ObjectiveThe primary objective for the Fighter4Ship (F4S) facility is to enable research on fast-jet team operations and the embedding thereof in potentially large-scale collective, combined and/or joint operations. Research is focused on, but not limited to:
ContextDuring military operations, fast-jets operate in teams of two, four, or more. Fighter 4-Ship (F4S) is a research simulation facility that can simulate the collective tactical operations of up to four fast-jet fighter aircraft. The tube-frame mockup approach of F4S makes it affordable and mobile, and it's potential was shown when shipped to Lockheed-Martin to be used in an onsite demonstration of MultiShip Embedded Training concepts at LM Aero, Fort Worth, USA.
F4S focusses on interoperability and reconfigurability - with support for modern and conventional cockpit layouts - with F-16 simulation as a basis. A research HMD is part of the set-up. F4S supports the whole mission-cycle by integrating the mission support systems for planning, briefing and debriefing, as used in actual fast-jet operations by the Royal Netherlands Airforce (RNLAF), but also experimental and prototype systems . Also state-of-the-art mission scenario and environment simulation is available to build-up complex scenarios for F4S to operate in.
