Inzpire has successfully designed and delivered the first Exercise Steel Dragon of 2018 to the UK military, the company announced on 2 February.

The four-week exercise, which took place at the Royal Air Force’s Air Battlespace Training Centre (ABTC) throughout January, delivered joint fires and air-land integration training to the Royal Artillery.

The exercise included a five-day exercise repeated four times over a month-long period. The first day of each iteration allowed for a series of briefings and capability updates, followed by four days of intensive training, with the complexity of the scenarios gradually increasing across the week.

Training in a synthetic environment allowed for the safe integration of a range of surface-launched weapon effects with fast jets, attack helicopters and ISTAR assets.

Inzpire’s team worked directly alongside UK military role players, and was supported by QinetiQ, Plexsys and Boeing, who provided both the operating system and software support for the exercises.

Richard Tattersall, ABTC operations director, Inzpire, said: ‘It is very satisfying to see our training audiences improve through the week. We work hard to expose areas of weakness in their processes to allow for development and constantly strive to make them better as a team than they are when they arrive.’
