I/ITSEC 2018: Elbit Systems Showcases Advanced Training & Simulation Solutions for Air and Land Applications

14 November 2018

Elbit Systems will demonstrate a variety of operational training and simulation solutions for both air and land applications at the upcoming I/ITSEC exhibition (booth #2000), set to take place in Orlando, Florida. The company’s line up will reflect its “Train as you Fight” concepts with training solutions that enhance operational capabilities and readiness while reducing costs.

For a complete media kit:

Mission Training Centers (MTC) for Airborne and Land Platforms:

Operational with the Israeli Air Force, SkyBreakerTM MTC (presented in multimedia) is a networked multi-cockpit, mission oriented training center that provides realistic simulated battlefield training using all aircraft systems and mission scenarios to enhance all levels of individual pilot and squadron level training.

The Land MTC (presented in multimedia) provides robust tactical and operational training, offering complete mission rehearsals across varying combat scenarios for the entire brigade, with training tools based on advanced computer generated scenarios, in a fully integrated military setting. Operational with an undisclosed customer, Land MTC is based on simulations of various land platforms and includes the most accurate weapons and command and control systems displayed in advanced artificial intelligence, depicting scenarios that include thousands of entities created and changed according to operational needs.

Airborne and Land Embedded Training:

Targo™ and EVA™- Embedded Virtual Avionics (EVA) is a suite designed to shorten the training gap between trainer and modern fighter aircraft. Allowing the trainees to operate advanced systems, such as virtual Radar, Optical sensors and Electronic Warfare systems, as well as virtual Air-to-Air and Air-to-Ground weapons, EVA transforms the aircraft into a virtual advanced fighter, while maintaining the hourly training costs of a trainer. The Targo™ Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) system enables pilots to enhance their training using their personal helmets.

ARTIST™ (presented in multimedia and mockup) is Elbit Systems’ patented, embedded live and virtual training suite for tanks and AFVs commander and gunners of combat platforms, forward observers and any other sensor operators. The system enhances training effectiveness, saves ammunition costs, reducing logistic effort of two-sided exercises while increasing the trainees’ safety.

ARTIST combines Live, Embedded and Augmented reality technologies to provide an advanced and effective training system that features terrain analysis, communication, data-link and control, most suited for crew and formation levels.

Live Training:

The Live Combat Training System (LCTS) is a fully integrated training system which includes laser suites for dismounted infantry and armored vehicles, independent broadband communication and control center capabilities. The system enables efficient live training of army, police and special units in various anti-terror scenarios in urban areas. Scalable for thousands of concurrent trainees, LCTS supports a wide range of simulated weapons, including personal weaponry, guns, hand grenades, anti-tanks missiles, mortars, artillery and mines, as well as chemical events.
