Embedded training F35

Some questions about embedded training in the Air.
In simulation a pilot is still on the ground, but embedded, more realistic,
could this result in more changes not being aware what’s real and what’s not?


Simulation is in the air: embedded training promises to boost the realism and efficiency of simulated air combat, while cutting costs. By Hans Heerkens
- Four pages about Embedded Training

Contract NLR

Amsterdam, 7 October 2009 - Today Lockheed Martin signed a 18.8 million US$ contract with Dutch Space and NLR for the development of a multi-ship, embedded training system for the F-35 Lightning II, known as the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).
Dutch Space and NLR, the National Aerospace Laboratory in the Netherlands, will execute the contract in an Integrated Project Team (IPT) which will lead to the initial implementation of embedded training in Block 3 aircraft in 2011.
The embedded training system - providing multi-ship interaction, local and distributed weapons simulation, data link, data collection and off-board debriefing - is expected to become a standard feature in the F-35.

Tom Burbage, Executive Vice President of Lockheed Martin and General Manager of the F-35 Program: "Today I am here to celebrate the 90th anniversary of this great aerospace research institute, the NLR.
It gives me great pleasure to also witness the signing of the contract for the embedded training system, adding a unique feature to the F-35 Weapon System. A system that proves how jointly NLR and Dutch Space have been successful in bringing their innovative ideas into advanced training reality.
I have personally flown the Dutch F-16 Development aircraft, and I look forward to the day that this capability is installed in the F-35".

JADE – An Experiment in Distributed Simulation Based Joint Tactical Training

http://195.251.96.5/NATO/EreunaKaiTexno ... 045-18.pdf (1.2Mb)

"ABSTRACT
JADE, or Joint Air Defence Training Simulation, was an experiment conducted in Norway in March 2006
to explore whether connecting existing training simulators and operational systems is a suitable tool for
joint tactical training. The embedded training capability of a Control and Reporting Centre, a naval
tactical trainer and game-based fighter simulators located at three different sites were connected over a
secure wide area network. Additionally, JADE was a test case for a simulation infrastructure in support of
training and experimentation developed by FFI. An overview of the joint tactical training prototype
capability established for JADE is given. It consists of three main parts; a distributed simulation system, a
command and control system and tactical data links, and a voice communication system. A brief outline of
the experimental training event is given, and both operational and technical experiences are discussed."

Aircrew Mission Training Via Distributed Simulation – A NATO Study

http://ftp.rta.nato.int/public//PubFull ... 071-17.pdf (166Kb)

"1 Background
This paper is about the future potential in NATO of Aircrew Mission Training via
Distributed Simulation, or MTDS. A Military Applications Study (known as SAS-
013) on MTDS has just concluded, having been sponsored by the NATO Research &
Technology Organisation (RTO)1, through its Studies, Analysis and Simulation (SAS)
Panel. The study report will be published shortly. The task of the study was
“To assess the potential of advanced distributed simulation to complement live
flying training in order to enhance NATO capability to conduct combined air
operations.”

This could be re-phrased as “How can NATO apply recent improvements in
distributed simulation technology to enhance current and future NATO training for air
operations?” Note that, according to NATO definitions (source: NATO AAP-6),
Combined Operations are defined as operations between two or more forces or
agencies of two or more allies. Joint is defined as activities, operations, organisations,
etc., in which elements of more than one service of the same nation participate."

Thanks, didn’t know about ET, interesting …
Suppose a combination of simulation and ET has a great value also planning and training in case of a real mission.
As far as understand this Nato article ET can be done with a combination of real weapons as well

Nato article about ET (10 pages):
(Don`t know to copy the link?)

Search for: F-35 Embedded Training
(Nato Otan)
Built into F-35 is an Embedded Training (ET) capability that supports core missions such as counterair, air strike/interdiction, and suppression of enemy ...

Quote article: ET is becoming a key component of the total training system for the next generation of tactical aircraft.
Over the expected life cycle of calendar years 2013 through 2057, the program savings could reach $2,976M.

m, I'll search for the link. The 'BEEN CAN'Ters' :-) need to see this quote: "Over the expected life cycle of calendar years 2013 through 2057, the program savings could reach $2,976M". WHOA DUDE!

The .DOC file is here: http://ftp.rta.nato.int/public//PubFull ... 169-02.doc

Made a PDF from it now attached.

"ABSTRACT
The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of Embedded Training (ET) in the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). This paper will cover early ET concept development, the implementation of ET in JSF, now F-35 Lightning II, the pilot perspective of the ET training syllabus, and future development of F-35 ET. In the JSF concept development phase the training system solution included the deployable training device and added ET training capability built into the aircraft. ET was brought to the forefront with fighter pilots’ heavy involvement in extended periods of aircraft deployment to international theaters of war. During these periods fighter pilots were away from continuation training opportunities. In response, the JSF training system concept integrated the ET Virtual Training Model (VTM) in the synthetic training environments to support “anywhere/anytime” interactive combat training while in-flight.

The objective of F-35 ET is to enhance and maintain fighter pilot proficiency. ET is implemented by functionally partitioning the aircraft integrated core processor (ICP). ET consists of the VTM hosted in the ICP and the P5 Combat Training System (CTS) contained in P5 Internal Subsystem (IS). Both VT and P5 CTS provide brief and debrief capabilities.

From the pilot perspective, VT is an overlay of constructive simulation on the real world to provide an enhanced training environment to the pilot. VT mission planning data is inserted in the aircraft via the preloaded portable memory device (PMD). A coordinated data link distribution of VT provides synchronization between a four-ship flight of F-35 aircraft. Pilots may train to a coordinated attack against virtual targets with appropriate threat reactions and kill responses that are shared across participants. All participating aircraft follow the same realistic, virtual pre-planned training scenario. Following the event, the pilot takes the PMD back to off-board mission support for debriefing. The result is combat team training in live flight supplemented and enhanced by a virtual combat environment."

Thanks again. (By the way learned a lot from your explanations! :lol: )

For some readers a better copy about savings:

11.0 ET COST AVOIDANCE
Implementation of the F-35 ET activity model has projected program savings shown in Table 1. In terms of student costs, the projection reduction is 14 Red Air sorties, equivalent to 23.8 flight hours for $100k, and SAM/EW range reductions of 7.2 hours for $25.5k. Looking at start up, calendar years 2015 through 2017, the projected cost avoidance is $411.5M. When the F-35 reaches steady state at calendar year 2030, the projected cost avoidance is $1,046M. Over the expected life cycle of calendar years 2013 through 2057, the program savings could reach $2,976M.

Training for the War on Terror November 2007 MILITARY & AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS
By Courtney E. Howard [MUCH, much MORE in the PDF article - only F-35 relevant text here]

ftp://64.14.13.138/others/MAE/MAE_20071 ... v_2007.pdf (4Mb)

"Military personnel throughout the ranks hone their skills with advanced training and simulation systems....

...Cubic Defense Applications, the defense division of Cubic Corp. in San Diego, is developing a military training and simulation solution that will be embedded directly in military aircraft.

Executives at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Co. in Fort Worth, Texas, have awarded a $50.3 million development contract to Cubic Defense Applications, maker of realistic combat training systems, mission support services, and defense electronics. According to the contract award, Cubic engineers will design an embedded version of the company’s latest air-combat training system and integrate it into the F-35 Lightning II, more commonly referred to as the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).

"The F-35 Internal Subsystem will be integrated in the aircraft as an embedded feature, like an avionics system,” explains Philip J. Fisch, senior director of business development for Air Ranges at Cubic Defense Applications. “The subsystem is interoperable with P5 training systems now being produced, so fighter pilots using podbased or embedded P5 systems will be able to train with F-35 pilots.”

The airborne training instrumentation will be installed in all F-35 stealth fighters, enabling military personnel to develop and hone skills virtually anywhere, anytime. The F-35 Lightning II will replace several aircraft types in the United States, as well as the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, and Turkey.

Cubic engineers will deliver five prototypes based on the company’s podbased P5 Combat Training System/Tactical Combat Training System technology. The embedded training solution will encompass airborne instrumentation, ground station planning, and debrief software. Cubic’s Individual Combat Aircrew Display System software, also part of the F-35 combat training system, will be hosted on Lockheed Martin’s Offboard Mission Subsystem. An encrypted and exportable data link will, for the first time, be included in the Cubic air combat training system.

Cubic and its technology partners—DRS Technologies Inc. of Fort Walton Beach, Fla., and FAAC of Ann Arbor, Mich.—will loosely design the new F-35 Internal Subsystem around the P5 Internal Subsystem developed for the Navy/Marine Corps F/A-18 Hornet and AV-8B Harrier combat aircraft. FAAC engineers will help Cubic personnel develop weapons simulations for the F-35.

Cubic’s air combat training system for the F-35 will represent a breakthrough in air combat training technology, says Walter J. Zable, Cubic Corp.’s chairman and chief executive officer. “It will be the first air combat training system installed in a fifth-generation aircraft that has the airborne components for tracking and recording weapons engagements placed in the aircraft itself,” Zable says...."

LVC is mentioned a few times in a few places on this forum now so I thought to give this thread a bump. USN goes LVC big time - probably.
Live, virtual, and constructive community talks real plans at NAWCWD
16 Apr 2015 NAWCWD Public Affairs

"Senior Navy leadership attended a two-day workshop held by Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD) in January aimed at uniting the live, virtual and constructive (LVC) community....

...Since LVC technology isn’t exclusively owned, a customer looking for an LVC product might fund a similar project that is already underway elsewhere. Even successful projects can become too complex for a single organization to move forward under its own workforce and budget.

"Here's a great example and something that excites me about NAWCWD and China Lake," said Rear Adm. Michael Manazir, director Air Warfare. "We already own a lot of this stuff; it's here. So let's look at LVC for what it is. It isn't just some software program. It's a concept. And that concept only exists when we take all our current activities and bring them together."...

...LVC elements are a cost-effective solution for developing and testing emerging technologies and critical in helping to train warfighters for the complex challenges that they might face in real-life combat situations.

Director of NAVAIR’s battlespace simulation department Amy Markowich delivered closing statements: “The next steps are to develop a Naval Enterprise alignment of LVC capabilities and strategically partner with other system commands and their associated warfare centers. This will enable an operationally-realistic assessment environment to ensure naval warfighters have quality integrated system of systems that work in the mission they require.”

Link-16 has aircrew surrounded at NAWCWD
16 Apr 2015 NAWCWD Public Affairs

"On Nov. 25, 2014, three F/A-18s lifted off the runway at Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD) and located eight, Russian SU-27 planes via radar in China Lake's airspace.

The F/A-18 radars and radar warning receivers picked up the movements and speeds of the approaching aircraft - successfully completing the live, virtual and constructive (LVC) test.

Although no actual adversary planes ever entered China Lake airspace, the F/A-18 aircrew would never know the difference. According to F/A-18 Training Systems Technical Program Office Lead Dale Colangelo, presenting this information was no easy feat.

Colangelo and a group of NAWCWD engineers worked with the F/A-18E/F & EA-18G Advanced Weapons Laboratory and Boeing to develop the capability that inserts constructive entities into the F/A-18's crew station. The result was the transmission of constructive targets over Link-16.

Link-16 allows data to be packaged and sent into flying F/A-18s through a data link network. It provides real-time information and can be used to transmit simulated attacks generated by a ground station. This capability enables an instructor to pose a customizable variety of pre-programmed threats against the training aircrew.

"The progress is huge," said Colangelo. "We are starting on a potential path where our aircrew can train against enemy air threats for a fraction of the cost. This type of technology could eventually be used to train aircrew anywhere around the world."

Colangelo expressed the importance of incorporating entities into live runs. They save time, fuel and are a more effective training method since the constructive entity can take the form of any type of enemy air threat.

Link-16 currently supports up to eight virtual and constructive entities, which intuitively carry out flight routes and tactics through any type of geographic environment.

"Unit level LVC training is a small step toward a much larger Navy LVC training capability," said Colangelo. "The next step is to deliver this or some similar capability to the warfighter."

VX-31 and VX-9 squadrons currently use tactical operational flight trainers at NAWCWD to maintain flight qualifications, conduct mission rehearsals and familiarize themselves with the latest F/A-18 software in development. Lower-cost LVC flight hours could help maintain F/A-18 qualifications based on the Navy's test and readiness matrix."

Taking it a step further and out of the LVC environment, it seems to imply that said F-18 may one day be able to directly benefit from the COP generated by F-35 sensor fusion.
Also, an interesting spoofing scenario if you manage to compromise enemy networks and all sorts of weird threats start appearing on their radar screens.

Rockwell Collins successfully demonstrates the first Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) training exercise with certified MILS
19 May 2015 RC PR

"CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (May 19, 2015) – With military officials in attendance, Rockwell Collins performed the first successful Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) air combat training flight using production JSAS (Joint Secure Air combat training System) equipment. The form, fit, function production equipment includes Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) encryption in both the airborne and ground systems.

“JSAS is the next generation of secure, LVC-capable training solutions, providing seamless interoperability between 5th generation F-35 and legacy aircraft as they train together in coalition events,” said Tommy Dodson, vice president and general manager of Surface Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “This exercise highlighted that 5th-Gen and 4th-Gen aircraft pilots can both see significant training benefit when simulating a high threat combat environment.”

The exercise used production form-factor equipment from the Common Range Integrated Instrumentation System (CRIIS) program, both the MILS airborne package and MILS ground station. The CRIIS program implements the DoD’s vision of common test and training infrastructure for improved operational realism.

The multi-level, secure connection of Live, Virtual and Constructive participants is the critical link needed to increase the depth and density of combat training. This capability brings the warfighter red flag experience without the logistics challenge of collocating assets and provides real-time feedback to limit negative training. In addition, the demonstration included over-the-air reloading of keys on the fly, demonstrating how military customers could change from one training scenario to another without landing the aircraft.

The LVC demonstration included:
A live Aero L-29 jet trainer with the JSAS equipment onboard, emulating a 5th-Gen F-35 fighter, operated by the University of Iowa Operator Performance Lab (OPL) in Iowa

• A virtual F/A-18 4th-Gen aircraft simulator, operating as the wingman for the Aero L-29 pilot, at the Rockwell Collins Advanced Technology Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

• A live Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) located at the Rockwell Collins facility in Orlando, Fla.

• Constructive “Red Force” aircraft and ground threats, generated by Department of Defense Computer Generated Forces (CGF) tools

• Separate “mission rooms” for live monitor of F-35 and F-18 data, showing MILS separation

Dodson added, “This LVC exercise demonstrates that the key technologies from the CRIIS program are real. The MILS architecture and equipment are real, and certified. The software-defined datalink is real, and it has five times more network throughput than existing training systems to handle the LVC traffic. You can see significantly higher training fidelity than with the current generation systems, and we even reconfigured it while in flight to get 2½ hours of training value in a 1½ hour flight. The demo shows that the training benefit is real, the equipment is real, and it is available right now. LVC on production form, fit, function equipment is finally here.”
