Operational Readiness Training

Innovation is the focus

We understand the rapid evolution of military capability and the risks presented by emerging threats. Security and Innovation are at our core, and with unique capabilities such as our Advanced Digital Radio Frequency Memory (A-DRFM) pod, and integration with our future ACMI system, we are moving towards real-time, secure, data-linked capability that offers genuine 5th generation and advanced maritime training opportunities.

Innovation remains a primary focus as we evolve to integrate and blend our new technology and training solutions into the emerging live-virtual constructive (LVC) domain. This will be a key evolution as we continue to provide the best possible fidelity of operational readiness training in the future.
