The JTAGSS program is an ongoing research and development effort for the US Air Force to develop a capability for training the Command and Control (C2) personnel of the Theater Air Ground System (TAGS).
Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC VT)
The JTAC VT is a fully immersive simulator that supports the training of Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC) in the mission areas of Close Air Support (CAS), Suppression of Enemy Air Defense (SEAD), and Call for Fire (CFF). The simulation provides a 360-degree visual field of view, high-fidelity emulations of Battlefield Airman Operations (BAO) Toolkit equipment, real radio communications, and a high fidelity SAF simulation of both threat and asset entities. This environment encapsulates the JTAC, enabling him to perform his duties as if he were on a live training range, or deployed at a forward observation point.
Since Spring 2000, Dynamic Animation Systems has been supporting the US Fire Administration's National Fire Academy (NFA) in improving emergency responder training through the use of simulation and network technology. The first major tasks DAS undertook were to improve the infrastructure available to support network simulation development and delivery. DAS was able to achieve these improvements by migrating National Fire Academy technology from aging specialty computer systems to inexpensive and easily supported PC platforms. The cost savings realized by this strategy resulted in higher fidelity simulations with fixed development costs and lower maintenance costs.
Assured Mobility Simulator (AMS)
DAS developed and integrated the AMS for the US Army RDECOM-TARDEC, Sensor Technology Integration Team. The Sensor Technology Integration Team mission is to provide support for advanced sensor integration, on and off-route clearance, countermine systems, and modeling and simulation of wheeled and tracked vehicle systems to include all aspects of concept development, design and integration.
