SimiGon announces South American contract

23rd August 2012 - 10:39 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


SimiGon has announced that it has received a contract to provide an unnamed  South American country’s armed forces with its SIMbox training and simulation technology platform. The company made the announcement 22 August 2012.

The company said the contract marks the first time a country’s armed forces has chosen SIMbox as the training system to be deployed across its entire armed services.

Under the terms of the contract, SIMbox will be the baseline training technology used by SimiGon’s local partner, a newly formed government-owned company dedicated to the development of training and simulation systems.

SIMbox is an advanced, PC-based, distributed simulation and training technology platform. It provides advanced training capabilities such as high fidelity 3D simulation within a Learning Management System (LMS) and Learning and Content Management System (LCMS), a Virtual Instructor and Instructor Operator Station (IOS), AAR/debriefing, Reporting Tools and a robust simulation and training content development suite. 

According to the company, SimiGon will initially deliver SIMbox development systems, a wide range of training courses and on-the-job training to local partners’ software developers and support their simulation development activities.

Based on this, local partners’ developers will build their own SIMbox-based training and simulation content to support training of its armed forces, including the Cessna Caravan, Super Tucano, M1117 Armoured Security Vehicles and others. SIMbox-based training solutions will be deployed by the armed forces in training centres as well as for operational training and distributed joint forces training exercises.

SimiGon’s local partner will be required to purchase SIMbox Runtime licenses for the delivery of content to trainees. Delivery of the hardware and training will be complete by early 2013.
