Elbit Systems is unveiling a new version of the Tactical Battle Ground Trainer (TBT) at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando, Florida, December 1-5, 2014.
Recent improvements to the TBT's interface include upgraded C4I hardware and software elements, enhanced visual displays and computer-based 3G imaging capabilities, and integration of advanced post-mission analysis and debriefing tools that can be synchronized across multiple locations.
In addition, enhanced Computer Generated Forces (CGF), platforms, munitions and weapon systems have been added to provide a truly-realistic Virtual and Constructive training arena that is up-to-date with modern militaries' operational capabilities.
These CGFs and virtual replicas encompass modern Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFVs); mini Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) based on Elbit Systems' Skylark I-LE; simulation of new protection technologies and simulation of advanced Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detection systems.
"We have specifically adjusted the TBT to keep up with the complex and ever-changing operational environment of the IDF's land forces," said Alon Afik, VP Training and Simulation Business Line at Elbit Systems Aerospace Division.
“Due to its interoperable open architecture, scalability and ease-of-use, the TBT training platform offers an ideal solution for virtually any modern land force. Unlike other available platforms, TBT is not limited to a particular set of simulation elements, rather enables integration and reconfiguration of cutting-edge technologies within existing C4I systems and fighting procedures, as is evident in the IDF's TBT”, he added.
