Operator Training Devices


AV-8B Deployable Mission Rehearsal Trainer (DMRT)

The DMRT is designated as Device 2F241 and is a self-contained device, produced with a maximum use of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products. The basic configuration of this system will consist of a simulated AV-8B cockpit comprised of flat and touch screens to display instruments, switches, knobs, cockpit indicators, avionics and an out-the-window field of view. The concept/architecture of the DMRT emphasizes plug-and-play capabilities. The DMRT is an open architecture interface design that enables future technology upgrades that will enhance the performance and reliability of the training system.  The DMRT will be deployable to theaters of operation including LHA and LHD big deck amphibious ships.

The DMRT is intended to provide deployed AV-8B pilots the following training capabilities:

  • Radar operation
  • Hands on Throttle and Stick (HOTAS)
  • Multi-Purpose Displays (MPDs)
  • Control Monitor Set (CMS) Operations
  • Mission Type Rehearsal
