CAMAS, WA (July 2018) – PLEXSYS Interface Products, Inc. is pleased to announce its latest subcontract award, the Navy Aviation Distributed Training Center (NADTC) 2.0 Program, for delivery of a comprehensive communications simulation system, sonomarc, into a coordinated distributed training center that supports mission training exercises in support of Fleet Synthetic Training – Aviation (FST-A).
“Sonomarc was a natural choice because of its client-server design,” said Homer Walden, PLEXSYS’ Senior Business Development Manager. “This design comes from our extensive experience with LVC simulation and was a deciding factor in meeting the demands of the NADTC 2.0 program. PLEXSYS is excited to team with ASI and BGI LLC on this effort. Together we bring a wealth of experience in the LVC arena, ensuring success for the NADTC community.”
Awarded by prime contractor Aero Simulation Inc. (ASI), the program directly supports the future of Live, Virtual, and Constructive (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 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 (NCTE) node and secure distributed network system to connect strike and maritime virtual training centers throughout the world simultaneously.
The training center will use sonomarc with both the Joint Semi-Automated Forces (JSAF) and Next Generation Threat System (NGTS) synthetic environment generators.
Founded in 1986, PLEXSYS is a modeling and simulation software company with 30+ years of delivering LVC training readiness solutions and innovation. We are a 100% employee-owned small business, with more than 150 full-time employees plus part-time consultants in nine states and four foreign countries.
The sonomarc communications systems is a powerful client/server, audio distribution and effects software package that provides training realism for fighter cockpits, civilian aviation, and ground-based communications with high-fidelity, low-latency performance. This comprehensive communications system addresses live and virtual communication training needs across multiple platforms through the use of instructor role player, virtual people, record and replay, and scripted events.
