Indiana State University Collaborates with Innovator of Unique Unmanned Systems Simulator

The main objective of ISU’s partnership with simulator and developer, Corsair Engineering was to train the university students in unmanned systems program. Specially designed for college students, this simulator will be incorporated into unmanned system courses by next fall.

Indiana State partnering with unmanned systems simulator developer

The ISU simulator supports unmanned aircraft, through which the working of unmanned vehicles can be resolved.

The creation of Integrated Multi-Mission, Multi-Platform UAS Trainer (IM3PUT) simulator is the outcome of the dynamic partnership between ISU's aviation technology department and the engineering company. In the simulator, multiple unmanned aircraft are applicable for environments simulating various terrains or times of day based on sensors. Also, the simulator enables the addition of further unmanned systems, like ground and underwater unmanned vehicles.

The initial installation of simulator was implemented during the end of March. However, operation training is conducted by ISU’s director of the Center for Homeland Security and Crisis Leadership Richard Baker, and Hauser.

According to Baker and Hauser, usually unmanned systems relate to drones and military equipment. But apart from military application, it can also be implemented in agriculture and construction operation. Prior to crop cultivation, Hyperspectral imaging can be used to determine chemical or water content in that ground area.

The unmanned systems program was initiated by the Center for Unmanned Systems Outreach and Human Capital Development, which was entitled part of Unbounded Possibilities, a multi-million dollar, multi-year initiative effected through Indiana State’s efforts to cater to the needs of society and community.

According to Baker, the university intends hosting a four-year major effective by 2013 spring.
