SEA Launches Tailored Anti-Submarine Warfare Training Programme
10 Sep 2019
SEA is launching a tailorable Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Training Service at the DSEI exhibition in London this month.
The new training capability complements SEA’s innovative Krait Defence System, providing a complete cost-effective ASW solution for navies of all sizes, covering training and equipment provision.
The tailored training service, comprised of four distinct packages, utilises the latest training and simulation technologies and is designed using the principles of the UK Defence Systems Approach to Training. This process is used to define and develop UK military training solutions to provide realistic and operationally relevant training scenarios based on a customer’s area of operation and potential threats.
Package one, which focuses on knowledge, will be tailored to the needs, experience and knowledge of the customer and can be delivered in a classroom or accessed online. The second package, which will be demonstrated at DSEI, enables users at all levels of the command chain to train interactively using real applications in a simulated environment. The remaining packages are focused on the sonar operator and maintainer.
The design and delivery of the training service builds upon SEA’s established pedigree in ASW and sonar systems equipment. The company has significant experience in the domain which will enable its staff to effectively deliver the training to students as well as providing insight to the trainers through the Train the Trainer programme.
Steve Hill, Managing Director, SEA said: “Launching a cutting-edge ASW training system enables us to be a single provider for equipment and training solutions. Utilising the very latest in simulation technology and delivery methods, our new service not only allows training to be tailored based on each individual customer’s specific needs but enables us to deliver training worldwide. The system is exceptionally realistic and also provides operationally relevant training scenarios to assist the warfighter whether the training takes place in a classroom, or while deployed on operations.”
The demonstration version of the cutting-edge training software for DSEI is delivered in partnership with Antycip Simulation, who has provided the software licence for VT MAKs VR-Forces Computer Generated Forces (CGF) platform. This will generate the tactical scenario for the Collective Command / Team Trainer package of the service.
The ASW Training Service will be available in 2020 and will be available to view at the DSEI exhibition on stand S8-120.
