Synthetic environment training is when elements of military and civilian organisations are exercised in a virtual (a simulation involving real people operating simulated systems) environment without having the full expense of deploying costly live assets such as aerial fixed or rotary wing aircraft. This gives the distinct advantage of undertaking exercises in a vast number of scenarios, whereby team leaders or duly authorised persons are put under simulated pressure to manage a crisis, make informed decisions and take decisive actions in a safe simulated environment.
Standard operating procedures can be regularly and safely rehearsed to great effect. Large scale operations or crisis management training exercises can be undertaken for a fraction of the cost of a full deployment or draw upon resources into a training exercise. In order that the cross spectrum of training delivery can be achieved, it is essential that Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) support can be provided, so the decision making process can be tested. Due to inclement weather, un-serviceability of organic ISR air assets and cost, Synthetic Training can fulfil many requirements such as:
- Accredited Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) training
- Commanders decision making and selection process
- Pattern of life and general activity
- Overt and covert ISR situational awareness representation
- Terrain modelling and scripting
- CCTV feeds and social media simulation
Our administrators have a plethora of VBS operational experience, which enables us to fully understand your requirements and be able to replicate that into challenging simulated scenarios. This experience coupled with a multitude of in-house improvements, and paired with tracking for units on the ground, enables us to provide unparalleled live simulation to meet any requirement.
We have successfully had our deployable Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) simulator accredited by UK FACSTANEVAL, US Joint Fire Support Executive Steering Committee and NATO, to the following standards:
- Type 2 Controls
- Type 3 Controls
- Joint Fires Co-Ordination
Using the deployable, highly portable Nautilus COBRA JTAC screen, VBS3 and VBS Fires FST software, Nautilus are providing a new, unrivalled capability in the UK. Using Form, Fit and Function emulated JTAC equipment, such as the LF28 LTD, PLRF25, IZLID Ultra and Harris Communications 7800HH radios with 7800T downlink receivers and Digitally Aided CAS (DACAS), the system can be fully set up and ready for use within 2 hours. All of the JTAC simulation scenarios and terrain are based on real world locations, both in the UK and overseas. This allows the qualified JTAC to train in a realistic and demanding, simulated environment.
We have been working tirelessly with our suppliers Cobra Simulation, Bohemia Interactive Simulations, SimCentric, Virtual Simulation Systems and Harris Communication Systems, to provide this very unique capability to JTACs in the UK. This will allow JTAC training to be conducted in almost any location and will enable re-qualification, maintain JTAC skill sets and ultimately, significantly reduce training overheads.
We are currently providing simulated JTAC training support to a large number of UK MoD JTACs, including 1 Artillery Brigade and 29 Commando Royal Artillery and have recently supported JTAC Concentrations which included JTACs from the UK, US, France, Norway and Canada. We have also provided JTAC simulation training to the Bahrain Royal Guard JTACs.
We provide medical simulation services in the form of a state of the art patient simulator called SimMan 3G Trauma, live actors, simulated Simbodies and Simbody parts.
SimMan 3G Trauma can display the signs and symptoms of any trauma-related injury including most neurological and physiological signs. SimMan was designed to deliver the most advanced realistic medical training possible and is cutting edge technology. Used by the Defence, NHS, Emergency services and other first responders, SimMan 3G brings unrivalled medical simulation to any kind of exercise requiring medical training, evaluation and re-validation. SimMan 3G was designed to work in harsh hostile environments and is the perfect choice for Road Traffic Collisions, Mass Casualty events, Blunt Trauma, Blast, IED, Gun Shot Wounds and CBRN environments.
SimMan is available for hire in the UK or overseas and comes with a fully trained technician. SimMan is able to test all elements of a medical response team, from the point of injury (Patrol Medic/Paramedic) through to the method of casualty evacuation (Helicopter/Ambulance) and beyond towards the field hospital or NHS Accident & Emergency department and ultimately into the operating theater. SimMan can be used for very basic training, first person on scene, airway management through to CPR including training or testing fully qualified Paramedics in performing life saving roadside surgical procedures.
Live actors are used to provide casualty simulation whereby one or more of the casualties need to be present. Live actors in conjunction with special effects make-up and fake blood products, can be made up to represent traumatic amputations, massive hemorrhaging or present other specific injuries. Bookings can be made through the website or by contacting our medical simulation manager directly.
Simbodies or simulation body parts are used to further enhance medical training by complementing the use of live actors and SimMan 3G. Mass casualty incidents, exercises or events, with large numbers of fatalities, typically require simulation bodies and simulated body parts. Live actors are replaced with Simbodies or Simbody parts whereby prolonged periods of time are required for casualties to lay on the ground until the event is brought under control. Simbodies or Simbody parts are inexpensive to hire and deliver mass casualty affects without the costly welfare issues associated with utilising a live actor. For more information please contact us!
Weapon environment simulation systems such as the interoperable LACS (Laser Advanced Combat System) is a close quarter battle training system dedicated to the operators from law enforcement and the defence sector. The system can be used in combination with real or simulation weapons and is ideal for force on force CQB/CQC/CT training and for target aiming (static, dynamic or reactive).
‘Counter Terrorism training exercises can now be conducted in any venue, anywhere, without leaving a trace of paint, blank round cartridges or gunpowder residue.’
Why would you start using LACS?
Versatility – Fast mounting and configuration; use it anytime and everywhere – there is no absolute need for dedicated training areas, use it even in the corridors of your barracks (to train more often) as well as in the dedicated locations in which operators need to train; like airports, stations, other public places.
Cost-efficiency – Train more frequent without having to arrange dedicated training areas using the simulation weapon systems.
What can you do with LACS?
RANGE FIRE, KILLING HOUSE, RIFLE AND HANDGUN TACTICAL TRAINING
Responsive tactical target training, dynamic tactical target training, first level static target training, use of explosives, granades, flash bangs and simulative training devices.
FORCE-ON-FORCE TRAINING with RIFLE and HANDGUN and EXPLOSIVE DEVICE
Training for outdoor and indoor (airplane, airport, house, office, theatre, school, etc), training in urban areas.
FORCE-ON-FORCE DEBRIEFING AND ANALYSIS

The VIPER Firearms Training System offers a high quality training capability either on or off range, with the ability to fire Live, Simunition/Paint or Laser at Virtual Reality software.
Whilst there are many ways to train and review firearm handling many expect it to fit the needs of the world wide security community. That is obviously not possible, as different cultures have different understandings of different situations. Rules of Engagement differ around the world, and training systems, laser and live fire have to be totally adaptable.
Why would you start using VIPER?
Adaptable – Fast set up and configuration; use it anytime and everywhere – there is no absolute need for dedicated training areas, use it in the classroom or even at home.
Cost-efficiency – Train more frequent without having to arrange dedicated training areas using the simulation weapon systems.
