QinetiQ Deliver Gunnery Training Solution to the Royal Navy

Wed, 31 Oct 2012 08:42:07 EST

QinetiQ has designed and delivered a new training environment for close range weapon training for the Royal Navy. The new Close Range Weapon Training (CRWT) facility at HMS Collingwood is a scaleable, flexible, training simulation system that allows the delivery of individual, collective and continuation training in the use of close range weapons.

This fast paced programme of work has seen a new facility designed, built, and accepted into service within 12 months of contract award.

By integrating QinetiQ's software with VBS2 (Virtual Battlespace 2) and current gaming technology, QinetiQ has delivered an updated 3D virtual environment along with adapted ship mounted weapons providing an immersive and operationally current series of weapons training platforms which can be quickly configured to meet future user requirements.

The facility provides a simulated training environment for weapons training including 4 General purpose machine guns (GPMG), 4 mini-guns, and a 30mm and 20mm cannon. Each can be used individually or collectively within 10 bespoke training scenarios which have been designed by QinetiQ, in conjunction with the Royal Navy utilising VBS2 and commercial, off the shelf software.

Vice Admiral David Steel, CBE, Chief Of Naval Personnel & Training and Second Sea Lord said "It gives me great pleasure to open the training facility, to all of you who have made this possible thank you."

Miles Adcock, Managing Director, Training and Simulations Services said
'Using open standards and interfaces to enable interoperability and data exchange, the facility can be enhanced to work with other training programmes such as the Maritime Composite Training System or other Ship alongside training facilities.'

'The MOD has embraced a new breed of simulation and training which combines QinetiQ's knowledge of technology, detailed military understanding from experience in operational theatres, and the creativity of the gaming industry to deliver intuitive, flexible and cost effective training solutions. Most importantly of all, this is a training solution that can help save lives.'
