Military Simulation Training

Turnkey military simulation training solutions for combat and tactics

Realistic training environments provide real experience. FAAC’s military simulation training solutions—from air combat and refueling, to tactical vehicle training, route clearance, and day-to-day operations—provide real-world experiences, honing soldiers’ skills and judgment before they go anywhere near the field of operations.

     FAAC was founded in 1971 specifically to create military weapons simulations for the U.S. Air Force. These military simulation training technologies have become the standard for real-time military weapons training and assessment. FAAC advancements—including the leap to high-fidelity simulation (leaving behind low-fidelity coefficient-driven algorithms) and head tracking technology (providing a superior simulation of depth perception)—help trainees learn critical skills safely and affordably.

     FAAC hardware uses wraparound visuals, force-feedback steering, motion seats, and real instrument clusters to create an immersive and emotionally vivid training environment. Quick-disconnect interchangeable dash panels support training for multiple vehicles on a single platform. Training suites include the Panther and Cougar MRAP, MPCV Buffalo, Oshkosh M-ATV, and others. Quick-change armor panels provide realistic driver-view restriction. Your military vehicle simulation solution can include simulated communications networks, Husky Mine Detection System (HMDS—with or without ground-penetrating radar), and more. FAAC’s MTRS Talon simulator has original OEM controls, for absolute fidelity to the field experience.

     FAAC’s custom simulation software offers advanced real-time scenario generation. Your trainees will experience a diverse range of environments—from urban streets to totally undeveloped countryside, thick alpine forests to wide rolling desert dunes—in both generic terrain and specific locales. The intuitive Instructor Operator Station (IOS) software allows for real-time changes to lighting conditions, weather, the scenario itself, even emulating vehicle malfunctions.

     The real value in any integrated, immersive simulation training solution is in the opportunities it creates for instructors to pinpoint exactly where trainees are succeeding and falling short. FAAC offers tools to facilitate after-action debriefing, analyze trainee performance, and create custom scenarios unique to your needs. As policies and battlefield realities change, so can your simulation.

     FAAC embraces a “Customer for Life” philosophy. We invest time in understanding your needs, in terms of equipment, scenarios, policies, and people. We then develop and deliver the appropriate turnkey solution. We’ll help you find the best way to integrate this custom solution into your training program, and support you in maintaining and evolving this solution as your challenges change over time.

     We don’t sell equipment; we partner with organizations to develop the ideal tools and create the most realistic and effective military simulation training experience.

FAAC Incorporated Military Operations Division Background

Our weapon simulation technology established and remains the standard for real-time weapons assessment. This capability was eventually brought from the training world to the tactical world through the incorporation of the Zone Acquisition Program (ZAP) into the fighter’s Operational Flight Program. ZAP was a revolutionary leap in capability to the US warfighter, replacing low-fidelity coefficient driven algorithms, with accurate high-speed simulations.

Our 40+ years of weapon simulation and software development experience is used to provide our customers with the best training and tactical software possible. FAAC’s military driving simulators create real-world experiences that let drivers hone their skills in a variety of challenging situations. Drivers can learn a wide range of tasks, from basic vehicle operating procedures to more advanced scenario-based tactical training for many different vehicle types. 6-DOF, 3-DOF seat motion, fixed facility or mobile, FAAC has a driving simulator to meet your training requirements.
