Army’s Synthetic Training Environment – STE SVT – has awarded a marksmanship training simulator contract to teach soldiers how to hit enemy combatants. Provided enemy is front-facing silhouettes
We demonstrated our commercial marksmanship training simulator STE and PEO STRI two years ago. The STE marksmanship simulator specification calls for all targets to be front-facing silhouettes, which are not realistic targets to train on when the object is to teach lead on enemy combatants. The proposed STE spec calls for the actual lead on the target to be estimated in terms of front-facing paper silhouettes. Catch is no target that is moving perpendicular or obliquely to the shooter is facing the shooter. So the simulation will not be realistic on movers. The simulator can display a realistic target and accurate ballistic lead – if the spec calls for it.
