DCI wins EDA Naval Training Support Study contract

6th January 2014 - 16:18 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


DCI will conduct a Naval Training Support Study (NTSS) to look at training for navigation, mine warfare and diving under a contract awarded by the European Defence Agency (EDA). DCI’s successful bid for the study was announced on 6 January.

The NTSS project falls under the European Union’s ‘Pooling & Sharing’ process, which has been put into place to enable member states to reduce costs and optimise the efficiency of European defence capabilities through the sharing and pooling of military capacities. This includes aligning military requirements where possible, working in close cooperation for research, training courses and exercises, and sharing the same procedures and command structures.

The NTSS study will be conducted by DCI over the course of the following year. The fields of navigation, mine warfare and diving will be each covered with the aim of providing a landscape of existing capabilities; proposing possible common requirements; deriving shortfalls based on the gap analysis; and proposing recommendations to solve them

Admiral Bruno Nielly, executive vice-president, DCI-NAVFCO, said: ‘DCI is proud to work jointly with the EDA on this study. Thanks to this project, we are able to prove once again that we are experts in the naval training field. We can also be part of the search for synergies which are strengthening the European Security and Defence Policy.’

DCI will work with British company SCS on the study, and will draw on its work with the French armed forces to fulfil the requirements of the project.
