T-100 Integrated Training System: realism, efficiency and effectiveness

The most advanced cockpit-embedded tactical training system that integrates with multiple aircraft and ground-based training devices can only be found on the T-100. It’s comprised of embedded simulation on-board the aircraft to train students for the most different missions; simulators and ground-based instructional devices, including an operational live, virtual and constructive (LVC) environment that are linked to the jet in-flight for added realism and efficiency. So, for all levels of training, the T-100 satisfies the needs of the U.S. Air Force’s T-X program.


A comprehensive in-flight Embedded Tactical Training Simulation (ETTS) suite is a key feature of the T-100 and core element of the Integrated Training System (ITS).

ETTS enables the T-100 to offer the whole spectrum of simulated training functions in-flight and provides both students and instructors with the following on-board simulations:

  • A tactical scenario (digital map with threats and targets)
  • Presence of realistic Computer Generated Forces (friend and foe)
  • On-board sensors (such as multimode Fire Control Radar, targeting pod and active/passive electronic countermeasures)
  • Weapons, including specific symbology and delivery parameters
  • Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) enabled

ETTS functions can support Stand Alone (flying a single-ship mission) or Multi-Ship networked operations, with aircraft and simulators being networked via a dedicated Training Datalink to exchange Tactical Scenario data with other participants.
