Israel's BVR Systems has teamed with Sextant Avionique of France and Flight Visions of the USA to offer the Advanced Training Avionics Suite (ATAS). The system allows pilots to train on fighter-type avionics while flying low-cost trainers.

Sextant is offering ATAS on the MiG-AT trainer. The French company provides navigation/attack systems for the Russian aircraft. ATAS replicates systems on frontline aircraft, such as multifunction and head-up displays, radar and radar warning receivers. Using preprogrammed scenarios these simulate an engagement without requiring a second aircraft to act as an aggressor. The pilot fights the action against a virtual target while receiving typical cockpit cues such as radar and missile warnings.
