The US Air Force Distributed Mission Operations Center (USAF DMOC) at Kirtland Air Force Base, NM, uses MetaVR VRSG for networked Distributed Mission Operations (DMO). DMOC serves as Air Combat Command's (ACC's) tactical to operational level synthetic battlespace hub for distributed combat training exercises, testing and experimentation.

Currently, the 705th Combat Training Squadron and 505th Command and Control Wing at the DMOC trains with the Joint Terminal Control Training and Rehearsal System (JTC TRS) at the DMOC. This system replaced a previous training system, MetaVR and BSI’s JTAC desktop simulator, called the J-T/OSS v2.0 Desktop System.

The 705th Combat Training Squadron and 505th Command and Control Wing at the DMOC have used VRSG since 1997 in simulation training events they provide to prepare warfighters around the world for combat in joint and coalition environments. Such tactical training exercises include the quarterly Virtual Flag event, which provides joint and coalition military members the opportunity for a large-force exercise experience to help prepare them for real-world major combat operations.

In addition to using VRSG at the DMOC, the Air Combat Command's (ACC's) 705 Combat Training Squadron facilitates the purchase and installation of VRSG in training systems at other ACC sites throughout the US.
