QinetiQ, Inzpire Limited and Close Air Solutions have signed a Collaboration Agreement, joining forces to bid for the Training & Simulation Systems Programme (TSSP) Joint Fires Synthetic Training project.
The combination of high-tech innovation, subject matter expertise and proven training delivery experience provided by the combined team aims to support the UK Ministry of Defence vision for future training.
The project, which seeks to reach Full Operating Capability by 2020, will train soldiers in how to control and coordinate naval, air and land weapon systems, to win the land commander's immediate battle. Soldiers will train both individually and in teams, enhancing their skills in identifying targets, protecting friendly forces and civilians and communicating information.
The classroom and simulator based system will combine a number of battlefield scenarios created by civilian and military instructors to immerse soldiers as they train for future conflict. Multiple sites will be networked across the UK and with international partners.
QinetiQ will lead the bid team, offering its expertise as the systems integrator for the training system, while Inzpire will seek to provide the Training Management Team. Close Air Solutions will offer innovative, accredited Joint fires simulators and associated support to deliver rich, immersive training outcomes.
