ECA Group will showcase its Army Logistics Heavy Vehicle simulator as part of the latest addition to the French Army’s Vulcain simulation platform, at Eurosatory 2018.
ECA contributes to the Vulcain Platform, by implementing an Army Logistics Heavy Vehicle simulator, EF-Truck NG, to fit into a virtual convoy driven by an Army logistics soldier, led in a collaborative simulation (15 simulations means in network).
As an expert in driving simulators, ECA Group takes in consideration all the required parameters (detailed graphism, accurate physical model, vehicle dynamics, etc.) to ensure an efficient training in the French Army provided virtual environment.
The expertise brought by ECA Group’s know-how in driving simulation permits to recreate very realistically the reponse of an Logistic Vehicle, and especially when driven in harsh environments (unpaved roads with deep sand, mud, ditches etc.)
This platform named “Vulcain”, thanks to the High Level Architecture (HLA) technology, makes it possible to operate distributed simulation on land missions, that is to say to be able to connect several simulators of different natures simultaneously. ECA Group’s software’s engineers use this HLA technology to interconnect ECA Group’ simulators to the French Army virtual theatre of operations.
The collective simulation was successfully carried out to test this platform, which will be presented to Eurosatory 2018. Such a tool is expected to be used by soldiers of Scorpion brigades in the Sahelo-Saharan band.
The missions simulated by the Army will be presented and to which the ECA Group simulator trains for are:
+ Route reconnaissance
+ Convoy movement
