Cybicom Atlas Defence (CAD), the South African integrator for naval systems and developer of modelling and simulation software, has launched a radar simulator at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition in London this week.
As Cybicom’s Ondulus Radar simulator contains no US licensed technology, the product is not subject to Washington’s export controls under International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). This means no US approval is needed for sales. Cybicom says its physics based simulator, Ondulus Radar, is able to give a highly realistic replication of the behaviour of waves generated by radar systems on vehicles and aircraft in conditions at any location.
The system could be of use in radar training, testing, and research and development, says Cybicom Director Malcolm Behrens. He says international interest in the product this week at DSEI has been high with about 30 requests for demonstrations of the system. In addition, an SA manufacturer of radar systems is keen to evaluate the system.
Ondulus is to be made available as part of the modelling and simulation suite sold by Presagis, a Canadian company for which Cybicom is an agent. Ondulus is designed to work with the Presagis VAPS XT in order to provide a realistic real time simulation experience.
In London this week Ondulus ran on the Cybicom Multi-Function Console that has been offered to the SA Navy as part of the upcoming Hotel and Biro projects for the acquisition of inshore and offshore patrol vessels and a new hydrographic vessel.
