AVT Simulation Training Center Course Offerings
AVT has developed and designed a one-of-a-kind training program that begins with fundamental simulation development theories and progresses through hands-on technologies and approaches. Our Simulation courses use our AVT staff who have experience and expertise in building simulators and simulator components from the ground up along with real-world instruction experience. The Bootcamp courses include a series of two, four-day courses that provide a sequenced learning experience, that begins with the Introduction to the Fundamentals of Simulation and Training and segueing into multi-faceted and increasingly complex concepts such as visual system design, human perceptions, the simulation environment, control loading and motion bases, visual database, modeling, and component integration.
Simulation Overview examines the major components of a simulator from a top-level and describes how the components fit together to produce an immersive training solution. This course targets those who are new to simulator design and development as well as those who are more knowledgeable and are seeking a comprehensive view of the full training solution. General principles of the simulation are studied in this class to include common visual solutions, human-machine interfaces, and aspects of simulation support such as concurrency, maintenance, and security.
Visual Simulation explores Visual System Design and the Synthetic Environment. Visual System Design examines image generation (IGs), image projection, display systems, image alignment, user points of view, and other visual system concepts. The Synthetic Environment introduces computer-generated forces (CGF) and semi-automated forces (SAF), instructor operating station (IOS) and after-action review (AAR) solutions. Simulation control, scenarios, decision engines, and other ways of controlling what the simulation trainee views during a simulation are reviewed.
