New Simulators Take SF Training to Next Level

The 61st Security Forces Squadron at Los Angeles AFB, Calif., has a new simulation system that can create a wide variety of situations using computerized and video images to provide either a traditional ground war or urban environment. And, it talks back. Airmen running through the simulation can interact with the “bad guy,” giving commands that lead to either a shoot-out or surrender. Other situations can include scenarios faced by security forces in deployed locations, such as ambushes or roadside bombings.
