Collins Aerospace’s RealFires™ joint fires and effects simulator offers an integrated set of capabilities that allows joint terminal attack controllers (JTACs) to train for certification and rehearse missions. It provides a high-fidelity, scalable training solution, designed by JTACs for joint fires operators.

The simulator features realistic integration of ground vehicles, field artillery, naval gunfire, aircraft, unmanned aircraft systems and LVC simulations to present holistic scenarios for trainees.

No other system can bring the realism and immersion of all these elements, and the actual original equipment manufacturer software and hardware together into one training system

Role-player areas provide high-fidelity pilot stations and reconfigurable support roles. The system includes classrooms for pre-mission briefing and live viewing. After-action capabilities include a full set of virtual, video and audio playback capabilities to analyze and critique missions.

RealFires transportable

Joint fires operators work within a complex battlespace that requires rapid coordination and swift execution to ensure mission success. 

Our RealFires™ transportable trainer is a low-cost, rapidly deployable joint-fires simulator. This scalable training system contains up to three cases for the trainee, the instructor and the optional role player (pilot, UAS, JFO, etc). Additional cases can be networked together to enable large team training and mission rehearsal. Teams now have the ability to train and rehearse using their actual targeting, call for fire, or digital close air support software and hardware.
