SEA has achieved acceptance of the latest batch of improvements to the CSF System. The new capabilities allow users to configure data, systems and interfaces in such a way that significantly reduces exercise preparation times and thereby delivers an increased training capability overall.
“CSF is a core part of our plans and strategy to evolve Army synthetic training into the future” said Nick Taylor, Joint & Battlefield Trainers, Simulation and Synthetic Environments Project Team (JBTSE PT) Leader and customer for the Common Simulation Framework.
Having achieved FOC and installation of the system into the flagship training facilities in the UK and Germany, JBTSE PT and the Land Warfare Centre (LWC) simulation policy makers are now planning to take advantage of the CSF System’s unique data management and interfacing capabilities to deliver a huge improvement in training for troops and planners in their pre-deployment work-up phase.
Major Jes Giles at the LWC described the CSF System as: “Laying the foundation for a new way of evolving the extant and future training systems essential to training the British Army for operational deployment”.
Andy Whitfield, SEA’s Project Manager, said: “It is now vitally important to leverage the success and capability of the system into other areas of military training. The gains that can be realised by interoperability between sites and from the combination and fusion of different and nominally un-interoperable training systems within each facility will provide better preparation for operations.”
