Designed to train JTAC’s, the SAVT provides a fully immersive environment in which virtual aircraft come to life in a large domed building.
A full FiST team can practice controlling indirect fire and close air support. The trainer features the actual equipment used by FiST teams including binoculars, range finders, etc.
The FiST practices procedures with voice recognition software that forces Marines to get their radio transmissions doctrinally correct. Air controllers can watch aircraft maneuver across the domed ceiling, making the SAVT the only simulator that realistically trains the skill of clearing aircraft to drop ordnance.
The advanced graphics and room design combined with the real equipment of the FiST team make the SAVT an extremely realistic training environment to prepare for live combined arms training in the field.
