SimiGon receives follow-on FAA contract for UAS simulation software

Contract to provide additional software licenses and services for FAA UAS R&D

SimiGon, (LSE: SIM), a global leader in modelling, simulation and training solutions, is pleased to announce that it has received a prime contract (the “Agreement”) with the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to deliver the Company’s SIMbox simulation software, SIMbox simulation development tools, and engineering services for the FAA’s Advanced Unmanned Aircraft System Research Simulator (“AURS”).

This is a follow-on order from the original contract announced in September 2017 and is worth approximately $120,000 and has been factored into management’s expectations for fiscal year 2018.

The AURS supports human factors research and safety research within the FAA’s Aerospace Human Factors Research Division. SIMbox delivers the user interface for the operators in an aircraft simulation environment as well as a central repository for all components with the embedded configuration management capability. The system development kit will be used by the FAA to modify the various Unmanned Aircraft System (“UAS”) components to conduct the relevant research activities.

SimiGon President and CEO, Ami Vizer, said: "We are very excited to continue working with the FAA to support the AURS for the US Government. This follow-on order shows the flexibility of SIMbox in supporting multiple domains, including civilian UAS aviation research, a fast growing market.”
