27 November, 2017: Elbit Systems has recently inaugurated an interconnected, multi-cockpit Mission Training Center (MTC) for the Colombian Air Force. The MTC provides realistic simulated battlefield training using a variety of aircraft systems and mission scenarios and utilises a superior computer generated forces (CGF) solution to enable synchronised participation of friendly and enemy forces.
The Colombian Air Force MTC draws on Elbit Systems’ experience with the SkyBreaker MTC, implementing the company’s proven, cutting-edge technologies and ”Train as You Fight” concept thus enabling pilots, squadrons and ground controllers to conduct realistic, up-to-date training exercises and save actual flight hours. The MTC can be used for basic and emergency training or for advanced mission-oriented training with up to 24 trainees, training together in a “real” mission environment. The MTC covers all stages of tactical mission training including planning, rehearsal, and debriefing.
Yoram Shmuely, general manager of Elbit Systems Aerospace Division, said, “We are proud to inaugurate the MTC for the Colombian Air Force. The MTC is yet another example of Elbit Systems’ technological leadership in the Training and Simulation filed and it attests to the growing demand for all-inclusive interconnected simulation platforms that enhance the quality of training while reducing operational costs”.
