ODS systems are capable of being fielded in various configurations
Motion Cuing systems include 6-DOF full-motion platforms and 3-DOF motion seats. Visual solutions are scalable and generally range from 180 to 225 degrees field-of-view. All ODS systems are capable of being installed in a fixed-site facility or self-contained trailers that oftentimes military units can relocate using organic tactical wheeled vehicle assets. The mobile ODS systems are climate controlled and capable of operating on shore power or on-board generator.
FAAC’s ODS features a six-level training curriculum, ranging from Beginner Driver up through Advanced Tactical Driver. The curriculum tracks the driver as he/she progresses in skill level, presenting more difficult scenarios as skill level warrants. Key to the curriculum is the scoring system, which monitors in real time over 50 driving parameters. Whenever a customer-defined threshold is exceeded on any parameter, the instructor is alerted via the instructor operator station (IOS). Demerit points are assigned to the driver’s score as a function of skill level and scenario. If a driver fails a scenario, the curriculum manager recommends to the instructor a remedial scenario for the student. ODS driving scenarios are developed using a variety of visual databases as well as scripted and autonomous entities. All weather conditions and a number of vehicle malfunctions are selectable at the IOS. The significant capabilities already developed for the ODS offer customers a flexible yet economical means of meeting their driver training requirements.
Adequate military simulation requires a higher level of fidelity in order to ensure that skills learned within training systems translate into operations in the field. Whether personnel are training in the use of weapons, aircraft, or land vehicles, FAAC has the technology required to ensure that your training program can live up to the high standards of armed forces or defense industry. FAAC training systems are engineered to create true-to-life simulations that help military personnel develop not only the skills required for their operations, but also the ability to perform with excellence under the pressure of combat scenarios, difficult field conditions, and a variety of other circumstances.
