Exercise Support

PLEXSYS supports War-Fighter training in the field, in garrison, and in mission training centers around the world. Configurations range from stand-alone system training to multiple-site training involving operational units both within CONUS and overseas utilizing a wide area network. The combination of our systems and our smart people, provide the most effective Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) experience across the whole Planning Briefing, execution and Debrief cycle.  

Environment Generator

As an Environment Generator (EG), ASCOT provides the common operational picture and exercise tempo to all exercise participants and interfaces with constructive and virtual simulation systems. Exercise requirements dictate how many ASCOT work stations are needed. ASCOT is certified on the USAF CAF DMO network supporting and is capable of either HLA or DIS protocols. The ASCOT is a very user-friendly EG. An operator can be trained to drive multiple aircraft, engage hostiles, and generate data-link messages in a distributive training environment within a matter of hours.
 

Communications

Our sonomarc voice communications solution interoperates with any other DIS and HLA compliant radio on a network. In addition to simulated radios, sonomarc LVC can translate between a digital signal and an analog signal for use with real-world communications systems. Sonomarc LVC is capable of connecting directly into the DSU in the USMC MRQ, allowing operators at a TAOC to “train like they fight” and control a simulated event using their organic communications suite.
 

Integration

PLEXSYS provides RADAR and IFF, data-link picture, and radio for C2 operators by interfacing with numerous types of tactical equipment, including: USAF CRC, USMC CAC2S, USAF AOCs, Navy Battle Force Tactical Trainer (BFTT), US, UK, FR, NATO AWACS, Battle Control System (BCS) and Army Patriot.
 

Brief / Debrief

VADAAR LVC can be added to any platform. Tap into video displays, cameras, audio, and network traffic to record everything that happens. Give instructors the power to set bookmarks and make notes throughout the exercise, or create them automatically from event triggers. Then, recall the bookmarks during playback for precision teaching moments.

Data-Link Connections

ASCOT can exchange simulated datalink with other DIS or HLA compliant systems or integrate with real-world equipment. Data-link emulation is proven not only with live and simulated US platforms, but also with NATO, UK, and other Non-US platforms. Our Direct Link Interface (DLI) tool can provide several data-link protocols, including: J-REAP C, Military Standard 1553, Simple-J, Simple Edition 2 or SISO-J.
 

On-Site Support

PLEXSYS is committed to providing a quality training experience with our products. Exercises can be developed ahead of time at our PLEXSYS headquarters or on-site on a daily basis. Exercise Support, Product Support Specialists deploy with our equipment and are “on the ground” resources for ASCOT and sonomarc set-up, interface, troubleshooting and operations.

Current Usage

PLEXSYS frequently participates in Fleet Synthetic Training (FST) events. Utilizing sonomarc teams are capable of receiving simulated radio entity data from the US Navy over the JTEN and sharing it with US Air Force AWACS, CRC or US Marine CAC2S. ASCOT has been used for US Marine Corps Operation Enduring Freedom spin ups at the unit level as well as Korean O-Plan training for units on the Pacific front. ASCOT participates in DMOC hosted Virtual Flag events on a regular basis.
