Close Air Solutions is a single source for international training and simulation services in all aspects of Close Air Support and Joint Fires for JTAC, JFO, Artillery, Recce, SOF, aircrew, and military leaders. Close Air Solutions can deliver either individually or as a turnkey solution: Accreditable Simulators using professional course design methodology combined with assured expert instruction. Our immersive Close Air Support Simulator (iCASS) is the choice of UK MoD for JTAC schoolhouse training. Funded for the past 2 years by the UK Government to develop leading edge simulation products using Augmented and Virtual Reality to ensure best value for money training tools for our customers; we strive to support the next generation of Joint Fires experts. Our Hyper Real Immersion capability can be experienced live on Stand 05-A10
Until recently the only way to cost effectively train for realistic battlefield scenarios, such as contested massive combat operations, was using a simulator. Simulation allows you to transport the trainee into a realistic situation with all the considerations that are not found during peacetime live training such as: Contested, cluttered, congested, environments, and crucially the presence of non-combatants. One of the key disadvantages of traditional simulation is that it usually takes place indoors in a benign and sterile environment which can detract from immersion and training transfer. CAS are deep into a project designed to bring all the advantages of simulation into the live environment using Mixed Reality to take the simulation outside. It is called HYPER REAL IMMERSION (HRI).
At Close Air Solutions our principle concern is the use of simulation to make immersive relevant training. We have a dedicated development cell that develops missing capability or useful additions to simulation capability to help the trainer and trainee achieve the best training possible in the most efficient and value for money way. In this way Close Air Solutions develop and launch our CAS-Emulated Advanced GPS Reciever (C-EAGR) It is available now and ready to be integrated into JTAC/JFO type simulators. Available as a software plugin or a physical hand held device.
At Close Air Solutions we not only embrace simulation and high tech methods of learning and operation, we value good basic tools. For this reason we designed the CAS Rule – A Multi-Purpose CAS planning tool for JTACS.
Immersive Close Air Support Simulator (iCASS) is a dual accreditable immersive simulation system that can be tailored to the customers requirements.
