Real Experience. Real Training. Real Lives.

Realistic training environments provide real experience and save real lives.

As Sergeant Dan Snyder of the Marine Corps Modeling and Simulation Office noted years ago “a real firefight is not a good time to explore new ideas.”  Immersive simulation training makes it possible for today’s soldiers to do just that gaining the greatest knowledge transfer at the lowest possible risk and cost.

In addition to the fully integrated  Virtual Clearance Training Suite, FAAC also offers a full range of flexible military vehicle simulators. One example of this is training simulators for the operation of a mine-resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicle. With this, an army trainer can lead the student through a variety of real-life scenarios that will test the skills and focus of personnel.

MRAP Training with the ODS

All ODS MRAP training simulator solutions have scalable displays to emulate a 180 to 225-degree field-of-view.  ODS hardware configurations range from full six-degree-of-freedom motion-based sims to fixed-base simulators with motion seats and force-feedback steering.  Simulator cabs can be generic (with swappable dashboards and instruments), built into actual production vehicle cabs, or swappable cabs. The simulation software automatically changes the field-of-view and driving dynamics to match the real-world idiosyncrasies of various armor systems or load types.



Better Results

FAAC’s Military Operator Driving Simulator (ODS) has been field-proven to give better results at reduced training costs:

  • Improve knowledge retention by up to 90%
  • Increase driver efficiency by up to 200%
  • Reduce accident rate
  • Reduce vehicle operation and maintenance costs

MRAP Training Simulation Solutions

Your simulation solution can be installed in a fixed-site facility or self-contained trailers (easily relocated: all mobile ODS systems are climate controlled and can run on shore power or onboard generator).

Most importantly, ODS solutions come with an advanced software suite that coordinates motion cues, visual cues, and scenarios while taking trainees through your validated curriculum.  The standard software package includes a six-level training curriculum, ranging from Beginner Driver up through Advanced Tactical Driver.

Training scenarios are built on our extensive visual library of generic or site-specific environments and include all weather conditions, and both scripted and autonomous entities.

This learning system increases scenario difficulty as trainee performance warrants while monitoring the driver along more than 50 parameters. Whenever a customer-defined threshold is exceeded on any parameter, the instructor is alerted via the Instructor Operator Station (IOS).

Drivers are scored dynamically, based on current skill level and past performance.  If trainees fail a scenario, the learning software can recommend remedial scenarios.  But the instructor is always in control:  The instructor can always opt for a different scenario, or modify a scenario in real-time, changing weather, light conditions, visibility, adding vehicle malfunctions, and so on.

MRAP Training Customer-for-Life

FAAC was founded in 1971 specifically to create military weapons simulations for the U.S. armed services.  Since 2002 FAAC’s Operator Driving Simulators (ODS) have been a major contributor to the training of military Motor Transport Operators, setting the standard for real-time military weapons training and assessment. FAAC advancements help trainees learn critical skills safely and affordably.

FAAC embraces a “Customer for Life” philosophy. We invest time in understanding your assets and objectives, work closely with your team to develop and deliver the appropriate simulation solution, and help you find the best way to integrate this custom solution into your training procedures. Most importantly, we support you in maintaining and evolving this solution as your policies, assets, and challenges inevitably change over time.

We don’t sell equipment; we partner with agencies and their instructors to develop their ideal simulation training solution. Our mission is to ensure that MRAP operators have the real-life skills they needed to perform at the highest level in the field. This means conducting drills that ensure personnel are trained in operating the MRAP in every possible field condition – something that is accomplished best through the use of high-fidelity simulation training.
