General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI) and Sankhya Infotech Limited will collaborate to explore Simulation Training and related efforts in support of the SeaGuardian Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) program for India. 

The collaboration aims to tailor RPAS crew training to comply with the relevant Indian standards, the company said in a statement.

GA-ASI anticipates working with Sankhya to provide simulation and training technology in compliance with global standards, and to deliver cutting-edge training to pilots, sensor operators, and maintenance crew.

The SeaGuardian system provides wide-area, persistent, maritime surveillance with its surface-search radar and HD-video sensor. The aircraft’s collision-avoidance system and STANAG-compliant airworthiness pedigree allow safe operation in civilian airspace and in the Indian Ocean tropical weather zone.
