Examining the Possibilities of Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC)

University essay from Försvarshögskolan

Abstract: Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) is a relatively newly developed system of systems concept designed to provide a new way of conducting training for, but not exclusively, fighter pilots. “Train like you fight” is a commonly used quote when talking about LVC. The ability to create an environment where fighter pilots are able to train in an environment that is as much alike their working environment as possible will give the pilots a huge advantage when having to work in such a challenging and dangerous environment like active war. Besides training, other areas to use LVC have been discussed, and one of those areas is system test and analysis for weapon systems. In this thesis the ability to use LVC as a system test and analysis tool is investigated. This is done by the development of a model of what the LVC system looks like, then a suggestion of an LVC-design with the purpose of using the system as a test and analysis tool is presented. The design is based on SWOT-analyses based on previous research and on LVC products existing on the market. To validate this design a workshop with experts was conducted to receive input on the design as well as discuss the possibilities of Sweden implementing LVC in the future. After the workshop the LVC-design was updated with the points from the workshop.
