The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) has selected MAK Technologies (MAK)’s MAK ONE suite of simulation software for tactical training.
Included in the MAK ONE software is MAK’s VR-Forces, which aims to provide the Computer-Generated Forces (CGF) platform to generate Air, Land, Surface, and Sub-surface forces in PAF’s Project Vision’s large-scale synthetic battlefield environment, as part of its Composite Simulation Center.
The Operations Research, Modelling and Simulations Department of Project Vision is responsible for the development of virtual and constructive simulators, including simulators for PAF fighter aircraft, surface to air missiles, radars, Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) systems, Command & Control (C2) systems, Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR), Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC), and Air Traffic Control (ATC) systems. These simulators are fully interoperable over DIS protocol.
The Composite Simulation Center is Project Vision’s most recent effort to integrate these simulators and build a large-scale battlefield simulation environment.
VR-Forces provides the tools for scenario generation in the simulated battlefield environment and is extendible through software development kits for customization and further development of user-required features.
MAK ONE’s modular, open-systems architecture also allows flexibility in system design that will enable PAF to build on top of the MAK software to meet future or evolving requirements.
