NGRAIN solutions selected by US Army

29th November 2011 - 17:06 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


NGRAIN has been selected by the United States Coast Guard and United States Army to provide 3D simulation-based maintenance training solutions. According to the company, they will provide Virtual Task Trainer (VTT) solutions to help standardise the Coast Guard’s teaching methods for maintenance training of the Honda BF225 Outboard Engine, and expand M1A2 Abrams Tank skill proficiency for US Army troops.

NGRAIN’s VTT for the Honda BF225 will enable personnel to interact with the virtual equipment in real time, including practicing installation, maintenance and repair procedures.

For the Army’s Master Gunners Course for the M1A2 Abrams Tank the VTT solution will build on the previous training solutions NGRAIN delivered in 2010 and will convey the principles and procedures for Advanced Conduct of Fire (ACOF) and Basic Electricity for the M1A2. According to NGRAIN, the Army will use the solutions in an instructor-led environment and provide it to soldiers so that they can use it at home, during on-the-job (OJT) training, or once deployed.
