The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) lacks an accredited JTAC/(IF) simulation system to deliver basic currency requirements which requires this training to be conducted using overseas Close Air Support (CAS) aircraft. Also, this limits the live aircraft time available to conduct JTAC and Joint Fire Observer (JFO) proficiency-based training and, as the number of CAS aircraft available for this training falls, the time available for NZDF training will further decrease, adversely impacting JFO proficiency, with a resulting risk to mission success.
The primary objective of the JTAC/IF Simulation System Project is to deliver a simulation system that will be the primary New Zealand based IF and CAS training system, enabling the majority of JTAC and JFO bi-annual currency requirements and Indirect Fire Observer training requirements to be met in a synthetic environment.
They key objective of this procurement is to purchase two fixed systems and one deployable system, with the fixed systems being located, one in Papakura Military Camp (PMC), Auckland, New Zealand and one in Linton Military Camp (LMC), Palmerston North, New Zealand.
Prospective Tenderer's should be aware that the JTAC/IF simulation system being offered to NZDF must meet all of the standards as defined by the Joint Fire Support Executive Steering Committee Joint Close Air Action Plan Memorandum of Agreement 2004-01, commonly known as the JTAC MOA.
