ITEC 2017: QuantaDyn delivers JTC TRS to USAF

In January, the US Air Force awarded the Joint Terminal Control Training and Rehearsal System (JTC TRS) Low Rate Production (LRP) programme to QuantaDyn. This award was for an additional three JTC TRS devices and associated support (CLS).

The final device has now been installed bringing the total number of deployed systems to five with devices at US Air Force sites and the JTC TRS Training System Support Center (TSSC). The devices are used to train Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC).

QuantaDyn's president, Bill Dunn said that the partnership with the customer, 'is a testament to the US Air Force's confidence in QuantaDyn as the trusted provider of Joint Terminal Attack Controller training devices. JTAC personnel stationed at US military installations around the world will benefit from the fully accredited training to enhance mission combat readiness.

'This has been a programme of many “firsts"; including the first JTAC training device to be certified under the government's new Cyber Security Risk Management Framework, and the first device to be Cyber Certified under Windows 10. Additionally, we were informed by our air force customer that achieving LRP approval in a little over a year for a programme of this magnitude and complexity is unprecedented. We are very proud of our JTC TRS programme, and we are honoured to be the programme-of-record provider of JTAC training devices to the US Air Force,' he added.

QuantaDyn has also now delivered an eighth Multi-Mission Crew Trainer (MMCT). The latest device has gone to the Air National Guard Base at Schenectady, New York.

QuantaDyn developed the MMCT in conjunction with Randolph Trainer Development, for the Air National Guard C-130 units. The MMCT said the company, 'provides a cost effective means to provide enhanced pilot and co-pilot training using a high fidelity, accredited flight model and full avionics, navigation, and aircraft systems models.'

The MMCT is fully interoperable and designed for Distributed Mission Operations (DMO) training. In addition to the C-130H2 and LC-130 variants, QuantaDyn is working to complete the C-130H3 variant by late summer 2017. The device is reconfigurable, allowing a single MMCT to be capable of training H2, H3 and LC130 crews at all ANG sites.
