A defence prime has confirmed it will supply and install eight customised domes and 11 desktop trainer simulation solutions for the Australian Army and Air Force joint terminal attack controllers (JTAC) and joint forward observer (JFO) communities.

Vice president and managing director Asia-Pacific for Rockwell Collins Jim Walker said the company's FireStorm solution will enhance the JTAC/JFO simulators and will allow students to transition into immersive training environments.

"The JTAC/JFO simulators coupled with the Rockwell Collins FireStorm targeting solution provide a true train-as-you-fight and fight-as-you-train experience for the users," said Walker.

"This scalable solution allows students to transition from a desktop environment to high fidelity visual realism in a fully immersive environment in the dome systems."

The Rockwell Collins JTAC/JFO simulators have been built from the ground up, utilising innovative technologies from within the company and also by teaming with Australian companies Virtual Simulation Systems and TitanIM on core components for the simulators.

"We are pleased to have been part of the Rockwell Collins team in providing this world-class training capability to the Australian Defence Force," said David Lagettie, chief executive of TitanIM.

"The past four years of collaborative development with Rockwell Collins has allowed us to fuse our industry-leading technologies together in a single, focused solution for the ADF."

The new solution includes the ability to conduct JTAC and JFO missions true to the ADF processes within a highly immersive environment coupled with form, fit and function military equipment that provide real-time tracking and evaluation of trainees by instructors.

The technologies will be installed in seven locations across Australia over the next 24 months.
