  • 4. HALF-DAY POST-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP 5th February 2014 Marriott Regents Park, London, UK 9.00-12.30pm The Forward Air Controller – a case study into the use of Immersive Simulation to augment the existing training model HOSTED BY: Overview: The requirement for Forward Air Controllers (FAC) has been defined over the past 10 years by Operational need and has been specifically theatre focused. The FAC has proven to be one of the most expensive human assets to train and maintain in the current Force Mix. We now are faced with a move from war fighting to contingent operations in an environment where resources are scarce and procurement decisions face severe scrutiny. How do we change our approach to training, meeting existing needs whilst also addressing future requirements such as Digitally aided CAS, increased use of Full Motion Video, exploitation of Air Assets and non-permissive theatres of operation? How can simulation assist in delivering best of class FACs in an economic, efficient and effective manner to be fully prepared for tomorrow’s battlefield? Agenda: 8.30 Registration & Coffee 9.00 Introduction • Scope of the problem and an overview of Ab initio FAC training • Current focus on Live training and the challenges and costs associated with simulation systems • Accreditation issues and high overheads associated with National FAC Schools • Maintenance and development of FAC post Schoolhouse 09.45 Simulation vs Live Controls • The reluctance to increase use of simulation • Maturity of simulators, fidelity, form fit function kit, wrap around domes and next generation VR headsets • Military / Commercial Pilots established model 10.30 Coffee 10.45 Training for Tomorrow’s Battlefield • Lessons learnt from History • Advancement in surface to air systems, implementation of DACAS, exploitation of Net-Centric Warfare etc. • Increased use of AH and UAV into training model. • Developing non-permissive tactics with limited access to EW ranges and emulators 11.30 Commercial Model • Challenging the existing model and transferring risk away from Military • Training at the point of need • Consistency of white force • Aircraft Simulator instructor model and the barriers to this model • Maintaining the expertise and Meeting changing training needs 12.00 Summary of Workshop - Q and A 12.30 End of Workshop About the workshop host Tom Ball, Technical Director, Close Air Solutions Ltd After his operational tours as a Tornado GR4 pilot, Tom Ball was selected to become an instructor at the UK's Joint Forward Air Controller Training and Standards Unit (JFACTSU) where he trained most of the UKs current serving FACs, Special Forces and foreign students and has advised most of the UK's aircrew training establishments on best practice close air support tactics. During his tenure as Chief Instructor he was recognised in the Queens Birthday Honours for his transformative work in Air-Land simulation and as the UK's subject matter expert in Air-Land simulation, he transitioned to the Flight Simulation and Synthetic Training (FSaST) team at UK Defence Equipment and Support. Tom left the RAF in 2013 to Co- found Close Air Solutions. His unique combination of first hand tactical experience, instructional background, and simulation expertise, make him a pivotal member of the team.
