Simulation

JD2E has a range of integrated simulation products with in-house software development and graphic design team for bespoke applications.
The simulators and carefully choreographed scenarios exercise the system skills but also the essential skills such as communications (inside and outside the aircraft), teamwork, human factors, crew resource management (CRM), airmanship, situational awareness and decision making.

To support our training courses, our simulator systems can be configured as:

  • Pilot(s) Virtual Reality (VR) cockpit
  • Mission Commander
  • Sensor Operators

The FCAT allows full crew ISR mission training with the pilots responsible for the flying and positioning of the aircraft whilst interacting with the mission crew.

  • Mission Commander
  • Sensor Operators

The RCAT allows the mission crew to train in ISR sorties with the instructor “flying” the aircraft and controlling the synthetic environment.  This can range from a common two-station configuration up to multi-mission aircraft type configuration with multiple sensors and operator teams working in challenging environments.

  • Radar
  • EO/IR
  • Acoustics
  • RESM
  • Electronic Warfare
  • Automated Identification System (AIS)

The standalone simulation allows operators under training to focus on a single sensor at a time.  This is essential to build a solid foundation of understanding that sensor, how to exploit it and the various methods of employment depending on mission type.

Once proficient the operator normally advances to the more challenging crew training devices such as the RCAT and FCAT above to practice airmanship, crew resource management, communications and decision making.

  • Downlink feeds from (FCAT, RCAT or instructor)
  • Link picture
  • Communications (Radios, tactical chat)

The C2 cell has real-time downlink feeds from the other simulators (e.g. FCAT or RCAT above) or instructor stations to exercise Command and Control of the battlespace.

This focuses on decision making, intelligence interpretation, planning and ISR processes.  The map-based tactical data link provides situational awareness information with the video downlink providing the tactical intelligence product.  The C2 Cell closely resembles a Combined Air Operations Centre (CAOC) and allows commanders to control their aircraft and crews using synthetic radios and MIRC chat as they would for real.  This exercises the full ISR process (TCPED) and allows multi-day campaign type exercises to be carried out.

  • Dexterity training & control familiarity
  • Emergency situations and responses
  • Tactical scenarios (IED search, suspicious person)
  • Cutting-edge Virtual Reality (VR) simulator

The Drone Simulator allows pilots and operators to gain dexterity training and become familiar with the flying controls and handling of multi-rotor, small unmanned aerial vehicles (sUAV) before moving on to the tactical scenarios such as missing persons, IED search, facility search and remote surveillance.

Drone sensors include daylight and infrared cameras and allows the instructor to trigger various emergencies such as GPS fail and propellor failure.

We cater for military and law enforcement agencies with specific requirements or mission scenarios.  Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

For customers looking to procure their own simulator we can provide turnkey solutions from understanding and refining the synthetic requirements to support the training, through to installation, testing and training on the final solution.
