Project: ICAVS(D)

Interim Combined Arms Virtual Simulations (Deployable) – ICAVS(D) will replace the current in service system, Unit-Based Virtual Trainer (UBVT).
Drawing from the latest high specification hardware and using Defence Virtual Simulation software, the platform will deliver immersive virtual training and will help inform the requirements for the future replacement of the UK’s Command and Staff Training (CAST) and the Combined Arms Tactical Trainer (CATT) systems.
ICAVS(D) will be used to provide teams with a simple and effective computer-based training environment that enables them to carry out tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) in a realistic virtual environment.

The Role:

The Interim Combined Arms Virtual Simulation (Deployable) (ICAVS(D)) Training Facilitator (TF) leads and manages the delivering of the onsite ICAVS(D) training event to the British Army. The primary role is to set up, configure and run all aspects of the ICAVS(D) system to deliver a bespoke training event for the unit at a time and location of the units choosing. This can include weekend and evening work.
The TF will work intimately alongside the unit’s chain of command and instructors to deliver their training. The TF will often provide coaching and mentoring to the user to coach on how best to exploit the system and informed advice on the tactical problems they face. They will be ready to assist in the delivery of an After Action Review and to provide objective data captured by the system to reinforce learning.
The TF will dynamically alter and amend the scenario during runtime to keep the training at the desired difficulty threshold.
The TF will work in a small team to deliver familiarisation training to the Users and will support and monitor the users to ensure the system is used to its full potential. The TF puts the outcome of the training for the unit above all else so must be ready to employ their initiative and creative thinking to tackle unexpected problems without affecting the training outcome.
The TF will frequently work away from home during the week and may deploy the system overseas to support Army overseas training exercises.
