25th January 2019 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Bluedrop Training & Simulation has received a $1 million contract to deliver a new simulator for Canadian Army vehicle-based gunnery mission training.

The immersive virtual training device will be used to teach, practice and evaluate remote weapon system crew gunnery skills and communication. The simulator will address target engagement, dangerous malfunctions, firing solutions and techniques as well as vehicle orientation limits such as rollover that may affect gunnery operations during missions. The device will combine physical and virtual simulation to heighten realism and enable crew to train in realistic scenarios.

Jean-Claude Siew, vice president of technology and simulation, Bluedrop, said: ‘Bluedrop is excited to be able to extend our expertise in training and simulation to support innovation within the Canadian Army. We are pleased that this simulator is going to increase access to higher fidelity training at home here in Atlantic Canada.’
