BAE Systems and distributed computing specialists Hadean will work together to explore developing next generation training for the military forces of tomorrow.
Under a Memorandum of Understanding signed at IT2EC 2022 in London, UK, the parties will explore opportunities to apply BAE Systems expertise in military training to Hadean's technology to power a single synthetic environment, enabling air, land, sea, space and cyber forces to plug in and train together.
Hadean’s next-generation platform brings together data and computation at scale, providing a unified platform for single synthetic environments, situational awareness and decision support. This will allow military forces to regularly and securely train in a virtual world gaining crucial battlefield experiences without the challenges and constraints of live collective training and its limited warfare scenarios.
“The battlespace our customers are operating in is changing rapidly so we are adapting to stay ahead of the curve by partnering with cutting-edge companies like Hadean to meet this challenge,” said Andy Kendall, Director of Training Strategy for BAE Systems’ Air sector.
“Collaborating with BAE Systems will allow us to progress digital transformation, where governments and militaries will be able to leverage our joint solutions to take advantage of the latest emerging spatial computing technologies to maximise their mission preparedness,” said Craig Beddis, CEO and co-founder of Hadean. “Legacy training simulations will be overcome through Hadean’s scalable infrastructure and BAE Systems’ significant experience to achieve massive, cross-domain synthetic environments that truly represent the complexity of modern battle spaces.”
The initial proof of concept to be delivered by BAE Systems and Hadean will see them integrate multi-domain synthetic environments to enable complex collective training scenarios in a secure environment whilst leveraging data analytics and insights to improve the training capability and output.
BAE Systems is exhibiting at IT2EC 2022 at booth B3 taking place at the ExCel in London between 26-28 April. IT²EC is Europe’s primary forum where stakeholders from military, government, industry and academia connect and share knowledge about training, simulation and education technologies.
