Drexel University to Use Simlat C-STAR Simulation System in ASSURE Human Factors Research

Simlat delivered a C-STAR simulation lab for human factors research to Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, core member of the FAA UAS Center of exellence

PHILADELPHIA, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Simlat delivered a Full Crew solution for UAS training and simulation to Drexel University. As part of Drexel's membership in the FAA UAS Center of Excellence, the Alliance for System Safety of UAS through Research Excellence (ASSURE), the university has been utilizing Simlat's C-STAR system to study human factors in UAS operation.

The delivered C-STAR system consists of Simlat's Performance Analysis & Evaluation module (PANEL) to support this research. Simlat PANEL collects and processes simulation data to produce comprehensive reports of trainees' performance in various tasks, malfunctions, and missions throughout a training session.

During November 2017 the Drexel's CONQUER Collaborative (http://drexel.edu/conquer/)  performed an experiment that focused on monitoring performance of the UAS payload operator during training by a wearable brain monitoring technology, namely functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). In this experiment, subjects with no previous experience with UAS were tasked with sensor and payload operation, requiring skills such as systematic approach, situational awareness and spatial orientation. Performance was measured using an fNIRS system and Simlat's PANEL. The experiment demonstrated increased proficiency and reduced cognitive effort as subjects gained more experience.

"This study has been one of the early attempts in the UAS training to develop advanced performance assessment technologies as well as personalized and adaptive training methods," said Kurtulus Izzetoglu, PhD, an associate research professor in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems who is one of the Drexel's institutional lead for the FAA ASSURE COE.  The Drexel team hosts two of SIMLAT's C-STAR systems to use as a UAS training simulator platform for their research. 'We are very grateful and appreciative of Simlat's support and close collaboration on our research,' Izzetoglu said.

You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”
