Immersive training system in a realistic virtual environment.

Fortion® SIMFAC

Virtual environment for FAC-JTAC

Fortion® SIMFAC provides sensors, communications and weapons simulations within an immersive weather, realistic terrain and complex human and tactical scenarios.

Fortion SIMFAC provides the bridge between the classroom and the expensive logistics of live training and is suitable for various TTPs (Tactics, Techniques and Procedures): Call For Fire (CFF), Naval GunFire Support (NGFS), Close Combat Attack (CCA) and Close Air Support (CAS).

Accredited by NATO, it provides six live controls out of the twelve required to maintain the Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) qualification.

Fortion SIMFAC training system is based on virtual simulation: equipped with a 4m diameter hemispheric screen (180° field-of-view), replicas of real equipment (laser range finder binoculars, radio push-to-talk, laser target designator, IZLID infrared pointer, full motion video…) and a head-mounted display (providing a 360° immersion).

The virtual environment software provides a realistic and varied synthetic environment (terrain, weather, allied forces, and enemy forces, urban, Northern Europe, desert, rainforest…). It allows the interoperation within NATO nations and training standardisation by sharing databases and scenarios. It has been accredited by NATO since 2013 for CAS type I, II, III night & laser.

The system has a very small logistics footprint and can be deployed in basic infrastructures as simple as classrooms. Connected to a simulation federation, SIMFAC allows training with legacy simulations, semi-automated forces, tactical operation centre and any DIS-HLA compatible simulator.
