MAK ONE Key Features

  • Computer Generated Forces (CGF)

    Use the multi-domain tactical environment to model and simulate platforms, humans, weapons, communications, EW, and sensors. SENSOR

  • First-Person Multi-Role Simulators

    Take over control from the CGF and provide an interactive, and immersive, experience for trainees, role-players, and test subjects.

  • Image Generators

    Render correlated out-the-window and sensor views for display in simulators, VR/MR headsets and 3rd-party applications.

  • Sensor Operators

    Physically accurate electro-optical, night vision, and infrared scenes that correlate with the out-the-window visuals and instructor views. SAR & ISAR scenes for in-cockpit displays.

  • Situational Awareness Displays

    Quickly achieve a “big picture” understanding of the simulation while retaining an immersive sense of perspective: Brief/debrief, After Action Review, Common Operational Picture.

  • Instructor/Operator Stations

    Use the behavior engine to control the exercise, add patterns of life, and specify global and local weather conditions.

  • Wargaming, Command & Control Capabilities

    Conduct Mission Rehearsal, Course of Action Analysis and Exercise Planning for Virtual and Live Training Exercises to include Terrain Walkthrough of operational environment and White Cell, Blue Cell, and Red Cell EXCON

  • Whole-Earth Terrain

    Simulate on procedurally generated Whole-Earth terrain or load industry standard terrain formats for compatibility with legacy systems and detail exactly where you need it.

  • Connect Simulations into the Synthetic Environment

    Toolkit that provides an easy way to network simulators and other virtual reality applications. It uses a protocol independent API that abstracts away specific networking details and provides your software with support for industry standard High Level Architecture (HLA) and the Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) protocols.
