Elevating Flight Simulation with PlanetSAT Global Imagery Basemap

The Client

Flight Simulation Providers

The flight simulation industry, including renowned names Boeing, Sogitec, and Thales, is a nexus of innovation and skill. These providers collectively forge advanced training environments that mimic real-world flying experiences, serving as indispensable tools for pilot training, safety reinforcement, and innovation within civil and military aviation.

The Challenge

Transforming the Simulation Experience

The challenge for flight simulation providers goes beyond maintaining market position; it's about innovating and advancing the industry. They seek to upgrade global satellite imagery in flight simulators, not just for enhancement but to transform the experience.

The imagery must be coherent, accurate, vivid, and realistic. Providers need solutions that paint a seamless, immersive world view, enhancing user experience while meeting quality standards.

Additionally, they require data that integrate seamlessly with existing systems, ensuring flexibility for future growth. Compatibility, scalability, and ease of implementation and maintenance are essential.

Customer service is also key. The industry seeks partners who actively engage in their vision, providing ongoing support and attentiveness to specific needs.
