Turnkey System Ready for Training in 2019
The Royal Thai Navy (RTN) has awarded Rheinmetall a contract worth several million Euros to develop and deliver a turnkey Naval Warfare Training Simulator (NWTS), to include a new school house and associated infrastructure. The facility is scheduled to be operational by the third quarter of 2019.
Based on Rheinmetall’s Action Speed Tactical Trainer (ASTT), the RTN’s NWTS will be used to prepare personnel for a variety of combat scenarios, including engaging mines as well as surface, aerial and underwater targets. Rheinmetall will draw on its comprehensive expertise in the domain of maritime simulation, including use of the tried-and-tested Advanced Naval Synthetic Environment (ANSE) software, which enables rapid generation of synthetic scenarios.
In addition, the new training facility can be connected to the Royal Thai Navy’s existing Submarine Command Team Trainer (SCTT) and Anti-Submarine Warfare Simulator (ASWS) systems, both of which were also supplied by Rheinmetall. This networking capability offers great potential for generating new, even more sophisticated and realistic scenarios in all three of the training systems.
