The Navy faces a significant challenge to its dominance of sea and air given the Anti-Access Area-Denial (A2AD) capabilities of major powers. The Navy's response, in part, is to implement technical capabilities that enable platforms to coordinate in new ways to execute offensive and defensive actions at very long range. While the Navy finalizes this Naval Integrated Fire Control-Counter Air (NIFC-CA) technology and defines associated tactics, the Office of Naval Research has initiated a program to demonstrate training solutions that can help the force master NIFC-CA. Aptima has teamed with the University of Central Floridas Institute for Simulation and Training (UCF IST) to further develop NIFC-CA X, a technology addressing the challenge of training aviators and surface warfighters together concerning when and how to employ NIFC-CA as a cross-domain team-of-teams. Aptima will perform a requirements analysis and gather essential data concerning the domain, define and implement new measures of performance by cross-platform personnel, and design and implement updates to the operator interfaces that transform a constructive simulation into a virtual simulation for tactical decision making concerning NIFC-CA engagements. The product is a first-of-its-kind NIFC-CA training system prototype that will be significantly enhanced and transitioned over the coming years.
