Performance Optimization Technology
L3 Link’s approach to performance optimization supports the most effective acquisition of knowledge and skills by individuals and crews, with superior retention over time. Our approach accelerates learning through a combination of highly immersive training experiences, real-time performance assessment, and dynamic lesson and curriculum tailoring optimized to the individual.
L3 Link performance optimization technology reduces training-related life-cycle costs, returning trainees to their duties more quickly and maximizing utilization of training resources. Our performance monitoring and assessment technology provides instructors and students with real-time feedback, allowing for immediate coaching through a mix of instructor and automated guidance. The result:
- A highly engaging, immersive training experience that optimally addresses every learning objective with real-world relevance
- Training solutions that tap the trainee’s natural drive to excel, allowing for self-pacing to the degree allowed by customer training requirements
- Real-time and after-action performance scoreboards pinpoint exact areas of trainee and crew strengths and opportunities
L3 Link blends highly realistic simulated and real-world training content—combined with learning interventions that dynamically respond to trainee performance in real time—to maximize learning outcomes. This approach enables just-in-time coaching, automatically and via instructor response, that aligns with each customer’s specific training requirements and objectives.
L3 Link blended learning utilizes early immersion to immediately and continuously engage students from the beginning. Just-in-time expert coaching and other learning interventions support more rapid, comprehensive mastery of all knowledge, skills and attitudes required for mission success.
- Leverages the highest-fidelity training content and blends it across training media to optimize a curriculum within a customer’s requirements and objectives
- Utilizes performance-assessment technology that optimally integrates learning aids with training content in real time, based on rulesets defined by our instructional analysts and subject matter experts in cooperation with the customer
L3 Link’s Point-of-Need training delivery approach reduces training costs by making training content available, securely, wherever the trainee is located. Our approach improves training resource utilization by meeting learning objectives across a wide range of immersive trainee interaction devices. Link provides customers with unprecedented training flexibility, minimizing disruption to unit operations traditionally caused by training needs.
- Secure content delivery mechanisms place highly immersive, high-fidelity training content on devices ranging from handhelds to laptops to traditional part-task and full-motion simulators
- A successful blend of high-fidelity simulation and other learning content that delivers the integrated training experience with Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) conformance, locally or remotely
- Content delivery approach incorporates an advanced data protection architecture and security features as key enablers supporting accreditation along with the DoD’s CyberSecurity Risk Management Framework
Over a decade ago, L3 Link began fielding reconfigurable simulators to support the U.S. Army’s Aviation Combined Army Tactical Trainer and the service’s Flight School XXI Reconfigurable Collective Training Devices. The flexibility of these devices has enabled the Army to conduct networked training for aviators across its frontline platforms while helping to maximize the Army’s training dollar. We have applied our learnings to expand our network training capabilities to meet customer requirements across a broad range of fixed-wing platforms.
