RAF Regiment Trial SAF-TAC – Dismounted Close Combat Virtual Reality Trainer

Earlier this month Dr Adam Easton (CEO) and Tom Constable (Director of Innovation) were fortunate enough to spent time with Officers and NCOs from the RAF Regiment. It was a privileged to spend time with such a professional group of instructors. They stress tested our SAF-TAC Virtual Reality Team Training Platform and successfully conducted mission planning, rehearsal and execution.

“Always good to see experimentation and innovation in action. Retaining the ability to operate and to fight against threats to Royal Air Force (RAF) demands leading edge and challenging training simulators, alongside live exercises, are increasingly part of our solution.” Air Commodore Scott Miller, RAF Regiment. Listening, and crucially actioning, end-user feedback is absolutely key to our approach with SAF-TAC our solution has to be affordable, portable and simple to use. My mission is to ensure SAF-TAC is a simulation training platform that military personnel actively WANT to use and can see tangible value in embracing and frequently using this new technology.

“Over the trial it has allowed me to gain further understanding of how we can incorporate VR into training. With the given opportunity to have input from the instructors on the trial, it will make for a system that is fit for our needs. I am looking forward to seeing this become incorporated into out training in the future. I can see its many of benefits being used to enhance the training that Trg Wg provides to all phases” Sgt RE Minshall Training Wing Training Support Squadron.
