I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Bigger

Bigger isn’t always better, and that’s never been more true of complex simulator configurations that consume racks of bulky servers and spares. Program managers are always looking for innovative ways to cut size, weight, and power (SWaP) without sacrificing performance.


ASTi Brings Simulation to the Tactical Edge

ASTi is excited to announce the latest evolution of our simulation capabilities: human-wearable and vehicle-mounted solutions deployable to the tactical edge.


The Flex Client:
Coming Soon to a Voisus near You

Get ready to flex those comms muscles, because the Flex Client is coming to ASTi’s Voisus product in 2022. It’s scalable, it’s fully integrated, and it includes powerful functionality like intercom and remote radio control.


SERA 2.0

Fasten your seatbelts, because SERA 2.0 is ready for takeoff. This year, ASTi made some major upgrades to SERA, including a new text-to-speech (TTS) system, Controller Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) updates, and an X-Plane plug-in.


Is It a Bird? Is It a Plane? It’s ASTi Products on T-7A Red Hawk!

ASTi has a longstanding relationship with Boeing, providing support for over 15 projects, including the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter and P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft. As a result of our success on these programs, Boeing approached ASTi to provide the aural cue and comms component for a new endeavor: the T-7A Red Hawk ground-based training system (GBTS).



Eurofighter Typhoon

ASTi provided simulated communication and aural cue products and services to the UK Ministry of Defense (MoD) Typhoon Future Synthetic Training (TFST) program. ASTi is integrating its Telestra products into 20 simulators at training facilities in England, Scotland, and Qatar. TFST engineers use Telestra’s software development toolkit to build custom simulation models and perform integration and testing with Typhoon training devices. Telestra adapts to multiple platforms, including full-mission simulators, unit-level trainers, and avionics part-task trainers.


Joint Simulation Environment (JSE)

ASTi is providing comms simulation products and technical services to the JSE program at Nellis Air Force Base (AFB) in Las Vegas, NV and Edwards AFB in Kern County, CA. ASTi products simulate voice comms, navigation aids, and electronic warfare systems, helping replicate open-air test factors for live aircraft in a controlled, indoor facility. ASTi also simulates Link 16 and Multifunction Advanced Data Link (MADL), a next-generation Low Probability of Detection/Low Probability of Interception (LPD/LPI) secure comms link among stealth aircraft.


U.S. Coast Guard MH-65E

ASTi integrated SERA into a MH-65E Cockpit Avionics Procedures Trainer at the Aviation Training Center in Mobile, AL. SERA populates the training environment with voice-enabled, virtual entities that role-play ATC. ASTi added custom phrases to speech recognition and developed automated tests that ensure SERA meets training requirements.


U.S. Air Force C-5

C-5 Aircrew Training System (ATS) Mobility Air Forces (MAF) Distributed Missions Operations (DMO) contracted ASTi to provide sound and communications for six C-5M trainers at multiple bases. ASTi’s Telestra product replaces the trainers’ sound systems with high-fidelity comms and Level-D equivalent sound effects. Telestra advances the program’s effort to make the trainers DMO-compliant, enabling connection to a centralized instructor control station.


ASTi is expanding networked, voice communications at the Surface Combat Systems Center (SCSC) in Wallops Island, VA. Since 1989, the Naval Surface Warfare Command (NSWC) has awarded ASTi 100+ contracts to modernize equipment that facilitates training across live and simulated domains. Our systems replaced outdated, tactical secure voice switches and operator consoles linking Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) facilities. For this award, ASTi is upgrading first-generation DOS products to fifth-generation Linux systems.
