for 30 years one orlando facility has been essential and improving training for the US Armed Forces and preparing them for battle we’re talking about the Naval Air warefare training system division that’s a mouthful and that’s where 1300 engineers scientists and support personnel help develop training programs for the army the Air Force the Marine Corps and the Coast Guard as well as many federal state and local agencies and they are using some pretty high-tech simulators these days new six at 9s Karolina Cardona is there right now and Karolina you got an inside look at one of these simulators that’s right this is actually the building we’re inside all of this technology happens this is where it’s developed high technology for in order to prepare sailors and men and women who are going to serve our country and get them ready to go out to work either on a fleet on a Navy ship or inside a submarine we got an up-close look at a three-day simulator that the Navy uses for training and it’s not only preparing sailors but it’s also helping them doing it do it in a way that’s going to avoid a mistake that could cause the Navy big money with the use of both hands on a touchscreen and by sliding one two or three fingers students learn how to prepare for a mission in this scenario it’s preparing them how to successfully launch a torpedo they learn everything from tube loading tube unloading indexing level changing launching both in horizontal and in vertical launch this is so real that they’re using it in the fleet for different certifications and mission setups it’s called the multi-purpose reconfigurable training system and it’s a 3d program that simulates different scenes here it’s virtually placing junior sailors inside a Virginia class submarine these applications just on on your safe home computer you go from outlook to excel to to a game and back to PowerPoint we can jump from one application to another we had a chance to try out this high-tech system that also includes training using virtual reality goggles when I put them on I was transported into a torpedo room virginia-class load up 212 vertical weapons and for horizontal offense at the same time so if the 16 weapons combination of Tomahawk missiles and advocate for PTO’s you can have 16 of them loaded at any particular time Orlando is that as a global home a military simulation and training currently our folks provide simulators for and other training devices across the host of Navy warfighting areas commanding officer Captain Eric ATS is an f-18 pilot he recalls the importance this training facility had after September 11th 2001 he had to fly in patrol missions out on the west coast of the United States I was prepared to do those missions because the training that I received from folks that provide devices right here from Central Florida for the Navy we have been essentially in supporting combat operations since 9/11 2001 as we provide readiness for the fleet we ensure that our people are trained and able to meet the requirements of their missions and that they’re ready to fight the Naval Air Warfare Center training division also supports aircrafts ships submarines like we already mentioned in the story and other areas of the Armed Forces now this three-day simulator has the capacity to Train up to 15 students individually or they can also train as a team and prepare for a big mission Julie back to you in the studio Karolina thank you absolutely amazing how realistic that all is I know in just technology just a little swipe of a finger – and yes right there you’re put into that situation
