Boeing has connected the first F-22 Mission Training Centre (MTC) at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia to the US Air Force’s Distributed Mission Operations Network (DMON).

The MTC will provide the F-22 pilots with virtual training, along with pilots in other aircraft platforms.

The air force’s Distributed Mission Operations configuration, via the DMON, will help MTC sites to connect with one another, increase the scale and improve the accuracy of training operations.

During the training, the four-seat F-22 MTC flight trainer will be connected to the DMON, to provide F-22 pilots with more realistic training with other air force assets on the network, such as the F-15C MTC.

The MTC will also use the Agile Software Development process, for the first time, to assess functionality of the trainer’s components much faster compared to traditional software development methods.

Boeing will deliver three new F-22 MTCs for Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska; Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico; and Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii, over the next three years.
