Rockwell Collins will supply and install eight customized domes and 11 desktop trainer simulation solutions for the Australian Army and Air Force Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC) and Joint Forward Observer (JFO) communities.

The JTAC/JFO simulators were built using Rockwell technologies and by teaming with Australian companies Virtual Simulation Systems (VSS) and Titan IM Pty on core components.

“The JTAC/JFO simulators coupled with the Rockwell Collins FireStorm™ targeting solution provide a true train-as-you-fight and fight-as-you-train experience for the users,” said Jim Walker, vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific for Rockwell Collins. “This scalable solution allows students to transition from a desktop environment to high fidelity visual realism in a fully immersive environment in the dome systems.”

The key benefits of the Rockwell Collins solution include the ability to conduct JTAC and JFO missions true to the ADF processes within a highly immersive environment coupled with form, fit and function military equipment that provide real-time tracking and evaluation of trainees by instructors.

This fusion of industry leading technologies will be installed in seven locations across Australia over the next 24 months.
