Artillery Forward Observer Trainer

AFOT is a portable indoor or outdoor trainer for training of artillery Forward Observers in infantry units.

It is designed for interactive training in target detection, fire requests, fire organization and fire direction activities based on STANAG. It enables simulation of real combat conditions for effective training of tactics, techniques, and procedures.

During firing missions, communication is crucial between the FO and FDC. The AFOT trains Forward Observers to become faster and more precise in mission execution.
