General Dynamics Information Technology has completed military operations on urban terrain (MOUT) instrumentation at the state-of-the-art King Abdullah II special operations training centre (KASOTC) in Jordan.
Located north-east of Amman, the KASOTC MOUT site provides the US Army and allied forces with a real-life urban environment training scenario, with facilities for four simultaneous operations.
The site includes 56 training buildings and a mock A300 aircraft fuselage; a centralised and integrated range operations centre to monitor and control all audio, video, special effects and target technology.
It also provides networked day / night thermal cameras with 360° coverage to capture exercises for after-action review.
The contract was awarded by the US Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation in 2006.
General Dynamics Information Technology’s army solutions division senior vice president Zannie Smith said that providing realistic and high-quality training is paramount to successful combat readiness.
