Military Driver & Route Clearance Training

Realistic training environments provide real experience. FAAC’s immersive simulator-based army driver training solutions provide real-world experiences, honing soldiers’ skills and judgment before they go anywhere near the field of operations. Our mission is to ensure that army personnel, whether a driver or an engineer, have the skills they need to minimize risk while clearing a route. Simulation training programs ensure that the driver can operate the vehicle under any circumstance – whether in combat conditions or simply on patrol.

FAAC’s custom hardware/software simulation solutions allow you to easily create complex real-time scenarios, and for your trainees to experience them in an emotionally vivid way at a low cost and with no risk of injury. We’ve built simulators for a  wide range of platforms including the Panther and Cougar MRAP, MPCV Buffalo, Oshkosh M-ATV, Husky Mine Detection System, MTRS Talon with scenarios to practice everything from basic vehicle and system operation to complex, multi-stage, multiparty route clearance training exercises.

Your scenarios can be set in any number of environments urban streets, undeveloped countryside, thick alpine forests, and wide rolling desert dunes.  These can be generic settings or coded to precisely match specific locales in your area of operations. The intuitive Instructor Operator Station (IOS) software allows for real-time changes to lighting conditions, weather, and the scenario itself.  Soldiers will learn to anticipate and adjust to the unexpected because you are able to force them to cope with it in training.

Instructors consistently report to key advantages when using integrated, immersive simulation-based training solutions:

  • Simulation-based training creates the opportunities to pinpoint exactly where trainees are succeeding and falling short, bringing home the ramifications of each field decision
  • Simulation-based training prepares soldiers for the emotional intensity of modern warfare, making complex decisions under duress while flooded with information

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. Driving in combat scenarios, or other high-risk environments, puts psychological strain on your drivers. Through high-fidelity simulation training, army vehicle operators can gain the capability to maintain focus on vehicular safety regardless of the situation. If you’re responsible for an army or defense industry training program, prioritize the safety and skill set of your drivers by developing a simulation training system that will give them the real-life skills they need. The threat of IEDs to soldiers and equipment is an important factor in today’s military operations. Ensuring that your crew is able to clear routes of explosive devices and other threats is paramount to the success and safety of army personnel on duty.

Learn more about our Virtual Clearance Training Suite (VCTS)

The advanced IOS, multi-net communications, scenario generation system and updated databases ensure the VCTS is the Army’s most configurable and flexible ground simulation training suite. In addition, FAAC designed the VCTS with a modular upgrade/modification capability to meet evolving requirements. FAAC is in Phase 1 of a multi-year upgrade with planned addition of remote controlled vehicles and weapons stations, new sensors, blowers, rollers, and complex IEDs.

The Virtual Clearance Training Suite allows your crews to rehearse route clearance and IED inspection procedures without any risk to personnel or equipment. At its core, the VCTS allows Army crews to develop coordination when inspecting a potential threat, and to perform as a unit in even the most difficult field conditions. Unlike traditional aids, simulation training allows trainers to review and pinpoint any potential areas for further rehearsal.
