CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, 5 Jan. 2015. Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is introducing the RealFires transportable simulation and training device to help commanders from several different military services concentrate weapons firing effectively against the enemy.

The RealFires simulator for joint fires operators is a high-fidelity, scalable rapidly deployable training system contained in three cases for the controller, the instructor, and an optional role player. The training system sets up in minutes and is easy to use and edit, company officials say.

"RealFires delivers immersive training that integrates the trainee's operational equipment, enabling cost-training that develops the instinctive responses required to control joint fires and effects," says LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president and general manager of Simulation Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins.

RealFires uses the Rockwell Collins Rosetta Technology, which powers the U.S. Air Force's Tactical Air Control Party Close Air Support System (TACP-CASS). Air Force Joint Terminal Attack Controllers use TACP-CASS for digitally aided close-air support.

TACP-CASS is an all-inclusive, digital machine-to-machine close-air-support and surface-to-surface field artillery targeting system that ties off to command and control systems such as the Theater Battle Management Control System, Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System, and the Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below, company officials say.
