I/ITSEC 2015: Boeing's Enhanced, Affordable, Air Combat Training

Boeing’s Integrated Live, Virtual and Constructive (I-LVC) training links a real aircraft (live) with ground-based (virtual) and simulated threats (constructive), allowing aircrews to train within a complex threat environment previously unavailable for live tactical training.

I-LVC minimises the need for multiple aircraft to participate in training scenarios, extending range capacity and reducing the costs of expensive live flight training. The system is aircraft-agnostic and can support training against air- and ground-based electronic warfare threats for domestic and international customers.

A wing-mounted LVC-enabled pod delivers processing power and seamlessly integrates simulated threats into the cockpit environment. The system is secure and encrypted, compatible with existing tactical combat training systems. Aggressor aircraft, previously flown with live aircraft, can be replaced with ground-based or synthetic threats. I-LVC training is designed for expansion to include new weapons and threats.
