As the U.S. Navy’s Master jet Base, NAS Oceana will house the distributed training center that supports mission training exercises in support of Fleet Synthetic Training – Aviation (FST-A).

ASI was chosen to design, build, and deliver the Navy Aviation Distributed Training Center (NADTC) 2.0 Device to NAS Oceana, VA. This was to be an upgrade to NADTC 1.0, but as the project moved moved forward, a near entire re-design and build was required due to remarkable advances in Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) technologies and huge advancements in Distributed Training capabilities and possibilities. 

Awarded by the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division, the program directly supports the future of LVC training for U.S. Navy Aviation.  Up to three NADTC Operation Centers (NOCs) may be delivered under this contract with locations at Naval Air Station (NAS) Oceana, VA, with options for NAS North Island, CA, and at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Iwakuni, Japan.

The NADTC will have the capability to host secure distributed pre-mission briefing events, execute multi-mission virtual and constructive training events, record training events and playback recorded missions to the Navy’s aviation strike and maritime communities. The NADTC staff will use the Navy’s Continuous Training Environment (NTCE) node and secure distributed network system to connect strike and maritime virtual training centers throughout the world simultaneously.

The training center will use both the Joint Semi-Automated Forces (JSAF) and Next Generation Threat System (NGTS) synthetic environment generators.

Lessons learned as the leader for Operation Blended Warrior at I/ITSEC 2017 have put ASI’s ahead of our peer-industry partners/competitors in this exact kind of Distributed Training and LVC technology innovation. 

“ASI is pleased to, again, be recognized by NAWC-TSD for our capability to deliver products which meet or exceed the customer’s needs.” said Russ Shepard, Vice President of Business Development. “While ASI has been a leader in training device development for years, this effort continues to extend our corporate capabilities into the LVC simulation environment.  ASI is also excited to team with BGI LLC on this effort.  They bring a wealth of experience in the LVC arena and we believe together will ensure the NOC meets the customers needs!”

Live, Virtual, Constructive Reality
