USSOCOM Select FiresFST For Accredited JTAC Training

For over a decade SimCentric has provided sought after expertise for the military simulation and software industry.

US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) have awarded SimCentric Technologies a fixed price contract for FiresFST, enabling US Army SOF and Naval Special Warfare Command units to train multiple JTACs in individual and collective training proficiencies, successfully achieving certification for 18 personnel.


SimCentric Senior Director – North America, Mr Lee Power commented “We are thrilled at being the training solution of choice for US Special Operations Command. Using FiresFST, trainees were able to achieve formal certification whilst executing advanced and tactically realistic training serials.”

“The incorporation of complex indirect surface fires, including naval surface fires, close air support, video downlink integration and remote observer integration in a near-peer coalition environment maximises capability preparedness and survivability for our US SOF personnel. We were particularly pleased at the feedback from Instructors on the relative ease of use of our software, whilst still delivering the full range of modern capability effects.” Mr Power said.


JTAC-E Instructor and SOF Joint Fires Specialist for the concentration period, Mr Teddy Pernal commented “What I liked most about FiresFST software was how easy it was for the support staff to teach the JTAC Instructors from USASOC, USSOCOM and RAAF 4 Squadron.”

“The ability to take JTAC Instructors and pilots from different units and nations, then train them on a new software they have never used while maintaining training standards in such a rapid time does not happen as easily as it did during this Mobile Training Team. I will continue to use FiresFST from SimCentric as it provides a strong effective standardized approach to combined arms training while making it easy to use for any training instructor or facilitator that sits behind it.” Mr Pernal said.

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.
