Reconfigurable Virtual Collective Trainer (RVCT)



To enable unit collective and combined arms air-ground training for Aviation and Ground units (Active and National Guard) within the STE environment. To support the training of non-rated crew members in crew coordination, flight, aerial gunnery, hoist and sling-load related tasks via the NRCM training devices.


The Reconfigurable Virtual Collective Trainer (RVCT) includes aviation platforms (RVCT-A), ground platforms (RVCT-G), dismounted infantry collective maneuver training, collective gunnery training, and mission rehearsal capability. The RVCT is a mobile, transportable, modular, and scalable training capability with the minimum hardware necessary to represent form, fit, and function for the user to execute collective tasks. The RVCT will use the Common Synthetic Environment (CSE) platform enabler. The CSE is comprised of three foundational capabilities: One World Terrain (OWT), Training Management Tool (TMT), and Training Simulation Software (TSS). The CSE delivers software, application(s) and services that will enable the RVCT. The RVCT architecture and design will enable and support interoperability with the future Next Generation Constructive (NGC), Live Training Environment, and other STE and operation capabilities.
