Training

In order to provide our customers with the freedom of choice and flexibility, all L3 ForceX’s training solutions efficiently adapt to either the on-site location at the Clarksville, TN headquarters or to customer specific off-site locations.

L3 ForceX’s training solutions are recommended for a maximum class size of 10-12 students (due to spatial and seating limitations). If training needs dictate larger class sizes, the classes can be split between different dates, or L3 ForceX can arrange off-site training. All training coordination requires advanced notice.

The standard L3 ForceX airborne application training class is a three-day hands-on course, designed for current sensor operators and aircrews covering a specific L3 ForceX application. Instructor lectures, student hands-on workbook exercises, and simulated full mission scenarios are used to reinforce the application’s capabilities in a crawl-walk-run pattern of learning.

L3 ForceX also supports small group advanced ground simulation and in-flight training for sensor operators and their aircrews using L3 ForceX airborne applications and their associated aircraft sensor equipment. This focus utilizes customer aircraft and training sites to continue the hands-on learning experiences in a realistic in-flight mission environment. These courses range from one to four weeks long, depending on previous student experience and desired level of training.

A typical L3 ForceX training class runs from approx. 9 A.M. until 4 P.M. each day, unless other arrangements are made. Fees for all L3 ForceX training courses can be obtained from the appropriate Program Manager.

Documentation

L3 ForceX offers a wide variety of Software User Manuals, workbooks, sensor integration manuals, and documentation materials. All documentation is produced in-house to meet the needs of our customers.

Software User Manuals

Driven by the program contract, the Software User Manual is developed as an introduction to the L3 ForceX application, features and functionality. The document discusses an array of topics, ranging from application installation and configuration to functionality and operational procedures, to fully equip the operator, whether expert or novice, with the knowledge to properly utilize the application. SUMs are provided with each application release and any updates. While the SUM is the base document of the application, it should be used in conjunction with the other educational materials, classroom and field instruction to properly and fully train operators on the application and features and function.

Release Notes

Release notes provide in-depth supported computer platform information, system hardware and requirements and supported firmware/software version data in a concise, easy-to-follow format. L3 ForceX delivers release notes with each application release and any updates.

Software Workbooks

Each software application offers a corresponding workbook designed to complement L3 ForceX training. Workbooks contain the same software application information and color graphics as the Software User Manuals however they also include helpful hints and operator tips, quizzes, tests, interactive exercises and additional support material atypical to SUMs. Testing content comprises theoretical basics, system hardware requirements and configuration, software configuration tutorials, sectional key concepts, and step-by-step operational procedures.

Hardware Systems Workbooks

Identifying an industry-wide lack of operator-oriented educational documentation regarding Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance mission hardware systems – L3 ForceX continues to enhance customer support by producing detailed, operator-oriented workbooks for a variety of third-party hardware systems. Workbooks can be customized upon request. Color graphics, helpful hints, operator tips, and logical, user-oriented layout explain hardware configuration and operation. Quizzes and tests measure and reinforce student learning.

Quick Reference Guides

In an operational or training environment, a Quick Reference Guide (QRG) aids the operator in easily finding commonly referenced information on how to follow procedures, checklists, troubleshoot issues, or even modify software settings on-the-fly when reconfiguring due to a hardware change or system malfunction.

QRGs eliminate the need to transport the full-size Workbooks, Software User Manuals, and flight-guides onto the platform’s demanding operational environment. These hip-pocket sized custom designed booklets illustrate operation and configuration steps in a simplified, step-by-step format.
