A game changer for the training and simulation industry
Meggitt Training Systems along with Simthetiq and TrianGraphics showcased true joint simulation and training capabilities at CANSEC 2017. The powerful demonstration connected virtual Armoured Fighting Vehicle, 81mm mortar and small arms trainers running in two different simulation platforms in the same correlated terrain environment.
Attendees at Canada’s annual Global Defence and Security Tradeshow were able to experience the benefits of interconnecting different training systems and technologies to unleash the full potential of collaborative training scenarios.
Using a common 3D terrain of Algeria from Simthetiq as the collaborative environment, Meggitt’s AntiTank Guided Missile (ATGM) and Remote Weapon Station (RWS) trainers (running in an Openflight terrain) together with their flagship FATS 100MIL small arms trainer (using a correlated VBS3 output) conducted tactical manoeuvres in a hostile training environment.
Simthetiq worked closely with TrianGraphics, using their VBS Exporter tool to generate a correlated VBS terrain that allows common, networked scenarios to be conducted across Meggitt’s different training systems.
Vincent Cloutier, Simthetiq CEO, stated: “The crossplatform flexibility provided was key for Meggitt who placed their trust in Simthetiq and TrianGraphics’ expertise and innovative approach to terrain generation for their key simulation product demonstrations at CANSEC.”
