September 2015

After going through a down selection process, the IFAD Radio Simulation Solution (IRAS) was chosen to be used in a communication suite for the conduct of distributed training exercises. Distributed Synthetic Air Land Training (DSALT), conducted at the Air Battlespace Training Centre (ABTC) at RAF Waddington is now using IRAS as its primary radio simulation. DSALT is one of the world’s foremost distributed simulation and training programmes for team and collective training. The IRAS is supporting over 40 communication stations, which allow for simultaneous usage on 24 different channels. In addition, IRAS enables communication with two other existing communication systems at the same site. The whole communication solution is based on the Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) protocol. The full delivery provides the IRAS product as well as facility adaptation and product support until late 2019.
