New MASS Electronic Warfare training facility opens
MASS has announced that it has opened a new state-of-the-art Electronic Warfare (EW) training centre in Lincoln. The training facility will allow students to learn in high-tech but relaxed surroundings using the latest EW, radar and communications system simulators.
According to the company, the training facility brings together experts with operational and technical EW expertise, academics and technical specialists to provide a classroom experience that helps students learn new skills though simulation and scenario-based visualisation tools.
The centre features four advanced training rooms, which utilise interactive training, smart boards, touch screens and leading computer software. There are also syndicate rooms where students can prepare briefings, brainstorm and also spend time discussing their course work, to maximise benefits of the training.
Ashley Lane, Managing Director of MASS, said: ‘We have delivered over 40,000 days of high quality EW training in recent years to armed forces personnel worldwide, ranging from one-day courses to one year courses, including MSc qualifications and on-the-job training too. This additional facility and desirable location will enable us to continue to attract and retain some of the most highly-skilled training staff, and also provide a service that will help armed forces from around the world to develop their own indigenous EW capability.’
