LVS2 simulation training system accepted
The fire control simulation training system for the Australian Defence Force's (ADF's) Lightweight Video Sight (LVS2) system has completed site acceptance testing, Nioa announced on 10 February.
Nioa was selected in 2015 to deliver the MK47 40mm automatic lightweight grenade launcher to the ADF fitted with a Raytheon AN/PVG-1 Lightweight Video Sight (LVS2) sighting system for the Land 40 Phase 2 project.
The training system - developed by Nioa, General Dynamics and Saab Australia - provides an advanced, virtual reality training solution. According to Nioa, site acceptance testing confirmed that the system successfully met all key objectives and ADF requirements.
The advanced LVS2 provides a new level of capability for light weapon sighting systems with integrated colour video and thermal imaging.

A sequence of damaging news stories emerged about the RAF in August while the UK was left without a functioning government. While all matters deserve scrutiny, issues with the pilot training pipeline are the ones that can truly affect UK security with no effective solutions on the horizon. Instead of blaming diversity for an inadequate training intake, the enduring problems should be examined.
Along with the British Army, the Royal Air Force has lost out on the Integrated Review and the UK MoD has taken risky bets. It is in need of an honest review and ministers should accept that wrong assumptions were made.
Training of helicopter pilots and aircrew continues apace for the Australian navy and army at Nowra.
