Military Aviation Simulators: The right tools for the most realistic training

The Military Operations Division of FAAC today represents the original core of our company, founded in 1971 to provide high-speed accurate weapon simulations for the original training range USN/USAF Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI) systems developed to better prepare pilots for combat operations.

FAAC Air Warfare Simulation Division (AWS)

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.

Air Combat Simulation Training Weapon


FAAC’s SimBuilder software suite provides data-driven weapon system and countermeasure simulations for Live-Virtual-Constructive training environments: Live Air Combat Training Systems, Virtual Flight Simulators and Synthetic Battlespace. SimBuilder provides generic simulation modules for weapon subsystems included in air-to-air, surface-to-air, surface-to-surface and air-to-surface guided weapons. It also includes generic bomb, rocket, gun, chaff, flare, and jammer modules.


High fidelity multi-player pilot training is finally available at an affordable price! Using the Air Combat Training (ACT) package, you can now train your F-16 pilots in single ship proficiency skills as well as 2-ship and 4-ship team tactics.

Related Simulator: Guided Weapon Evalutation Facility Cockpit Simulator

The Guided Weapon Evaluation Facility (GWEF) at Eglin Air Force Base is currently procuring a new cockpit simulator to interface with their test systems. The GWEF provides test support for developing and evaluating precision-guided weapons in simulated “real world” environments. Promising ideas and concepts can be iteratively tested, analyzed and improved in the GWEF as a precursor to initial field/flight testing. Actual operational test anomalies can be investigated and resolved in the GWEF by replicating the test environment (complete controllability and repeatability of simulated test scenario).

Mistakes are easy here. We can correct mistakes here, we can’t correct mistakes there.”
