The Secure Live Virtual Constructive, Advanced Training Environment (SLATE) program of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory's (AFRL) Warfighter Readiness Research Division 711th Human Performance Wing (711HPW/RHA) at Wright Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) is using some of its 24 newly acquired MetaVR Virtual Reality Scene Generator (VRSG) real-time 3D rendering licenses to simulate F-16 aircraft.

While combining synthetic and real-world air combat training, SLATE has demonstrated an LVC training capability that will enable pilots to train as they fight against realistic threats while in a secure, high-fidelity environment.
