Camp Dawson  


Virtual Convoy Operations Trainer (VCOT)

Simulator Information

The VCOT provides training for combat convoys under realistic conditions through the streets of Baghdad and other areas.  VCOT ensures that soldiers are trained to anticipate ambushes and other insurgent actions from all possible directions by allowing the crew to observe, maneuver, and fire their weapons through a full 360 circumference.  Crewmembers are not limited by fixed screen projections; they have a complete and continuous view of the entire virtual world around them – as they would under real combat conditions.
