Training Can Be Conducted Remotely Over Networks
Boeing has connected the F-15E
Mission Training Center (MTC) at Mountain Home Air Force Base,
Idaho, to the U.S. Air Force's Distributed Mission Operations
Network (DEMON), enabling F-15E pilots at the base to train
virtually with pilots located around the world for the first time.
Mountain Home is the first of three F-15E training centers Boeing
will link to the network this year.
Distributed Missions Operations (DMO) provides an advanced
training environment where simulators, flown by front-line aircrew,
are linked via the DEMON from their home bases.
"This new capability allows F-15E
aircrews to train in an environment that mimics their
integrated operational environment," said Mark McGraw, Boeing
vice president for Training Systems and Services. "It provides
realistic training at a fraction of the cost of live-fly training
exercises, which require you to bring all of your personnel and
aircraft together in one location."
Boeing is scheduled to complete its next two
DMO installations at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, N.C., and
Royal Air Force Lakenheath MTCs this fall.
"DMO adds the variability that human beings can bring to the
training scenario, providing a much more realistic training
experience than with computer-generated entities alone," added
The Boeing-developed and -operated F-15E MTC provides aircrews
with high-fidelity, simulator-based training without the materials,
personnel costs and environmental impact associated with training
in operational aircraft.
