Company Description
Aechelon Technology is the US leader in real time 3D computer graphics applications, geo-specific databases and devices employed in pilot, sensor and weapon training, mission rehearsal, command & control, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance and ground stations for the US Government, US Allied Forces and Government Prime Contractors. Aechelon Technology’s proven product line features Image and Data Generators, Data Centers, world-wide geo-specific multi-spectral databases as well as custom database large scale production, program management and integration services. With a proven program track record, we are honored to serve a diverse and demanding community in tactics training, mission rehearsal and sensor simulation.

Throughout its twenty-two-year history, the company has maintained an unparalleled track record in program deliveries for the US Marine Corps, US Navy, US Air Force, US Army, Special Operations Command, US State Department Foreign Military Sales programs and the US Coast Guard, with all excellent Past Performance Evaluations.

The company has demonstrated its capability for programs such as P-8A Poseidon, MQ-4C Triton, MQ-8 Fire Scout, AH/MH-6 Little Bird, MH-47G, MH-60M, MV-22, CH-53E/K, EA-6B, AV-8B, AH-1W, UH-1N, MH-60R, MH-60S, CH-47F, F-16, F-18 and F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, and for simulation of advanced multi-sensor pods such as WESCAM-20HD, ATFLIR, LITENING G4 and AN/ASS-44C. Furthermore, our systems provide direct stimulation of unmodified operational devices such as MINOTAUR (Multi-INt Operations Technologies And Unification Research). The systems also feature enhanced support for Degraded Visual Environments (DVE).

The Image and Data Generator products and data centers established a new standard for realistic image generation and sensor simulation using large scale multi-spectral database processing and Aechelon NexusTM centralized storage in tactical training, foreign-area familiarization, and mission rehearsal applications, now transitioning to live C4ISR1 use cases.

The company introduced a Space Resilient situational awareness architecture which allows multi-sensor live radar (SAR2 with or without GMTI3) and motion video (EO/IR) sensor fusion with interactive visualization against 3D synthetic databases. This system paves the way for GPS denied situational awareness, navigation and target acquisition; supporting use cases across the C4ISR chain and minimizing the OODA loop (Observe, Orient, Decide & Act), thus reducing human resources, overhead and emergency errors.

(1) C4ISR: Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance.
(2) SAR: Synthetic Aperture Radar.
(3) GMTI: Ground Moving Target Indicator
