Leonardo and ST Engineering Antycip team on next-gen digital system

In line with its corporate digital strategy, Leonardo has signed an agreement with ST Engineering Antycip, which provides virtual reality, simulation, visual displays & engineering services, to develop a customised version of an Image Generator based on the Unreal Engine, an advanced real-time 3D creation tool, provided by Epic Games.

The partnership is aimed to develop a new simulation and high-performance Image Generator concept for aircraft digital design and pilots training.

The technology approach is based on the extensive use of the digital twin concept design. This includes leveraging cutting-edge technology available in the market, complemented by Leonardo proprietary solutions, for all the components of the digital ecosystem, including gaming technology.

Through Unreal Engine, Leonardo will bring incredible real-time experiences, enabling realistic virtual environments, increasing the number of entities and complexity in the virtual scenario. The technology will integrate with all Leonardo’s training devices, as the full-flight simulators, flight training and procedural training tools and others, with an aim to reach innovative Mixed Reality and Virtual Reality solutions. Furthermore, the software will be a game changer for a set of ongoing advanced developments, like the 'wearable cockpit' in next generation combat and training aircraft.
