Video – Raytheon’s First Person Shooter

A (poorly recorded) video of Raytheon’s demonstration at AUSA of the company’s Counter IED trainer — a full-immersion simulation that the company has developed for squad-level training of troops in a highly realistic, 3-D environment that physically stresses them in similar ways to actual patrols.

Sorry for the quality — this was recorded on an iPod Nano.

Afghan Army and Police get a helo simulator

A bit of propaganda from the Armed Forces Network: a video on the delivery of anMi-17 flight simulator.

The simulator, from Bucharest-based Simultec, is an Mi-17 Full Mission Simulator (FMS). It will give Afghan pilots the ability to train under a wide range of simulated conditions to prepare them for flying counter-narcotics and military operations. Whether this gives them a “technological edge over the bad guys” as the report says or not, it will undoubtedly save the lives of pilots and their trainers. The US bought the $4.5 million system, which was installed at the international airport at Kabul.

The US has been providing training for Afghan Mi-17 pilots for some time. As an old Cold Warrior, the irony of that is not lost on me.
