PLEXSYS has provided the Advanced Simulation Combat Operations Trainer (ASCOT) 7 to Air Warfare Centre’s – Distributed Training Centre (AWC-DTC) at RAAF Base Williamtown.
The AWC-DTC provides integration for force-level training, test and experimentation, and together with the Joint Collective Training Branch of Headquarters Joint Operations Command, the connectivity to enable distributed mission training in the synthetic environment.
Simulator sites across the RAAF are networked using the Defence Training and Experimentation Network (DTEN). The AWC-DTC enables exercise scenario development, exercise control, blue force augmentation, and credible red force injects for Australian and Coalition training.
Provided to the AWC-DTC by PLEXSYS Australia, the Advanced Simulation Combat Operations Trainer (ASCOT) 7 enables 'cutting-edge' scenario generation with 'contemporary, realistic, constructive forces'.
“PLEXSYS Australia was founded with a desire to create a defence company which, simply put, did things differently. We have been working with the customer to implement improvements in our systems for a few years, and we are excited that the ‘end game’ will see our systems contributing to the AWC-DTC training system,” Robert Miller, Director PLEXSYS Australia, said.
“Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) activities allow the RAAF to integrate and exercise advanced capabilities and tactics in a safe and secure environment without the necessity and cost of military members being airborne. ASCOT 7’s state-of-the-art user interface, modular, and scalable environment generation capabilities are fantastic features to ensure the Warfighter is trained and ready.”
ASCOT 7 is a Computer-Generated Forces (CGF) platform for use in robust M&S environments.
