Elbit Systems completes JTAC and FST simulator delivery to British Army

Posted 24 January 2019 · Add Comment

Elbit Systems UK Ltd. as prime contractor, together with QuantaDyn Corporation, has completed delivery of a mobile Close Air Support (CAS) and Joint Fires Mobile Trainer (JFMT) to the British Army, which - built as a bespoke solution to satisfy requirement - is now in active service with the Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC) and Fire Support Teams (FST) of the 1st Artillery Brigade.



The JFMT successfully underwent accreditation by the UK Joint Air Land Organisation (JALO) in August 2018, meeting all US and NATO requirements to deliver simulated CAS training. The JFMT is accredited to simulate all controls currently allowable (types 1, 2, and 3, Full Motion Video, Rotary Wing, Night/IR, Remote Observer and Laser Target Designation).

Whilst also available for purchase as a standalone system, in this contract the JFMT is supplied as a fully serviced training package, all contained within a versatile 20ft trailer able to be deployed and recovered by vehicles within short time frames. The system comprises a trainee station, an instructor/operator station (IOS) and a pilot station console.

Visuals are provided within a high resolution dome configuration coupled with a powerful and intuitive Computer Generated Force (CGF) and Semi-Autonomous Force (SAF) application.

The Image Generation is multi-spectral allowing use of in-service Night Vision Devices in conjunction with a range of emulated equipment, such as laser designators, radios and binoculars providing trainees with a high fidelity “train as you fight” experience.

The service is managed, delivered and maintained by a highly experienced team of ex-military subject matter experts.
