Immersive Display Solutions Inc. (IDSI) is proud to be able to supply a range of display solutions specifically designed for immersive Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) training. Our JTAC display solutions include partial domes, 360° domes, cylindrical and complex curved display solutions; each able to be used in a range of JTAC and Joint Fires applications. Our displays offer an integrated solution designed to support Joint Terminal Attack Control (JTAC) and Joint Fires training for JTACs, JFOs, FOs, and FACs, giving them the ability to conduct: fixed-wing and rotary-wing close air support missions, close air support using fast jet aircraft, and AC130 gunship call for fire. These elements, coupled with the supported indirect fire assets provided by the environment generator or SAF, allow trainees to conduct: procedural training, close air support planning, coordination and de-confliction of aircraft, suppression of enemy air defense, marking of targets, and the simultaneous attacks on targets using both fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft as well as indirect fire assets including mortars and artillery.
For more advanced close air support training, an immersive desktop station can be added to the training system as a low cost flight simulator to allow an individual to pilot either a fixed-wing or rotary-wing virtual aircraft. Using this pilot-in-the-loop, a ground based JTAC, JFO, FO, or FAC can coordinate directly with the pilot and work to talk the pilot on to ground-based targets, just as they would in the real world.
IDSI’s JTAC immersive dome solutions are a key component of numerous programs that have been accredited by the Joint Staff for Type 1, 2, and 3 day/night, and laser controls. This accreditation, which allows JTACs to replace live controls, is vital for JTACs to maintain certification and currency.
IDSI has more than 45 years of experience in the design of visual display systems for simulation and training, as well as an additional 40 years of combined SME experience in JTAC and Joint Fires tactics, techniques and procedures. The combined in-house expertise provides an understanding of the requirements for both.
