Designed to meet the demanding requirements of LVC training exercises.
The FLAMES Automated Simulation Trainer (FAST™) is a turn-key, commercially-available simulation developed by Ternion specifically to serve as the central constructive simulation in a live-virtual-constructive (LVC) training exercise. FAST also provides a powerful yet extremely friendly graphical user interface for automatically creating scenarios from standard military data sources and for controlling simulated entities during scenario execution.
Flexible, versatile, and configurable, FAST can be embedded in operational command and control systems to provide deployable, individual unit training, and it can also support large, multi-unit distributed, interactive training exercises.
FAST and the FLAMES Engine
FAST is an individual FLAMES-based application that is designed specifically to meet the demanding requirements of live-virtual-constructive (LVC) training exercises. As such, FAST includes features and capabilities that go beyond those provided by the FLAMES Engine. However, a license to FAST includes a license to each of the standard Engine applications, FORGE, FIRE, and FLASH, as well as a runtime license to several Engine optional products (Analysis, DIS, HLA, and Checkpoint/Restart).
The following is a brief description of how FAST uses and extends the capabilities of the FLAMES Engine.
