Fire Support Combined Arms Tactical Trainer

Definition/Scope: (PEO STRI) The Fire Support Combined Arms Tactical Trainer (FSCATT) was developed as a high fidelity simulator that enables the training of M109A5/A6 howitzer crews, Fire Direction Center (FDC), Platoon Operation Center (POC) personnel and Forward Observers (FO). The system has the following three modes of operation: stand-alone, interactive and closed-loop. The stand-alone mode allows each element (Howitzer Crew, FDC and FO) to train independently. The interactive mode links the FDC and the Howitzer Crew Trainer (HCT). The closed-loop mode is the interaction of the HCT, FDC and the FO nodes under the control of the closed-loop controller. FSCATT simulates all functions of M109A5/A6 self-propelled howitzers. It provides training for the entire gunnery team in stand-alone, interactive and closed-loop modes.
