Close Air Solutions Video – Exercise Ample Strike
NATO Simulation Training at Exercise Ample Strike
Close Air Solutions (CAS) successfully deployed the iCASS (immersive Close Air Support Simulator) to Namest Air Base, Czech Republic as an integral part of EXERCISE AMPLE STRIKE. AMSE14 was held in the Czech Republic from 8-12 September 2014. The exercise objective was to ensure NATO Forward Air Controllers (FAC) are current for contingency operations. FACs took part from a number of nations, notably, the Czech Republic, Latvia, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, USA and the UK. All had the opportunity to control live aircraft as well as experience simulator training. Throughout the week, the CAS training team put 14 teams of NATO FACs through their paces in a virtual environment.
