ASTi Integrates Simulated Environment for Realistic (SERA) ATC at Lockheed Martin Innovation Demonstration Center

10th Dec 2022

One of the most recent destinations for ASTi’s Simulated Environment for Realistic ATC (SERA®) product is Lockheed Martin’s Innovation Demonstration Center (IDC) located in Orlando, FL. The IDC showcases advanced military simulation, training and logistics capabilities and hosts over 800 technology demos annually.

SERA integrates directly with multiple networked Prepar3D® visual simulation systems, one of which simulates the control tower at Pueblo Memorial Airport in Colorado. Featuring a panoramic control tower view, this scenario demonstrates simulation capabilities for initial pilot training. SERA augments this system by creating synthetic, artificially intelligent aircraft and controllers to populate the airport’s flight line, gates, taxiways, runways and tower. SERA’s generated fixed- and rotary-wing entities are seen “out-the-window” from the tower and multiple other Prepar3D points of view moving and acting in concert in a distributed simulation environment.

SERA doesn’t just enhance the view from the tower; spectators hear all the radio traffic among aircraft entities and ground, tower, clearance and center controllers. SERA creates the entire communications environment using standard International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) calls and responses for a highly realistic reproduction of a busy airport…any airport.

Prior to fielding, ASTi hosted Lockheed Martin engineers at its Herndon, VA facility for SERA training. ASTi engineers subsequently visited the IDC for on-site integration support, which they completed in just one day.
