Air Force

The U.S. Air Force (USAF) recently renewed 384 VRSG licenses and five Terrain Tools licenses for the A-10 Full Mission Trainer (FMT) program. Since 2001, MetaVR has been the primary supplier of 3D real-time visuals for the A-10 Full Mission Trainer (FMT) used in the A-10 Aircrew Training System. The USAF uses VRSG to equip new and existing sites with networked training systems that train U.S. pilots for close air support missions in conjunction with JTAC simulators.

An A-10 FMT uses MetaVR visuals for the out-the-window and sensor views and consists of a high-fidelity replica of an A-10 aircraft cockpit, an Instructor Operator Station, a visual system and other equipment that provides trainees initial and ongoing training for flight, mission and tactics.

Ten sites have one or more MetaVR-based A-10 FMT simulators: Baltimore Air National Guard Base (ANGB), Maryland; Barksdale Air Force Base (AFB), Louisiana; Boise ANGB, Gowan Field, Idaho; Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona; Ft. Smith ANGB, Arkansas; Ft. Wayne ANGB, Indiana; Moody AFB, Georgia; Osan AB, Korea; Selfridge ANGB, Mississippi; and Whiteman AFB, Missouri.
