Synthetic Environments


Synthetic Environments enables the wide range of models and simulations needed for complex defence systems to be linked together to facilitate data exchange and interoperability between them. MBDA has produced a self-contained Interoperability Box which establishes these connections and permits data exchange between different sites, systems and protocols. The key objectives of the Synthetic Environment are:

  • Enabling the exchange of information between Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) components, using open systems and international standards
  • Providing a rapidly reconfigurable, flexible and agile environment (Testbed) consisting of reusable components
  • Providing the infrastructure to connect the components between the facilities and across national boundaries
  • Deploying this capability to reduce timescales, cost and risk at all phases of weapon system development
  • Providing this capability across the international community
