“With defense forces deploying worldwide, often with limited training facilities and resources, Meggitt has addressed the need for low power, small footprint, and agile simulation solutions for mobile environments. The result is over 2000 fielded and in-service embedded training systems and more than 10 years of qualified, proven field experience,” said Paul Romeo, Director Business Development, Meggitt Training Systems, Quebec.
The embedded training software provides simultaneous training with multiple networked embedded training systems and connects to an Instructor Operator Station (IOS) through a Distributed Integration Systems (DIS) and High Level Architecture (HLA) compliant connection. The embedded trainer allows the weapon station operator to safely practice skills and drills in a simulated environment, while providing automated performance monitoring, feedback and recording. It serves as a gunnery and weapons station trainer, or a collective crew trainer providing a range of simulation exercises and customized exercises suited for operational troop rehearsals when deployed in theatre.
In addition to the Stryker embedded training solution, Meggitt will be discussing applications in numerous weapon system solutions including:
- Main battle tank and armored fighting vehicles main armaments
- Remote Weapons Stations (RWS)
- Secondary weapon systems
- Anti-tank Guided Missile (AGTM)
- Information Surveillance Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR)
- Forward Air Controller (FAC)
- Forward Observation (FOO)
