ROYAL AIR FORCE WADDINGTON, UNITED KINGDOM (December 18, 2017) – The PLEXSYS Sentry Mission Training System (MTS), located at the Air Battlespace Training Centre (ABTC), RAF Waddington [part of the Distributed Synthetic Air Land Training (DSALT) Programme]; was used for the first time by 54 Sqn E-3D Sentry Operational Conversion Unit (OCU) to conduct basic Ab-Initio UK E-3D Sentry Switch Action Training. This training took place during July and August of 2017 and was deemed suitable to conduct the formal SA evaluation test for 3 students.
In October this year, the successful achievement in the use of the PLEXSYS MTS by 54 Sqn, has resulted in more formal requests to use the PLEXSYS Sentry MTS for further Ab-Initio Situational Awareness training in 2018; including PLEXSYS ASCOT Driver and Editor training for 54 Sqn AWACS Simulator staff (RAF and MoD civilians).
