Cubic Global Defense is showcasing a range of advanced air combat training systems at the Avalon 2017 Airshow and exposition in Geelong, Australia, this week. The company aims to bridge the gap between current training and next-generation live, virtual and constructive (LVC) solutions.
Prominent among the solutions being demonstrated to visitors are:
- The P5 Combat Training System (CTS/TCTS), which relays time, space, and positioning information between participating aircraft and range systems while internally recording weapon events during training sorties. This enables real-time, live monitoring and recorded mission data of air-to-air, air-to-ground and surface-to-air training scenarios for post mission analysis.
- The Bandit Board, an integrated low-cost tactical training capability that transmits the live P5 CTS display onto a kneeboard tablet of a pilot in an aggressor “Red Air” aircraft. With this innovative enhancement, “Red Air” now has a high-fidelity, real-time picture of all players in a combat training exercise, transforming a second- or third-generation aircraft into a formidable opponent.
- Secure LVC Advanced Training Solutions: As the industry System Integrator for the Air Force Research Lab’s Secure LVC Advanced Training Environment (SLATE) Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD), Cubic will support the development and demonstration of a new secure waveform with tactical aircraft and range ground stations as part of a LVC system for air.
“With six decades of experience developing realistic training systems to improve warfighting capabilities, Cubic has become a leading provider of critical technologies designed to raise human awareness and mission readiness,” said Dave Buss, president of Cubic Global Defense. “Avalon is an exciting opportunity for us to share our NextTraining strategy and we look forward to demonstrating our innovative technologies to the Australasian customers.”
