29 November, 2017: Rockwell Collins, a leader in aviation and high-integrity solutions for commercial and military customers will supply and install eight customised domes and 11 desktop trainer simulation solutions for the Australian Army and Air Force Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC) and Joint Forward Observer (JFO) communities.
“The JTAC/JFO simulators coupled with the Rockwell Collins FireStorm targeting solution provide a true train-as-you-fight and fight-as-you-train experience for the users,” said Jim Walker, vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific for Rockwell Collins. “This scalable solution allows students to transition from a desktop environment to high fidelity visual realism in a fully immersive environment in the dome systems.”
The Rockwell Collins JTAC/JFO simulators have been built from the ground up, using ground-breaking technologies from within the company and also by collaborating with Australian companies Virtual Simulation Systems (VSS) and Titan IM Pty on core components for the simulators.
“We are pleased to have been part of the Rockwell Collins team in providing this world-class training capability to the Australian Defence Force (ADF),” said David Lagettie, CEO of Titan IM Pty Ltd. “The past four years of collaborative development with Rockwell Collins has allowed us to fuse our industry-leading technologies together in a single, focused solution for the ADF.”
