SimCentric Tackling Live Fire Fratricide Risk Reduction

For over a decade SimCentric has provided sought after expertise for the military simulation and software industry. SimCentric are targeting the reduction of fratricide risk in live field firing by launching SAF-Foresight at I/ITSEC 2018 in Orlando, Florida from the 26th November 2018.

SimCentric Vice President – Strategy, Mr Gareth Collier commented “Complex live fire military training incorporating combined arms, simultaneous manoeuvre and night serials is inherently dangerous, however modern militaries are still only able to apply human judgement and intervention to mitigate potentially catastrophic risks. SAF-Foresight represents a quantum leap in safety and fratricide risk reduction for live fire military training.” Mr Collier said. “We are continuing a very aggressive roadmap into 2019 in conjunction with our various military stakeholders, with our goal being to help bring all soldiers home safely from every training activity.”

An early adopter of SAF-Foresight has included the Australian Army, Director of Land Simulation, Lieutenant-Colonel Jason Mildon commenting that SAF-Foresight represents the next step in the Australian Army’s modernisation of its Land Range and Target Systems, “Developed in conjunction with Subject Matter Experts from the School of Infantry and the Combined Arms Training Centre, SAF-Foresight will support rapid, accurate generation of the complex live fire activities and range design required to support the effective preparation of our Land Forces.” Lieutenant-Colonel Mildon said.
