WARGAMING experts at NSC are set to provide “high-level support” to NATO Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (ARRC) training serials through the provision of synthetic eyes in the sky.

Arming exercising headquarters staff with the ability to conduct detailed ground reconnaissance and track time-sensitive targets, the simulation specialists will use the latest in game-based technology to replicate the vital intelligence feeds provided by air and remotely-piloted air system platforms on military operations.

The real-time, full-motion video produced by NSC’s virtual manned and unmanned aircraft will be generated by personnel via air system stations comprising two screens – one displaying the view from the airframe’s electro-optical and infrared camera and the other a geographical information system.
Operators can use the latter to track the location of the air system and direction of its camera and to plot its course.
Distributed remote viewing terminals will allow users across multiple headquarters to view one or more feeds simultaneously by selecting from the list available.

NSC’s expertise in the utilisation of Virtual Battlespace 2 will enable ARRC to conduct its synthetic surveillance sorties above large, customisable 3D terrains and deliver authentic training without the significant expense of scrambling real aircraft.

Chris Williams, Head of Simulation at NSC, said: “Over the last three years we have provided ISTAR [intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance] synthetic support to a number of British Army exercises and we look forward to assisting the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps in delivering effective and value-for-money training to its personnel.”


NSC is a world-class provider of cutting-edge simulation and analysis-driven training. Since its formation in 1991, the company has forged a reputation for developing and delivering innovative solutions for military and civilian customers around the globe.
