British Army receives JFMT system

29th January 2019 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Elbit Systems UK has delivered a mobile close air support (CAS) and joint fires simulator to the British Army, the company announced on 24 January.

In August 2018, the Joint Fires Mobile Trainer (JFMT) was successfully accredited by the UK Joint Air Land Organisation when it met all US and NATO requirements for providing 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.

The JFMT is now in active service with the Joint Terminal Attack Controllers and Fire Support Teams of the 1st Artillery Brigade.

Elbit Systems UK, together with QuantaDyn Corporation, supplied the JFMT as a complete training package, including a trainee station, an instructor/operator station and a pilot station console. Visuals are provided within a high resolution dome configuration coupled with a powerful and computer generated force and semi-autonomous force application.

The multi-spectral image generation allows the use of in-service night vision devices in combination with a range of emulated equipment, such as laser designators, radios and binoculars.

The complete training package contained within a 20ft trailer can be deployed and recovered by vehicles.
