ASTi Fields New Equipment at XVIII Airborne Corps Battle Command Training Center

Advanced Simulation Technology inc. (ASTi - Herndon, VA) presence at premier U.S. Army training facilities continues to grow in 2007. The latest in a growing list of Battle Command Training Center (BCTC) installations took place in February at the XVIII Airborne Corps BCTC headquartered at Ft. Bragg, NC. The contract was awarded by General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT), which manages the facility for the Army.

ASTi delivered a total of 14 Synapse platforms and one Telestra Remote Management System (RMS) to service the Brigade Command Team (BCT) Reconfigurable Tactical Operations Center (RTOC) and Battalion 1 & 2 RTOCs located in adjacent buildings.

Two Synapse Radio-to-Network bridges allow the BCTC to bring live voice traffic from up to 16 real SINCGARS radios onto the simulation network for interaction with multiple staff operators. Twelve (12) Synapse Workstation systems provide up to 84 virtual radio operator positions, as well as 12 simulated SINCGARS radio stations. The Telestra RMS platform allows system administrators to monitor, configure and control all the BCTC Synapse systems from any web browser on the network.

The XVIII Airborne Corps is the Army's largest warfighting organization, and its BCTC "conducts formal courses of instruction to enhance staff interoperability proficiency within a digital TOC." ASTi provided on-site installation, testing and training over two weeks as part of a full customer support package.
