MAK Technologies Selected to Provide Common Simulation Software System for Australian Army’s Land Simulation (LS) Core 2.0 Program

MAK ONE — The simulation platform and network infrastructure to create realistic multi-domain synthetic environments

“We are committed to the Australian Defense Force to help develop the modeling and simulation industry in Australia.”

MAK Technologies (MAK), an ST Engineering North America company, today announced that the MAK ONE product range has been selected to provide the common simulation software system for the Australian Army’s Land Systems (LS) Core 2.0 program.

MAK has partnered with Australian company Applied Virtual Simulation (AVS) to deliver a solution for LS Core 2.0 that maximizes Australian content while offering a suite of mature COTS products.

LS Core 2.0 will deploy a scalable and persistent land simulation system accessible on demand and when needed to meet future Australian Army training requirements. By providing a suite of common simulation software (CSS), users can achieve enhanced data warehouse functions; interoperability with ground command systems and C3ISREW (command, control, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, communications and electronic warfare); and an expanded Land Simulation Network (LSN) for national and coalition training.

CSS includes three packages: Common Virtual Simulation, Common Constructive Toolset, and Common Image Builder. The MAK ONE product suite meets the requirements of all three packages; using VR-Forces for the application of computer-generated forces and constructive simulation; VR-Engage for virtual simulation; and VR-Vantage for the image generator. MAK ONE will also support all levels of simulation fidelity, including high and medium fidelity simulators, desktop trainers, and part-task trainers.

With a common set of simulation modules used across all future Australian Army training systems, interoperability can be facilitated from the training of commanders and their staff at brigade level to company level. , the training of crew members of armored vehicles, up to the training of individual war fighters to carry out their specific mission. roles. MAK ONE modules include open, standards-based terrain, simulation, behavior, and rendering engines.

This software, managed and deployed by AVS, will be a core component of the Persistent Ground Simulation System (PLSS) and all simulators and trainers that will be part of the PLSS. It will be fully compliant with the Generic Simulation Architecture Australia (GSimA).

“We are committed to the Australian Defense Force to help grow the modeling and simulation industry in Australia,” said Bill Cole, CEO and Chairman of MAK Technologies. “We are honored to partner with AVS to support the Australian Army’s constructive and virtual training needs and enhance its current land simulation capabilities with our modular suite of simulation and training software.”

“AVS selected MAK ONE as the cornerstone of our solution for Land Simulation Core 2.0. The MAK ONE software suite provides the most comprehensive suite of simulation software and interoperability tools, which will enable the Australian military to achieve networked and distributed training effects to an extent not previously available. possible before,” said Martin Carr, Director and Founder of AVS. “AVS’s Newcastle-based engineering team will work with MAK Technologies to develop the software suite to meet the needs of the military, including the development of high-fidelity geo-specific terrain databases of areas of army training, 3D content and doctrinal behaviors.
