BVR Systems has announced a contract valued at $10.1 million for the provision of an Air Defence Simulator for an international customer. The Air Defence Simulator facility is re-configurable to support multiple weapon types and, as such, enables the training of Air Defence personnel in the operation of various Short Range Air Defence (SHORAD) weapons. Furthermore, the Simulator enables training of Air Defence Command and Control functions.

The Air Defence Simulator consists of a high-end graphical display system projected over dual 14m diameter domes, each simulator enabling the mounting of various SHORAD weapons. The simulator administration is conducted using dedicated instructor stations and a debriefing auditorium.

The simulator caters for trainees to operate realistic mockups of the SHORAD weapon systems within a simulated training environment, projected on the domes, while their actions are monitored and reviewed by the instructors. After completion of the scenario, the trainees' progress to a debriefing session, where a comprehensive review of the exercise is performed featuring an advanced analysis and scoring capability.

The simulator conforms with BVR's vision of offering its customers large scale joint force training scenarios featuring real and virtual air defence and airborne assets, this is achieved by providing for full interoperability with BVR's live and virtual training systems, such as the Air Defence Embedded Simulator (ADES), the EHUD Autonomous Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (AACMI) system, and the Full Mission Fighter Aircraft Simulator.

BVR Systems' CEO, Ilan Gillies, commented: "We are honored to receive this air defence simulation contract. This is an important element within the BVR product line and an additional significant milestone in BVR's strategy of focusing on the networking and interoperability among training systems." Mr. Gillies added that "the customer's decision and the encouraging increase in new orders achieved by BVR in the recent year reflect the market's faith in BVR's unique capabilities and innovative solutions."
