JTAC, FO and Pilot Instructor Station, FDC and CGF

 

Deployable, Effective, Flexible and Affordable

 

F-INSTR is a deployable solution that offers functionality for the creation, execution and control of comprehensive mission-critical scenarios.

 

F-INSTR is designed to support training of JTACs and Forward Observers in Close Air Support procedures (TTPs), Artillery Observers (AO) in Call for Fire procedures, and Pilots in Air-to-Air and Air-to-Ground scenarios.

 

F-INSTR is a very flexible instructor station that offers a multitude of built-in functionalities. The solution has a very intuitive, easy-to-use interface. Creation of scenarios is done in a very efficient time-saving manner.

 

F-INSTR components include:

 

  • JTAC, FO and Pilot instructor station
  • Artillery Fire Direction Center (FDC)
  • CGF
  • Recording & Playback for AAR

 

The Pilot Instructor component controls scenarios for F-16 simulators. It offers LINK-16 capability, functionality for weapon load-outs, and it integrates with Air Control units. Likewise, the JTAC/FO/AO Instructor component controls CAS and Call for Fire scenarios. The Fire Direction Center (FDC) offers a very comprehensive functionality for delivering indirect fire based on Fire Missions from AOs. The CGF creates and controls entities (air, land, and sea), and provides functionality for defining their behavior, routes and plans.
