Dignitas Technologies awarded training systems support
Dignitas Technologies has received an IDIQ contract from the US Naval Air Warfare Center to provide total life cycle support for US Navy training systems.
The $99 million contract covers support for the Multipurpose Reconfigurable Training System 3D (MRTS 3D) and the Virtual Interactive Shipboard Instructional Tour 3D (VISIT 3D) programmes.
Work includes development, production, integration, test and evaluation, delivery and sustainment through to January 2025.
MRTS 3D is an advanced virtual reality simulation of the diesel auxiliary system used on modern US submarines designed to give crew hands-on training experience handling equipment.
VISIT 3D is a familiarisation trainer that provides both assisted and unassisted exploration of a 3D rendered environment. Trainees interact with courseware, workstation simulations, reference documents, quizzes, and common media files in order to practice and execute procedures to facilitate basic shipboard and warfare qualifications.
