Air Force Joint Simulation Training Platform Receives Core Software

The U.S. Air Force will soon complete its Joint Simulation Environment next-generation training and test facility. 

Located at the Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, the JSE received its core software after the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division recently completed its installation. The core software comes with digital elements that offer simulated variables such as the electromagnetic spectrum, enemy aircraft and weapon systems and weather.

As the Pentagon’s next-generation digital test and training platform, the JSE features virtual cockpits, domed simulators with 4K projectors and aircraft software, allowing pilots to fly wartime scenarios, the U.S. Navy said.

The Air Force initially introduced the idea of virtual training and forming the JSE in 2022, when Col. Charles Ryan, the service branch’s senior materiel leader for the simulators division, disclosed plans to adopt a common virtual training environment across the service.

Apart from the JSE, the service is also collaborating with other vendors to provide virtual training. In September, the Defense Innovation Unit and Metrea Simulations collaborated on the Virtual Training for Air Dominance program to deliver scalable training for the 19th Air Force and the U.S. Air Force Air Education and Training Command.
