Aimed at arming those who will be controlling intelligence assets on operations with the tactics and technical know-how to hit the ground running, the simulation allows users to control a wide range of sensor types to monitor a fully-customisable virtual environment.

Whether viewing “live” video feeds from a nearby forward operating base or reconnaissance UAV circling overhead or communicating with a patrol commander out on the ground, the system replicates the hi-tech surveillance equipment found in and around British bases overseas.
