Australia selects Applied Virtual Simulation for Common Simulation Software
The Australian Defence Force has contracted Applied Virtual Simulation to deliver a suite of common simulation software (CSS) and associated technologies. The contract is valued at A$17.9 million.
The project, Land Simulation Core 2.0 Tranche 1, will provide the army with a suite of CSS for use by future simulators and in simulation-based combined-arms training within an integrated virtual environment.
Land Simulation Core 2.0 will ensure new land combat platforms and training systems are able to interoperate to enable combined-arms training effects by providing a suite of CSS and associated applications to provide a baseline for simulation-based training systems.
AVS Director Martin Carr described the company’s approach as ‘selecting the best applications available from around the world, including US-based MAK Technologies and UK-based SimCentric’.
In addition to delivering the software applications, AVS will be creating hundreds of 3D models and mapping thousands of square kilometres of real-world terrain into the simulation, allowing soldiers to train together regardless of location.
