L3 WESCAM announced that it will introduce a new line of mission rehearsal and simulation training solutions at the Dubai Airshow, between November 12-16.
The company will feature air, ground maritime and command station at the L3 Technologies exhibit.
“Customers around the globe continue to experience a decrease in training budgets, yet are required to have continuous skill maintenance to successfully participate in complex joint-force missions,” said Jeff Miller, President of L3’s Sensor Systems business segment. “Our flexible, powerful and cost-effective line of simulation products continually refines the operational skill sets of MX-Series operators, pilots and ground forces from a safe and secure environment.”
As Miller said, these products are for L3’s MX-series operators and will allow crew members to train independently or in joint virtual teams.
“Through fully customizable and highly realistic training scenarios, crews are able to practice and evaluate missions in a fully networked virtual scenario before entering into any real-time mission environment,” said Rod Till, Vice President of Customer Service for L3 WESCAM. “This keeps mission-critical assets in the field, versus using them for dedicated training purposes, and ensures a high level of mission effectiveness at a low cost.”
Each product utilizes Virtual Battlespace 3 (VBS3) to connect users, regardless of space, to train in a single virtual space, with a rotation of shifting scenarios that can be programmed for different missions. Predefined weather conditions, terrains, aircraft, vehicles and maritime vessels can be customized to replicate the live missions.
The step for L3 is designed to keep operators and maintainers of MX-Series electro-optical and infrared systems and solutions operating at maximum potential.
