Maximum training realism results from incorporating intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) data into synthetic environments. Veraxx’s ISR training environments are fully immersive, providing training scenarios that enable distributed, integrated ISR mission operations.
Integrating classified or unclassified ISR data, we construct high-fidelity training environments that maximize mission readiness. Whether through a single device or multiple networked devices, using our HLA-compliant Tactical Environment Network (TEn), our ISR training solutions allow groups of users with different roles to visualize and react to the same set of stimuli, replicating mission relevant tactical operating environments.
ISR sources include:
With Veraxx’s high-fidelity ISR environments, operators train across a variety of platforms, completing many mission-essential training tasks on the ground safely, effectively and efficiently — translating to real-world proficiency and maximum mission readiness.
Veraxx’s ISR solutions incorporate a common set of high-resolution physics-based models to maximize realism for every scenario. Sources and models are linked to mission objectives and exercises via our exclusive Common Generated Framework (CGF) Engine, empowering mission planners to easily and accurately simulate complex threats.
ADVTE provides comprehensive, integrated and networked training. Currently in use supporting Marine Corps Aviation, ADVTE, as a persistent and integrated system-of-systems solution, has the capability to network various Type/Model/Series (T/M/S) Marine Corps Aviation Training System (MC ATS) training devices located across Second (2D) and Third (3D) Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW) locations for the purposes of conducting multi-site, multi T/M/S simulated networked ISR training missions to maintain proficiency and enhance aircrew readiness.
An extension to Veraxx’s Tactical Environment network (TEn), the Aviation Distributed Virtual Training Environment (ADVTE) is a persistent, closed-loop, network-customized training solution. The system connects multiple training sites over a Government Wide Area Network utilizing encrypted network communication protocols.
ADVTE enables geographically-dispersed training systems to participate in a Virtual Training Event (VTE). When used with an operationally-tailored tactical environment, the ADVTE enables networked, multi-site training to occur across numerous ground-based training systems, enhancing operator proficiency while improving safety and reducing costs.
Together, the TEn and ADVTE enable an operational user to link all of its CONUS-based aviation training devices together in a comprehensive virtual training environment.
Design and Deployment
Both ADVTE and the TEn run on COTS hardware platforms, greatly simplifying integration on devices ranging from flight simulators to desktop PCs. The software environment is designed to operate on a standalone training device of choice or in a fully networked manner among multiple devices.
The complete, integrated system can be installed by either the customer or Veraxx. However, the implementation is usually highly-tailored to a specific set of training requirements. Veraxx is the provider of choice for initial installation, integration and desired customization.
The USMC Tactical Environment is the Veraxx designed off-the-shelf solution for synthetic combat ISR environment needs. TEn provides tactical environment capability stimulus for all weapons, sensors and countermeasures with focus on the man in the loop. Entity performance and behavior are data driven, resulting in a flexible and manageable system that can be tailored by any user based on desired ISR tactical training requirements. The TEn provides the threat system and HLA gateway that are the standards for USMC aviation training. The TEn is uniquely tailored to support both fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft. The TEn is the key component in training with air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons in a comprehensive ISR tactical training and threat environment.
SOFTAC is a version of TEn tailored specifically for special operation requirements, used for Army 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment training.
The TEn enables realistic ISR and Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) training. It is the key training component used to create immersive, authentic ISR training with air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons in a comprehensive ECM and threat environment.
Entity performance and behavior are data driven, resulting in a flexible and easily managed system that can be tailored by any user. The TEn is a rule-based system derived from the user’s operational doctrine; the rules can be easily enhanced to incorporate desired tactics and ISR characteristics.
Design and Deployment
A fully operative tactical environment, the TEn is built to run on COTS hardware platforms, including high-fidelity flight simulators and desktop PCs. This design ensures easier integration and a predictable upgrade path. The software is designed to operate on a standalone training device of choice or in a fully networked, multi-device tactical training environment.
The TEn comprises three major components: the Tactical Environment, the Network Interface and the User Interface. The comprehensive documentation set includes:
