SimCentric are targeting the reduction of fratricide risk in live field firing by launching SAF-Foresight at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) 2018 in Orlando, Florida, 26 – 30 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. 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.” Mr Collier said.
An early adopter of SAF-Foresight has included the Royal Australian Army Director of Land Simulation, Lieutenant Colonel Jason Mildon, who says 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 the rapid, accurate generation of the complex live fire activities and range design required to support the effective preparation of our Land Forces,” according to Mildon.
In development for over a year in conjunction with key stakeholders across ABCA and NATO nations, SAF-Foresight is a live fire exercise planning, management, visualization, briefing, risk mitigation, and safety alert intervention tool aimed at the reduction of fratricide risk in live fire military training.
For over a decade SimCentric has provided sought after expertise for the military simulation and software industry.
Leading on from major recent procurements by ADF and USSOCOM of SimCentric’s safety and accreditation software, SimCentric Technologies concluded a highly successful I/ITSEC 2018 in Orlando, 26-29 Nov 2018.
SimCentric’s Joint Fires software was once again demonstrated as the mature, incumbent and accredited Joint Fires solution for the VBS environment, supporting both VBS3 and the live VBS STE and VBS Blue IG central demonstrations on the Bohemia Interactive Simulations booth. Additionally, the versatility of SAFFIRESTM, SimCentric’s engine agnostic standards-based Joint Fires solution was shown integrated with a variety of other simulation environments and Image Generators (including Unreal, Unity, VR-Vantage and SpatialOS) throughout the show floor.
SimCentric also launched its fratricide risk reduction and range planning software SAF-ForesightTM to widespread interest from military and industry alike.
Delivering white paper presentations on architectures to reduce live fire fratricide risk, and also enhancing realism through Megacity replication in synthetic environments, SimCentric continues to drive the agenda as thought leaders in the use of safe, accredited simulation-based training to deliver tangible military capability.
CEO, Dr Adam Easton commented “We are thrilled at the response we have received from our military and industry partners at I/ITSEC 2018. Our specific focus on delivering capability through safe and accredited simulation training leveraging our expertise in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning has garnered exceptional support and excitement amongst our user community. We look forward to continuing to invest in long term partnerships with both military and industry alike to continue delivering unique and relevant systems that enable the safe employment of combat power.”
SimCentric Technologies are focussed on enabling the safe employment of your combat power. When safety is on the line, only the very best training solution will suffice.
