With more than 25 years of experience, Stéphane Roy is an accomplished Modeling and Simulation engineer with a strong expertise in flight simulation and avionics systems.
Since 1991, following his graduation from École Polytechnique de Montréal as an Electrical Engineer, Stéphane has worked for multiple simulation industry leaders such as CAE, Virtual Prototypes and Esterline CMC Electronics.
In 2007, Stéphane was nominated for “Le prix de l’innovation de l’Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec” for the design and development of the first avionics systems simulation to be accepted by Transport Canada as an alternative to actual flight tests in Dynamic Test Bed applications for FMS certification.
Following his passion for aircrafts and “everything that flies” – especially drones – Stéphane founded Roy Aircraft & Avionic Simulation in 2009 to develop VENOM, an open concept UAV trainer for the civilian and military markets. While at RAAS, Stéphane also contributed to the development of the aircraft simulator and avionics test bed for the AVIC AG600 iron bird “the world biggest water bomber aircraft”.
In 2015, Stéphane joined Presagis where he now oversees the strategic direction of all platform and sensor simulation products, including the HELI CRAFT and UAV CRAFT customizable simulators.
