SIMSART Project or how to train future pilots and UAS operators through new simulation technologies
The SIMSART project, "Highly interoperable simulator for training of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems pilots" will develop a new generation of unmanned vehicles simulators responding to the future training needs of operators of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems or Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), in line with the integration of these aircraft in non-segregated airspace.

SIMSART will allow ab-initio training, type certification and recurrent training to RPAS pilots according to the future regulations currently in development by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). CATEC participates in this initiative in a consortium led by the company Nextel Aerospace Defence and Security (NADS), also integrated by the company Unmanned Solutions (USOL) and the Dynamics Systems Research Group of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM).

Specifically, CATEC is responsible for the generation of the simulation model for rotary wing aircraft, the full development of the post of instructor, and adaptation, integration and development of specific modules of both the ground control station and the autopilot currently developing in the center.

The SIMSART project is supported by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness under the National Programme for Research Aimed at the Challenges of Society, within the National Plan for Scientific and Technical Research and Innovation 2013-2016.
