Connecting into the three platforms simultaneously via satellite communications, the QinetiQ, Inzpire and BAE Systems team enabled the delivery of the synthetic collective training environment to the Royal Navy.
QinetiQ will provide the US Army’s Threat Systems Management Office with a uniquely developed version of its Banshee Jet 80+. Known as the MQM-185B, the target will help the US Army train for real-world scenarios by flying the hyper realistic threat targets.
QinetiQ is once more assisting in the delivery of Exercise Formidable Shield (FS), a live-fire combined integrated air and missile defence exercise taking place at MOD Hebrides in Scotland, and Andoya in Norway.
QinetiQ Training and Simulation has been awarded a contract by the UK Ministry of Defence to design and supply a shore-based trainer that simulates the Platform Management System found aboard Britain’s fleet of six Type 45 Destroyers.
Operating from one of QinetiQ’s T3E ranges, Ministry of Defence Aberporth, Exercise SHARPSHOOTER 22 allowed the ship’s personnel to use live ammunition from medium and close-range weapons against dynamic remote controlled surface vessels and static targets.
