Back in 2000, ASTi was selected to provide the simulated communications and sound modeling solution for the US Army's AVCATT-A portable, reconfigurable training suite. Seven years later, ASTi is upgrading these systems from their existing DACS/Model Builder equipment to ASTi's Telestra 4/ACE product line.
At the time of award, the AVACATT-A represented one of the most challenging sound and communications requirement sets with such features as high fidelity radio modeling, SINCGARS, data link, terrain occulting, 3D sound, record/playback, dynamic swapping of aircraft models, DIS communications, and CCTT interoperability.
With this update the AVCATT-A training suite will continue to meet these requirements and in addition, use a number of new T4/ACE features including:
This is a flagship program for ASTi, demonstrating the ability to translate complex, high fidelity DACS Model Builder based applications to our Telestra 4 ACE product suite.
ASTi Provides Integrated Comms for the JTAC Virtual Trainer
In 2002, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) selected ASTi to provide an integrated simulated radio communications system for the prototype Joint Terminal Attack Controller Virtual Trainer (JTAC VT). AFRL chose ASTi based on a proven track record of reliable and robust operation, COTS availability, ease of integration, simple turnkey operation and compatibility with the extensive network of USAF Distributed Mission Operation (DMO) simulator facilities.
Following a successful test and evaluation phase, the JTAC VT program entered the production and deployment phase, under management of the Distributed Training Oper-ations Center (DTOC) at the Iowa Air National Guard, 132nd Fighter Wing. In 2007 alone, ASTi delivered 23 JTAC VT radio systems to the DTOC. The deployed systems are networked to the DMO live-virtual-constructive (LVC) environment for use in Joint Close Air Support (JCAS) mission training and rehearsal exercises for JTAC teams.
