33 MetaVR VRSG licenses were recently purchased to support the Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) Virtual Trainer Dome simulator at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.

The portable JTAC Virtual Trainer Dome is also covered by the licensing agreement, allowing large scale simulated battle training to take place between both systems.

The JTAC simulators are fully interoperable with the A-10 Full Mission Trainers and the Multiple Unified Simulation Environment (MUSE)/Air Force Synthetic Environment For Reconnaissance And Surveillance (AFSERS) program, which also use MetaVR real-time 3D visualisation software.

The JTC TRS will connect to distributed mission operations networks to enable geographically separated high-fidelity close air support platforms and JTAC and CCT teams to train together. Additionally, the JTC TRS will enable operators to conduct Joint Close Air Support (JCAS) training and mission rehearsal using tailored, dynamic scenarios that are relevant to mission tasking.
