Bluedrop Performance Learning Inc., through its subsidiary Bluedrop Training & Simulation Inc., has received a $1 million contract through the Build in Canada Innovation Program to deliver an innovative new approach to vehicle-based gunnery mission training for land forces.

The vehicle gunnery simulator is an immersive virtual training device to teach, practice and evaluate remote weapon system crew gunnery skills and communication. The simulator will address target engagement, dangerous malfunctions, firing solutions and techniques as well as vehicle orientation limits (rollover) that may affect gunnery operations in a mission relevant setting. The blend of physical and virtual simulation will heighten mission realism and push the limits of vehicle crew gunnery training available at the operational units. This simulator will be developed in partnership with the 5th Canadian Division to help develop new technology.
