Global Systems has commenced production of its M1 Abrams Immersive Tactical Training System (ITT). This tank simulator redefines the level of proficiency Abrams crews can achieve from simulation by using immersive and high-fidelity networked simulation technology.

The Thomas Global Systems ITT is the next generation in Abrams simulation – delivering a fully immersive training experience that accurately replicates all crew positions, and addresses the training requirements of a Tactical Crew Trainer, Gunnery Training System, and Driver Trainer in a single simulation system. The ITT is designed to exceed the training outcomes provided by older training solutions. The ITT provides the flexibility to run independent operation of each crew position, full crew operation or multi-vehicle scenarios, or as part of a larger networked training scenario via an HLA/DIS gateway – achieving the highest-fidelity, complex collective training possible in a simulator.

The ITT facilitates fully customisable environments and scenarios from a dedicated instructor station. Instructors and unit commanders can provide immediate onboard feedback to crew and continuously challenge their best operators for a scalable and holistic approach to skill development.

Abrams ITT deliveries are scheduled to commence in early 2024 as part of the Government of Australia’s LAND907 Phase 2 acquisition of 75 M1A2 SEPv3 Main Battle Tanks. This significant project underscores Thomas Global Systems’ commitment to supporting the modernisation efforts of defence forces globally by providing the most advanced and comprehensive simulation solutions.

The Thomas Global Systems ITT has already garnered strong interest from domestic and international Abrams tank operators, encompassing both M1A2 and M1A1 variants, as well as other armored fighting vehicles. The system’s adaptability and comprehensive training capabilities make it a compelling solution for military forces seeking to enhance the readiness and proficiency of their armoured units.
