The Royal Navy of Oman places order for state-of-the-art simulation training tools

UK based DTM Global, a global player in defence simulation training, has won a major contract with the Royal Navy of Oman to supply three new state-of-the-art training tools.

The contract includes a bridge trainer for interactive training in ship handling and bridge procedures; a radio communications trainer to sharpen communication skills and a recognition training system to maximise accuracy in combat identification.

The Fleetman Bridge Trainer, with a 270° field of view, simulated bridge and engine controls, instrument panels and electronic chart display, can simulate a range of routine operations, from the simple to highly complex and potentially dangerous situations. Training exercises can include ships, submarines and aircraft in different ports and at sea, with accurate depth contours and differing weather conditions. An integrated Radio Communications Trainer sharpens communication skills and improves operational safety.

The Insight recognition trainer uses high-resolution 3-dimensional images to help users identify the origins of a particular vehicle, ship or aircraft thereby reducing the risk of friendly fire in combat. The program is already in use by the US Air Force and 23 other Armed Forces globally.

Tim Dewing, Chief Executive of DTM Global, said: “There are few companies that offer such capability in a portable and highly flexible PC format. The Royal Navy of Oman will quickly reap the benefits of these highly effective training tools. DTM Global has grown rapidly as more and more Armed Forces recognise the significance of our networked training tools. Our quality of product, combined with our quality of service, is what really makes us stand out”.
