Joint Fires Synthetic Trainer Be prepared for your missions

Joint fires Trainer JFIST


The forward air controller never fights alone — he is always part of a team. Therefore, the team needs to train and evaluate their performance together. Training must consist of proper procedures, tactics and terminology in order to achieve the desired effect, ensure full preparedness, and minimize the risk of collateral damage.

With Saab’s Joint Fires Synthetic Trainer (JFIST®), JTACs, Forward Observers and other roles in the Joint Fires capacity will have access to a cost-effective virtual training solution that cover all phases, from basic training to mission rehearsal.

Whether the goal is to train for a partial task performed by a single role, or collaborative training for several roles, JFIST handles it all.

Train as you fight, where you fight

Models of infrastructures, vehicles, humans, and a variety of weapon systems enable the creation of realistic scenarios. The system also supports control of direct and indirect fire.

During/after action review

D/AAR functions allow for qualitative evaluation to achieve full training value. Instructors can monitor the exercise and conduct an accuate analysis.
