4 Regt Royal Artillery JTACs have just received another concentrated period of accredited JTAC training with Nautilus. Throughout the week, they conducted currency controls including Joint Fires, laser, night tactics techniques and procedures (TTPs), remote observer, full motion video (FMV) and rotary wing. The Certified JTACs were able to consolidate the training they have all received at JFACTSU, prior to their Certified and Qualified checks (CQ). The CQ JTACs also …Read More
3 Commando Brigade’s JTACs have just completed an intense period of accredited simulation training with Nautilus International. 29 Commando newly Certified JTACs were able to utilise the Cobra system working through their Post Certificate Consolidation Syllabus (PCCS). 17 of the PCCS’s 19 serials, as contained in the JSP 918 Part 1 Directive, can be achieved on an accredited simulator. 29 Cdo JTACs already certified and qualified were able to conduct …Read More
Nautilus has just returned from Scotland after supporting 16 Air Assault Brigade (AAB) and the RAF Regiments Air Land Integration (ALI) Cell, on Terminal Strike (TS) 17-2. The deployable Cobra screen and VBS3 simulator can be assembled in less than two hours to deliver accredited JTAC training. 16 AAB and the ALI teams were able to rotate through live OP’s and the simulator over the two week period. By locating …Read More
During October, 19 Regiment Royal Artillery (RA) completed an intense week of JTAC training and validation utilising Nautilus Internationals accredited Cobra Simulator. The week was designed to develop and test Certified JTAC’s in complex Non Permissive scenarios, culminating with Joint Air Land Organisation (JALO) STANEVAL Certified and Qualified (CQ) Checks. Simulated training enables JTAC’s to work in a multi-platform, Joint Fires environment at a fraction of the cost, by using …Read More
Nautilus recently had their rapidly deployable JTAC simulation system accredited by The US JFS ESC and NATO. Alongside of the system accreditation, Nautilus JTAC SME’s completed the annual UK FACSTANEVAL theory and practical exams to deliver JTAC training.
Nautilus International delivered simulation training to 1 Artillery Brigade (1 Arty Bde) JTAC’s and JTAC-Instructors (I) at Larkhill over a 5 day period in May. Using the JALO, US & NATO accredited Cobra Simulator and VBS3, 1 Arty Bde were able to conduct Type 2 and 3 controls from both Fixed and Rotary Wing platforms. Utilising the Form, Fit and Function emulated JTAC equipment (LF28 LTD, PLRF25, IZLID Ultra and …Read More
To extend our capabilities and enable efficient support for simulations we have created in-house tools to improve upon the foundations of VBS to give us greater control and efficiency. Toolbox 2.0 brings many improvements to VBS’s functionality so that we are providing the best real-time accurate simulations to mimic real life. This allows us to do much more in an efficient manner such as grouping units into formations, getting in and out …Read More
To enhance the current Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) simulation training, Nautilus International, in conjunction with VSS, has significantly invested into procuring Laser Range Finder Binoculars, Laser Target Designator and IR pointer for night Close Air Support training.
To complement and increase the current MOD JTAC training, Nautilus has invested in Sony’s Ultra High Definition projectors and provides the latest in display technology. This enables the JTAC to positively identify objects within simulated environments contained in VBS3 with ultra realism. New 4K standard + 60 frames per second – The projector can show up to 60 frames per second at 4K . This new 4K industry standard has much higher …Read More
