Fact Sheet: RSAF’s F-15SG Air Mission Trainer

The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF)'s F-15SG Air Mission Trainer (AMT) is a high-fidelity networked simulator, capable of simulating the actual capabilities of the F-15SG aircraft including its flight dynamics and weapons systems, for single and multiple aircraft training. Used for aircrew training since mid-2019, the F-15SG AMT complements live flying training to meet the RSAF's training requirements.

The F-15SG AMT is able to simulate a wide range of operational scenarios, from multi-aircraft combat missions to aircraft emergencies which are difficult to replicate in real life, and allows training to be conducted under all-weather as well as day and night conditions. The F-15SG AMT also allows multiple individual F-15SG flight simulators to be networked for mission training at the team-level and for multiple sets of fighter aircrew to be trained concurrently. This provides quality and realistic training for F-15SG aircrew to sharpen their flying and operational skills while allowing the RSAF to conduct training in a more cost-effective manner, given the AMT's lower operating cost compared to flying in an actual aircraft. Notwithstanding this, live flying training continues to be a necessity for training aircrew to operate in real-world flying and mission conditions.

Features of the F-15SG Air Mission Trainer

The F-15SG Air Mission Trainer comprises:

  1. F-15SG Flight Simulators. The F-15SG AMT comprises a number of F-15SG flight simulators networked together to enable multiple aircraft training. Each F-15SG flight simulator has a simulator cockpit that mirrors an actual F-15SG cockpit. The Visual Display System in each flight simulator, which provides a 360-degree view through a multi-panel widescreen display, generates a synthetic environment and flight parameter displays to support aircrew training.

  2. Instructor Operating Station (IOS). The IOS allows real-time monitoring, controlling and recording of each training session, as well as the configuration of training scenarios such as weapon status, fuel status, and weather conditions. Through the IOS, instructors can also take on the role of friendly units or enemy targets to support different training scenarios such as formation flying or air combat.

  3. Computer Generated Forces (CGF) System. The CGF system is able to generate a range of enemy targets and friendly units as well as air-to-air, air-to-surface and surface-to-air weapons, simulating the actions and reactions of various air and ground threats to enhance training realism.
