Battlespace Simulations and MetaVR Replaces Call For Fire Trainer with New Simulators

By Enterprise Technology Review | Friday, May 24, 2019

SAN ANTONIO, TX: Battlespace Simulations (BSI) announces that it has signed a contract with US military's Special Operations Terminal Attack Controller Course (SOTACC) facility to install desktop Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) simulators featuring BSI and MetaVR. The new simulators will replace the Call For Fire Trainer (CFFT) simulators, which are currently in use.

MetaVR VRSG, geospecific terrain, and extensive 3D content libraries, along with BSI's Modern Air Combat Environment (MACE) software are the key components of the Windows desktop systems.

Each station also includes a tablet running a ROVER feed of VRSG’s simulated sensor view and a communications suite with BSI’s Viper DIS Radio software to simulate PRC-117, PRC-148, PRC-152 radios. The package will be complete with the addition of new hardware, including two terrain servers loaded with MetaVR's CONUS++, Asia, and Africa terrain data sets.

VRSG provides out-the-window (OTW) views for the instructor, student, and role player stations, as well as sensor views and the view within the Ranger 47 simulated military equipment. MACE provides entity scenario generation and execution, including call for fire, 9-Line, and 5-Line interfaces as well as the virtual pilot/role player station. BSI's Viper DIS radio delivers an operationally realistic communications environment, and BSI's DIScord DIS recorder enables after-action review (AAR) and debrief.

SOTACC certifies Special Forces troops from the US Army, Air Force, and Marine Corps as qualified JTACs. Each four week JTAC qualification course includes three weeks of academic training and one week of live-fire close air support training.
