German Navy receives nautical training facility

11th December 2018 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rheinmetall has delivered a new nautical training facility to the German Navy School in Mürwik on the Baltic, the company announced on 6 December.

The system, called Ausbildungsausstattung Nautische Schiffsführung (AANS), will be used for training all German Navy cadets and future watch officers, and for preparing bridge personnel for nautical operations. The training will range from basic navigation and nautical training through to crew resource management, such as helping bridge teams prepare for operations.

The AANS includes two large and four small bridge simulators, six trainer stations, an auditorium for post-operation briefings as well as additional infrastructure for planning exercises and administrating and updating the database.

The German Navy’s surface combatants, including minesweepers and supply ships, are modelled in the AANS. In addition, numerous German and NATO maritime training areas are replicated, as are current and potential areas of operation.

The training facility will also be used by the German Federal Police.
