Titan IM I/ITSEC 2016 Newsletter
Calytrix and Leidos team up for I/ITSEC 2016
A recipe for IITSEC: Take one Blackhawk simulator, add a minigun and cargo hoist for fun, and execute an urban operation while taking fire from a real ZPU-4 Russian Anti-Aircraft system converted into a simulator. All running in multiple instances of Titan Vanguard between two booths on the I/ITSEC show floor.
Calytrix is pleased to join up with Leidos to support this integrated demonstration. Real integration - more than Powerpoint deep. Join Calytrix (Booth #1363) and Leidos (Booth #2324) and get ready to take the controls of the Blackhawk, minigun or ZPU.
Austria Selects LVC Game Enterprise License
The Austrian MoD has procured an Enterprise License of Calytrix's LVC-Game for SBPro to provide DIS/HLA interoperability for all its Army Combat Training Centres, including the development of a point to point capability to bridge different sites.
Mr Ulf Krahn, Calytrix European Representative said, "This new integration capability will greatly improve the realism of training at the various Austrian Army Combat Training Centres. It also allows the SBPro training managers to integrate the simulation radio degradation effects across and between Centres using the already widely deployed CNR-Pro and CNR-Effects radio communications systems and to connect to other systems such as Titan Vanguard and BMS-systems."
Upgrades for Coalition Virtual Flag
In collaboration with CAE Australia, Virtual Simulation Systems (VSS) and TitanIM Pty Ltd, Calytrix provided a number of services in support of the Royal Australian Air Force's (RAAF) Coalition Virtual Flag 2016 exercise.
Coalition Virtual Flag is hosted by the US Air Force and combines live and virtual assets utilising aircrew from the US, UK, Australia and Canada. During this exercise the C-130J Full-Flight Mission Simulator at RAAF Base Richmond was networked into the exercise alongside live air assets in the US.
From 15-19 August 2016, No 285 Squadron (285SQN) participated in Coalition Virtual Flag 16 (CVF 16), an online training exercise coordinated by the United States Air Force that links together military flight simulators and other crew training devices from around the globe. Participating for the second year running, 285SQN linked its C-130J Hercules Full-Flight Mission Simulator with the Titan Vanguard-powered Tactical Airlift Crew Trainer (TACT) to fly a virtual Hercules in the exercise. Simulated aircraft in Coalition Virtual Flag will interact with real aircraft flying in Exercise Red Flag from Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, for true Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) training. Under Air Force's Plan Jericho, the experience of Coalition Virtual Flag will help inform how Air Force conducts LVC training in the future.
Calytrix Supports Operation Virtual Pacific
At the recent Simulation Congress held in Melbourne Australia, Calytrix took the leading role in delivering the annual Distributed Mission Training (DMT) integrated demonstration. Delivering exercise design, network infrastructure and the core synthetic backbone, Calytrix populated the exercise through
Delivering exercise design, network infrastructure and the core synthetic backbone, Calytrix leveraged Titan Vanguard to drive the background exercise battlespace while supporting 14+ vendors through highlighted vignettes. These vignettes linked training systems running both on the show floor, and in one case, across the globe with Rockwell Collins demonstrating their JTAC training system using an F/A-18 Sim flown live in Ceder Rapids, with simulation and video feeds streamed in over the web.
TitanIM delivered the climactic vignette of the exercise - a mission to recapture an overtaken airport, with Vanguard also integrating with the Australian Army's Battle Management System (via Elbit Systems) to provide the background synthetic exercise traffic persisting throughout the entire show.
Third Titan EAP - Frederiksberg Palace
A venue fit for a king - literally. 300 year old Frederiksberg Palance in Copenhagen is the former summer house of the Danish King. For a week in November it was the venue of the third and heavily oversubscribed Titan Vanguard Early Access Program (EAP) event.
With flags flying for all attendees, Calytrix welcomed participants from Austria, The Netherlands, France, Denmark, Germany, Spain, UK and the USA.
Hosted with out deepest thanks by the Royal Danish Military Academy, participants received a three day hands-on introduction to Vanguard, covering scenario construction, execution, terrain development and all the requirements needed to deploy future capabilities into training.
Bagira and Calytrix to deliver advanced radio capabilities
Calytrix is pleased to announce a partnership with Bagira Systems Ltd to deliver a classroom of 70+ students with advanced audio capabilities to support their simulated battle systems training.
New features include auto-connect and configuration for CNR Sidenote (no more hunting for USB devices); CNR-Sim software can now trigger hardware PTT on CNR Sidenote; updates to CNR-Monitor allows the remote configure of duplex modes, VOX sensitivity and linger times; as well as the development of a new controller station just for Bagira to help manage their classrooms need via the standard CNR API.
The project will start to see CNR systems rolling out in early 2017.
MH-60R Rear Cabin Trainer
In conjunction with CAE, the US Navy and the Australian Navy, Titan has delivered an exceptional training capability for the fleet of MH-60R helicopters. Including high fidelity VR gunnery with both GAU-21 and M240 weapons, full cabin operations, external loads and extensive SAR/CSAR winching capability, the RCT runs completely on the Titan engine and is now in active service.
Delivering Full JTAC Capability - In Service Now!
Titan Vanguard is the engine behind a growing number of JTAC simulator installations. With extensive flight modelling capabilities, high-fidelity ballistics and unlimited view distances, Titan is the perfect choice for JTAC simulation. Solutions have been fielded on both laptop-based systems and up to 360 degree domes with 16 channels and multiple simulated devices. Titan seamlessly performs Fixed Wing, Rotary Wing, and Call For Fire capabilities simultaneously over any distance. Titan IM has also forged a strong partnership with Rockwell Collins, who is using their extensive real-world experience of both digital and non-digital CAS and fire support systems to deliver JTAC training worldwide.
