The Ground Party Simulator, also a containerized immersive environment, is fully integrated with the Aircraft Simulator, enabling ground forces to seamlessly join the collective training mission with their aircrews just as they would engage together in real combat situations. With full mission rehearsal capability, the MRT system has doubled combat mission readiness rates and is certified for both qualification and currency training of AFGSC security forces.
Commenting on being named a finalist in MS&T’s prestigious annual awards program, Jose Diaz, Sr. Vice President, Kratos Training Solutions, said that: “Making immersive technology a key awards category reflects the transformative impact this technology is having on military training. Kratos is pleased to be in the vanguard of this training evolution.”
