Plexsys Interface Products has received a subcontract from Aero Simulation (ASI) for the US Navy Aviation Distributed Training Center (NADTC) 2.0 programme, the company announced on 20 July.

Under the contract,  Plexsys will deliver a communications simulation system, sonomarc, into a coordinated distributed training centre that supports mission training exercises in support of Fleet Synthetic Training – Aviation.

The programme directly supports the future of live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) training for US Navy Aviation. Up to three NADTC operation centres will be delivered under this contract with locations at Naval Air Station (NAS), Oceana, Virginia, with options for NAS North Island, California and Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Iwakuni, Japan.

The contract will allow the NADTC to host secure distributed pre-mission briefing events, execute multi-mission virtual and constructive training events, record training events and playback recorded missions to the Navy’s aviation strike and maritime communities. The NADTC staff will use the navy’s continuous training environment node and secure distributed network system to connect strike and maritime virtual training centres throughout the world simultaneously.

The training centre will use sonomarc with both the Joint Semi-Automated Forces and Next Generation Threat System synthetic environment generators.

Homer Walden, senior business development manager, Plexsys, said: ‘This design comes from our extensive experience with LVC simulation and was a deciding factor in meeting the demands of the NADTC 2.0 programme. Plexsys is excited to team with ASI and BGI on this effort. Together we bring a wealth of experience in the LVC arena, ensuring success for the NADTC community.’
