Elbit Systems has announced that the Mission Training Centre (MTC) for the Israeli Air Force's (IAF) pilots of F-16C/D and F-16I fighter aircraft is now operational and currently being used by the IAF.
The MTC, operating through a PFI (Private Financing Initiative) concept, successfully completed the development phase and is now operational, with Elbit Systems performing the instruction, operation and maintenance services.

The new operational MTC marks a significant breakthrough in the operational training sector. The system enables training in various mission scenarios in different theaters with the relevant threat environment for each theater. The MTC brings an advanced training capability that was not available to the IAF in the past.

At its core, the MTC is a unique "Mission Training" system that enables coordinated training between the various trainees, both within the IAF and at an interoperable strategic level. It is based on Elbit Systems' “One sim” infrastructure that incorporates an advanced arena generator for “realistic” virtual environments that are as close to reality as possible, as well as a unique infrastructure that supports the demanding environment used in the MTC. IAF teams are able to train in two-ship, four-ship and even eight-ship formations, with flight inspector's full supervision that can, as desired, take an active part in each training session by actually flying adversary forces. The system enables the pilots to train together with operational controllers from the various control units of the IAF. The pilots and controllers receive the mission orders from the MTC team, plan together and afterwards execute the mission with each member of the team training in an operational role.

With its high quality operational training capabilities, the operational MTC allows the IAF to conduct training sorties onboard the trainers rather than actual fighter jets, thus allowing maximized use of existing resources, reducing life cycle costs and enhancing readiness and effectiveness of the IAF and its fighter pilots.

Elbit Systems Aerospace Division's General Manager Yoram Shmuely, commented: "The MTC system was developed in line with the modern combat doctrine which calls for real time fully integrated operation of multiple forces and thus requires an interoperable training solution.  We're very proud of the MTC team and their significant effort invested to transition the MTC to the operational phase for our customer. This successful transition attests to our customer's trust in Elbit Systems' solutions and expertise, combining both a technological edge and the understanding of the customer's unique needs, and further demonstrates and strengthens our position as world leaders in the field of advanced tactical training solutions".
