on Monday, 19 May 2014. Posted in May 2014

Cobra Simulation along with Simulation Displays and Nautilus International Risk Consultants has partnered to feature at ITEC in Germany showcasing the Cobra Curved Display. Find us at booth C120 Cologne Messe.

See a real world live demonstrations of a JTAC (Joint Terminal Attack Controller) simulation by Nautilus International Risk Consultants who provide the Cobra Curved Display to the UK MOD in synthetic environment training scenarios — the demonstration is displayed on a 6-channel, 3m collapsible dome and small footprint SD-Cobra Curved Display, which provides a high quality spherical panoramic display, supporting a single projector.

Alexander Bradley Managing Director at Cobra Simulation said "The military is a key growth market for Cobra Simulation. We launched the Cobra Curved Display to the Military market at ITEC in Rome last year, the feedback and subsequent sales were great. We are thrilled to have one of our clients Nautilus International Risk Consultants partner with us on the booth to demonstrate their application. "

The JTAC is one of the most crucial people on the battlefield. Taking responsibility for a three dimensional airspace and multiple assets, both ground and air — often whilst under fire and extreme pressure — requires a calm head, moral courage and the ability to make quick decisions whilst working under strict Rules of Engagement. 

Training for Operations on a simulator gives the JTAC and a pilot the chance to work through complex scenarios, all based upon operational experience and lessons identified. 

Simulation Displays will demonstrate how this can be achieved, via 10-minute long training scenarios. Van der Helm describes how this joint air/land simulation will be presented. “The JTAC will stand in front of the Dome, which displays the ground environment and communicates and controls with the pilot through his mission at the Cobra station.” Additional content for the dome will be provided by Makemedia, specialists in large-scale 3D simulation/visualisation content.

Nautilus International Risk Consultants C4ISTAR Manager, Matthew Jones said “The Cobra Curved Display has been an excellent training system, to practice JTACs , Mortar Fire Controllers and Ground Commanders in their decision making process. The ability to immerse individuals in tactical scenarios, employing Lessons Identified from Theatre, has been invaluable.”
