Contingency Planning for the Future

Åsa Thegström, Head of Saab’s Business unit Training & Simulation. (Photo: Saab) Saab’s modular and scalable system for live, laser-based training is a complete solution for military training. The system is ready for integration of virtual and constructive simulators and today we offer blended training including virtual mortar, anti-tank weapons, small arms, UAV’s and more. Our latest innovation in the Live Training domain is our new BT 46 Mk III laser simulator system for vehicles, which provides the most realistic ballistic and precision laser simulation. The BT 46 Mk III improves motivation and anticipation through enhanced impact precision, simulated ammunition time-of-flight and tracer.

I/ITSEC, MetaVR will demonstrate with our business partners Battlespace Simulations (BSI) and Immersive Display Solutions, our Fallon Range Familiarization Solution (FRTC). This solution features a VR headset, cockpit (flight) simulator, and geospecific 3D terrain of target ranges at the Fallon Range Training Complex (FRTC). The virtual target ranges were built with 2 cm imagery captured by MetaVR’s small UAS. This solution, which visitors to our booth are welcome to fly, essentially virtualizes the existing FRTC Inflight Guide for naval aviator range familiarization and provides a significant increase in flight readiness and savings to military aviation training programs as a commercial off-the-shelf product W.

Mike Knowles, President of Cubic Global Defense. (Photo: Cubic) Regarding air combat training, Cubic is incorporating live, virtual and constructive (LVC) technologies to meet the air combat training requirements of fourth and fifth generation pilots. The 21st century training environment must provide an increase in airspace and threat density, as well as the ability for aircrew to employ their electronic warfare systems as they would in actual combat. LVC capabilities, enhance the live training environment, making it more realistic, more readily available and more affordable, enabling warfighters to “train as they fight.” Recently, Cubic completed the SLATE-ATD, a project for the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), demonstrating cutting-edge LVC technology for fighter aircraft. To meet the LVC training challenge Cubic developed enabling technologies and demonstrated the efficacy of blending virtual and constructive entities into live aircraft cockpits during Large Force Exercise (LFE) events at Nellis Air Force Base. The performance of the LVC system dramatically exceeded expectations within the project’s three-year period of performance.

Gene Colabatistto, Group President, Defence & Security, CAE. I/ITSEC) called CAE Rise, which stands for Real-time Insights and Standardized Evaluations. CAE Rise leverages the wealth of “big data” that is gathered during simulator training sessions, and is designed to provide the ability for instructors to deliver standardized training and objectively assess pilot competencies using live data. It was first introduced earlier this year to the civil aviation market and we have delivered CAE Rise to AirAsia and other airline customers to enhance and improve pilot training programs. We are now introducing this to the military market to help enhance the efficiency of pilot training, which is even more critical right now as militaries face the challenge of pilot recruitment, training and retention. We also plan to introduce CAE Rise to live training so that data gathered during live flight training sessions can be used to adapt and tailor the training being delivered.

Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) provides a comprehensive, cutting-edge technology portfolio for multi-domain LVC training. Our product line encompasses desktop training, simulation host, image generation, terrain editing and management, artificial intelligence and development tools, all integrated with each other. This leads to superior workflow, robustness, and significant savings in both integrator costs and time-to-deliver as well as reduced programme delivery risks. Earlier this year, BISim released VBS Blue IG, our high-performance, CIGI-compliant, 3D whole-earth image generator. VBS Blue IG supports the full spectrum of land, sea, and air use cases for combined arms and individual training. It is already in use for simulation projects ranging from JTAC, VR dismounted soldier training, gunnery, VR/AR part-task training, full-motion driver simulation, and flight training devices across the land, sea and air domains.

Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) is the world's largest modeling, simulation, and training conference. Companies and armed forces demonstrate the innovative lines of ready-to-use open simulation platforms, training suites, sensor products, automated terrain generation solutions and more. Some of the most innovative companies in the training & simulation Industry are present each year at I/ITSEC. 26-30 November, in Orlando, Florida, peer-reviewed paper presentations, tutorials, special events, professional workshops, a commercial exhibit hall, a serious games competition, and STEM events for teachers and secondary students will be happening. I/ITSEC is organized by the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), which promotes international and interdisciplinary cooperation within the fields of modeling and simulation, training, education, analysis, and related disciplines at this annual meeting MILITARY TECHNOLOGY #12/2018, available at I/ITSEC 2018 on booth #2613, includes the following topics (amongst many others): Improving Soldier Performance with VR and AR, GEOINT Training, SOF Simulation and Trainin, and how to getthe most out of Live Training Centres. Furthermore it features the Sixth Annual Simulation and Training Bosses Series (SATB) that conveys the thoughts and messages of the world’s defence simulation and training leaders.
