Terrain Databases for Training Planning & Mission Rehearsal

Ready for next mission?
The chance on success of the next mission is significantly increased by solid training, planning & mission rehearsal.

Simulation as a key military capability
• Train all possible scenarios
• Plan in 3D taking all terrain features into account
• Rehearse in the area of operation

But training time is limited, physical limitations prevent training of all possible scenarios, current maps are 2D and the operational area does not allow mission rehearsal. Introducing virtual simulation in your process removes current limitations.

Key re-lion Builder points
re-lion Builder is easy to learn & use, offers virtually unlimited varieties in typical terrain databases and enables mission planning & rehearsal in replicas of mission areas. Terrain databases created with Builder are correlated and can be published to re-lion SUIT, VBS2, Steel Beasts and OpenFlight.
