SAVT Description:

The Supporting Arms Virtual Trainer advances the training capability, operational readiness, and tactical proficiency of USMC Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC), Forward Observers (FO), and Forward Air Controllers (FAC). This virtual simulator provides personnel with training scenarios that require the placement of tactical ordnance on selected targets using Joint Close Air Support (JCAS) procedures and observed fire procedures. These scenarios allow for practical application of Naval Surface Fire Support (NSFS), artillery and mortar fire, neutralization, suppression, illumination, interdiction, and harassment fire missions.

Operational Impact:

With recent USMC doctrine changes, Joint JTAC memorandum agreement, and certification by Joint Forces Command (JFCOM) of the Navy's MSAT/SAVT, simulation events can replace 33% of USMC live fire Training and Readiness (T&R) and Joint Service currency training requirements.
