More Rheinmetall simulators for Thai navy
Rheinmetall will supply the Royal Thai Navy with a Naval Warfare Training Simulator (NWTS) under a contract announced on 5 April.
The NWTS will be based on Rheinmetall's Action Speed Tactical Trainer. It will be used to prepare personnel for a variety of combat scenarios, including engaging mines as well as surface, aerial and underwater targets. The company's Advanced Naval Synthetic Environment software will be utilised to enable rapid generation of synthetic scenarios.
The contract includes the construction of a new building and infrastructure, with the facility set to enter service in 2019.
The facility will be able to be networked with the Thai navy's existing Submarine Command Team Trainer (SCTT) and Anti-Submarine Warfare Simulator (ASWS) systems to generate new, sophisticated and realistic scenarios in all three of the training systems.
Both the SCTT and ASWS were supplied by Rheinmetall.
