Battlespace Simulations (BSI) won an order by GB International to deliver two JTAC portable COTS simulators to the Republic of Korea (ROK) Army Special Warfare School that includes eight VRSG licenses, terrain and models.

3D terrain of the entire Korean peninsula in MetaVR's round-earth Metadesic format will be provided by a collaborative effort between the Simulator Database Repository at Kirtland Air Force Base and the Joint Close Air Support (JCAS) Section of the Joint Staff, Joint Fires J6 division.

The BSI JTAC simulators will include an Instructor Station, Student Station, communications suite—with radios, ROVER feed, Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR)—and a BSI-developed emulated Laser Target Designator to provide the ROK a JTAC training system currently in use by U.S. and NATO forces. The simulator is designed for a classroom setup or a configuration that can transition to custom ruggedized cases for use in the field. The ROK JTAC simulator will use BSI's MACE, Viper DIS radio, and Worldwide Open Street Map software, and Close Air Solutions' C-EAGR emulated DAGR software.
