility located at the Deland Municipal Airport just north of Orlando, Florida.
