On VERA simulator
VERA-NG Training Simulator is a modern training tool for the Passive ESM Tracker. This military reconnaissance tool provides training of passive emitter tracking systems and electronic warfare. The simulator system consists of the VERA-NG console as a workplace for operators (trainees), a simulator console as a workplace for instructors (trainers), a central processing station and receiving universal military module.
The training simulator significantly decreases the time needed for new users to obtain needed experience without affecting the performance of the operational system. The training can be carried out using data from prepared scenarios or data from one receiving station. Off-line data from another VERA-NG system can also be replayed. ERA can deliver various scenarios reflecting the following themes or ERA experts can create any scenario on demand to create situations which might be extremely rare or almost impossible to find in the real environment
