L-3 Link Simulation & Training specializes in intelligent training solutions across civil and military fields. The company has supplied the AVCATT (aviation combined arms tactical trainer) system to the U.S. Army at 11 training sites, each suite comprising six reconfigurable simulators, a battle master control room and an after-action review theater. The system provides network-based multi-player training exercises, from basic flying to complex operational scenarios.
To extend the system to cover the Airbus Helicopters UH-72A Lakota, L-3 Link has received an initial order to add the type to one AVCATT system. Four Lakota simulated platforms are to be added to the AVCATT suite at McEntire Joint National Guard base near Eastover, South Carolina. L-3 Link hopes that this order will be followed by those for the other AVCATT suites, for a maximum of 44 new Lakota platforms.
