Scaling Training For Airmen On The Move

With trainers moving for various deployments, the USAF faced challenges passing on institutional knowledge for network configuration training. Combined with limited space available for training, this scarcity meant that Airmen-in-training were not able to receive the hands-on training time they needed.

The Challenge

The United States Air Force (USAF) faced a significant challenge in maintaining the continuity of institutional knowledge in network configuration training. With frequent deployments leading to trainers’ mobility, a critical gap emerged in passing on vital skills. This issue was compounded by limited physical training spaces, resulting in insufficient hands-on training opportunities for Airmen-in-training. The need for an innovative solution was clear.

Our Solution

To address these challenges, we pioneered a groundbreaking solution: a virtual reality (VR) training simulation specifically designed for USAF network facilities. This state-of-the-art simulation replicates common network configuration procedures, allowing Airmen to immerse themselves in realistic training scenarios. Key features include:

  • Performance Tracking: The system logs student performance, providing valuable feedback for continuous improvement.
  • Modularity: Designed with future needs in mind, the simulation can be easily expanded and updated with new modules and scenarios.

Development Process

Our development team embarked on a mission to closely mirror the real-world environment of USAF network facilities. By meticulously recreating these settings in a virtual landscape, we ensured an authentic training experience. The simulation was engineered to support multiple interaction modes, offering users a dynamic and versatile training environment. This approach catered to various learning styles, ensuring a comprehensive and effective training experience.


Since its deployment in 2021, the VR training platform has profoundly transformed USAF network configuration training. The immediate impacts observed include:

  • Enhanced Training Efficiency: Airmen-in-training now engage in more frequent and in-depth practice sessions, leading to a faster and more comprehensive mastery of network configuration skills.
  • Increased Accessibility: The limitation of physical space is no longer a barrier. Trainees across various locations can access high-quality training, ensuring a consistent learning experience for all.
  • Scalability and Adaptability: The platform’s modular design allows for the seamless integration of additional modules to help keep training content up-to-date with the latest technological advancements in network configuration.
