MAK Technologies (MAK), a company of ST Engineering North America, yesterday announced that the MAK ONE suite of simulation software, including VR-Forces, has
been selected for use in Pakistan Air Force’s (PAF) simulators for tactical training. VR-Forces will provide the Computer Generated Forces (CGF) platform to generate Air, Land, Surface, and Sub-surface forces in PAF’s Project Vision’s large-scale synthetic battlefield environment, as part of its Composite Simulation Centre.
The Operations Research, Modelling, and Simulations Department of Project Vision is responsible for the development of virtual and constructive simulators, including simulators for PAF fighter aircraft, surface-to-air missiles, radars, Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) systems, Command & Control (C2) systems, Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR), Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC), and Air Traffic Control (ATC) systems. These simulators are fully interoperable over the DIS protocol.
The Composite Simulation Centre is Project Vision’s most recent effort to integrate these simulators and build a large-scale battlefield simulation environment. VR-Forces provide the tools for scenario generation in the simulated battlefield environment and are extendible through software development kits for customization and further development of user-required features.
MAK ONE’s modular, open-systems architecture also allows flexibility in system design that will enable PAF to build on top of the MAK software to meet future or evolving requirements
