RAF Waddington personnel on Exercise RED FLAG "work up" at the Air Battle Space Training Centre

The synthetic training delivered by the ABTC is aimed at preparing 8 Sqn and Battlespace Management Force personnel for deployment on the foremost coalition air power exercise in the world.  Using current Ex RED FLAG material and products, a full synthetic replica of the Nellis Training Range was created and, focusing on the air command and control capability delivered by both Force Elements, the ABTC White Force fully tested the respective mission crews across a range of missions likely to be encountered on the exercise.

“The ABTC is an invaluable tool for mission crew preparation and training. The experienced White Force generate rich scenarios which are highly-immersive. The safe training environment allows, in this particular instance, mission crews to hit Ex RED FLAG at pace. This will enable better learning and higher levels of enjoyment, but more importantly, it will effect better Force Generation outcomes.” Wg Cdr M R Rendall, OC ABTC.

An Air Warfare Centre unit, the ABTC specialises in the provision of synthetic team and collective training, enabled by a professional White Force comprised of current military and Inzpire contracted subject matter experts, across the range of air power roles.
