The Armed Forces Academy of General Milan Rastislav Štefánik prepare the intellectual leaders of armed forces and experts on security and defence…
The Mission of the Armed Forces Academy of General Milan Rastislav Štefánik is to provide cadets with university and lifelong education and training, to contribute to a comprehensive improvement of their personality, broaden their knowledge, develop creativity and to motivate them for the service in the Armed Forces of the Slovak Republic.
By taking the professional approach to the education and training and through personal example, the academy aims to prepare the graduates of the Armed Forces Academy to identify with the motto of the Armed Forces Academy of General Milan Rastislav Štefánik:
Wisdom is a combination of intelligence, experience and character. (knowledge, experience, intuition) which resides in a whole-life ability to gain knowledge for its judicious application.
Goodness is a basic moral value. As an opposite of evil, it is a high moral behaviour to be adopted.
The country where we were born and to which we have a strong emotional relation.
The Simulation Centre of the Armed Forces Academy is a specialized academic department and deals with simulation technologies in the field of constructive and virtual simulation. The Centre provides Computer Aided Exercises for crisis staffs and brigades and battalion staffs, as well as training on various types of simulators for cadets of the academy, members of the Ministry of Defence and Slovak Armed Forces units. The Simulation Centre’s members take part in scientific projects in the field of simulation technologies and crisis management. The outputs of the projects are used in order to improve the training of the Slovak Armed Forces. In the area of information exchange, the Simulation Centre also cooperates with many domestic and foreign partners. As part of providing computer-aided exercises, Simulation Centre has supported international exercises with the possibility to have distributed exercises which are provide by interconnection with Simulation Department at Military Training Area in Lešť.
The Mission of the Simulation Centre is to:
- implement research and development activities in the field of simulation and modeling of crisis situations and conditions at national and international level
- train commanders and staffs
- train Air Traffic Controllers
- provide shooting training
- prepare cadets and career courses trainees
- coordinate and prepare Computer Aided Exercises
- develop scenario, cooperate in the field of education and training, training provision, creation of “virtual reality” of processes and correct operation of models
- provide domestication of simulation technology
- provide technical support
- Simulation Centre is a training organization for Military Air Traffic Controllers (ATCo) which is certified by the Military Aviation Authority. Due to the fact that ATCo should avoid receiving bad habits during the training there is a need to make all kinds of training with credible and certified simulators such as “Real High Fidelity Simulator”, or similar synthetic devices. Taking into consideration the financial aspect and level of domestication of existing simulation tools Simulation Centre provides solutions based on the platform of constructive and virtual simulation. The aim is to increase the safety level of air space of the Slovak Republic and provide realistic training for Air Force personnel of the Ministry of Defence. Simulation Centre provides training for positions Radar – Operational Air Traffic, Radar – Approach and Visual – Tower.
