Using the deployable, highly portable Nautilus COBRA JTAC screen, VBS3 and VBS Fires FST software, Nautilus International Risk Consultants are providing a new, unrivalled capability in the UK. Using Form, Fit and Function emulated JTAC equipment, such as the LF28 LTD, PLRF25, IZLID Ultra and Harris Communications 7800HH radios with 7800Tdownlink receivers, the system can be fully set up and ready for use within 2 hours. All of the JTAC simulation scenarios and terrain are based on real world locations, both in the UK and overseas. This allows the qualified JTAC to train in a realistic and demanding, simulated environment.

Nautilus International Risk Consultants has worked tirelessly with its suppliers Cobra Simulation, Bohemia Interactive Simulations, SimCentric, Virtual Simulation Systems and Harris Communication Systems, to provide this very unique capability to JTACs in the UK. This will allow JTAC training to be conducted in almost any location and will enable re-qualification, maintain JTAC skill sets and ultimately, significantly reduce training overheads.We are currently providing simulated JTAC training support to a large number of UK MoD JTACs and recently supported the UK JTAC Concentration at RAF Honington, which saw JTACs from the UK, US and Canada and have also provided JTAC simulation training to the Bahrain Royal Guard JTACs.

Alexander Bradley Managing Director at Cobra Simulation said “Receiving the news that the platform has now received accreditation was great, supporting the team at Nautilus International Risk Consultants has been very rewarding. It’s a great example of what can be achieved when you have a capable and experienced team delivering on a much needed tool. We see training simulation as our key growth market and look forward to supporting the roll out.”
