System IntegrationIntegrate and compliment multiple products and platforms
The variance of simulation requirements between one weapons platform and the next and the rising costs of training and inversely proportional budgets, drove PLEXSYS to develop a strategy for integration of PLEXSYS products when practical, with existing and sometimes competing products as opposed to all out replacement. This strategy focuses on how to compliment or augment other CGFs to provide the best training solution for the end user at a reduced cost. PLEXSYS’s proven performance in this area is demonstrated daily during Combat Air Forces DMO events.
Advanced Simulation Combat Operations Trainer (ASCOT) was designed to work seamlessly with other CFG systems as both a control and as a complimentary system. Current Operations and Integration (O&I) evaluation reports, compiled by the USAF Combat Air Force’s DMO integration team leads, consistently show the PLEXSYS ASCOT system as the most cross platform capable CFG certified for CAF DMO. At present ASCOT can perform entity transfer of control with most other CGFs in the industry, and is progressively integrated with all others as we proceed with advanced product development.
Aside from ASCOT, other PLEXSYS products include PLEXComm, Advanced Simulation Interface Buffer (ASIB), Direct Link Interface (DLI), and Enhanced Mission Record and Review System (EMRRS). They not only interoperate with DIS or HLA systems on the network, but also support a number of other interfaces to integrate with both digital and analog systems. Due to the complexities of simulation environments, maintaining these interfaces and continually analyzing the need to introduce new ones is a key part of the integration strategy at PLEXSYS. Such a commitment to interoperability and responsiveness to changing environments has received accolades across our customer base.
