Collins Aerospace showcases Air Combat Training System

Issue: 5 / 2019

Collins Aerospace Systems, in collaboration with the University of Iowa’s Operator Performance Laboratory (OPL), recently held a Secure Live Air-to-Air Mission (SLAAM) demonstration to showcase how armed forces can quickly adopt secure live, virtual and constructive (LVC) air combat training solutions.

During the demonstration, the company’s Joint Secure Air Combat Training System (JSAS) interfaced with ground systems running US Department of Defense (DoD)-approved Next Generation Threat System (NGTS) and a Modern Air Combat Environment (MACE) software.

As the only certified, blended training system operating on ranges, JSAS features proven security and data-link technologies that help overcome limitations in traditional training scenarios. Customers benefit from an open architecture that simplifies obsolescence management and accommodates new technologies.
