Transform pilot training with tactical datalink-powered live virtual constructive exercises
  • Enhance scenario complexity: integrate virtual and constructive entities into live exercises for richer training experiences.
  • Leverage existing datalinks: utilise operational Link-16 for data exchange without extensive infrastructure changes.
  • Increase training value: preliminary results show benefits for both live and virtual pilots.
  • Reduce training costs: explore a cost-effective alternative to fully interoperable Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) environments.
