ADVANCED SIMULATION COMBAT OPERATIONS TRAINER (ASCOT)

ASCOT is a real-time interactive simulation tool that easily manages the entire battlespace from single ship Close Air Support (CAS) missions to multi-axis, multi-ship Special Operations.  Multiple systems can be networked together at a single site, or at multiple sites around the world for dynamic large-scale joint and coalition exercises.

Fielded as a major component of the USAF’s DMO simulation-based training program, ASCOT can stimulate simulators, as well as real-world systems, providing a robust and realistic training environment

EXERCISE GENERATION

With ASCOT’s user-friendly interface, a sim driver can drive and maintain a large number of air, surface, subsurface, and ground entities during an exercise. Formations and packages are quickly created with a single action – operators need drive only the lead entity. Operators can have full control of an entity’s weapons and sensor systems, or can choose auto-fire mode, where the entity will automatically detect and engage opposing forces. Other Smart Entity features, like RTB and route following, alleviate driver workload.

The flexibility of ASCOT gives Instructors and Exercise Directors the ability to control exercise tempo and dynamically direct the exercise focus to meet the training needs of their audience.
