For more than 30 years FAAC has provided systems engineering and software products to the U.S. government and private industry. We take a hands-on approach to developing our solutions, conducting tactical land and air combat analyses, and developing analytical models and simulations. The result is turnkey training systems for the US military and their related industrial contractors. Our services encompass all stages of a job, from problem definition to conceptual innovation and final solution. This work draws on our expertise in:
- air and land warfare tactics
- electronic warfare
- training ranges
- weapon system trainers
- weapon guidance
- tactical air and surface-launched weapons
- threat air defenses (surface-to-air and air-to-air)
FAAC is the world’s leading supplier of accurate high-speed weapon system simulations. Our experience performing this work over the past 30 years has resulted in an excellent reputation with both developmental and operational military activities.
We’ve been involved with distributed simulations since the inception of DIS standards development. In fact, FAAC personnel hold leadership positions on the DIS Workshop and have developed diverse products based on our unique weapon simulations and DIS expertise. This unique skill set led us to develop numerous Department of Defense programs and, ultimately, begin building our business in the commercial sector.
We were the first to develop an interactive, reconfigurable truck driving simulator for commercial training. The simulator combines a high degree of realism with the ability to create various scenarios from the Instructor Operator Station. The design flexibility of this unit provides a cost effective and safe method for driver training and testing.
Since then we’ve applied our unique expertise to creating high-fidelity weapon models, graphical databases, and intelligent automated behavior models to the entertainment industry, including a PC-based air combat game called “Back to Baghdad.”
We’ve built our success by staying true to our commitment to the principles of customer satisfaction, concern for our employees, business integrity and community involvement. We consistently deliver on time and on budget, and we continually strive to improve our ability to develop the highest quality products and solutions.
