U.S. Army Awards Contract to Enhance Marksmanship Training

Source : Military Simulation & Training Magazine Link The U.S. Army awarded Aptima a $168,000 Other Transaction Authority (OTA) agreement to develop a prototype methodology that aligns current Army virtual, small-arms, marksmanship training systems with real-world, live-fire marksmanship training.“The purpose of this agreement is for Aptima to develop a methodology that efficiently transitions soldiers from basic to more advanced small arms marksmanship skills,” said Tim Greeff, chief executive officer of the National Security Technology Accelerator (NSTXL). “Once completed, the methodology will be sent to the Army training schools for refinement and incorporation into future Army training d

CM Labs Develops First Simulator to Train Megamax STS Crane Operators

STS crane training module, with 56 meter water side outreach and tandem spreader, to help operators develop skills required to work with Ultra Large Container Ships Montreal, QC, July 31, 2018 — CM Labs Simulations, world leader in port equipment training, today announced the release of the new megamax STS training pack—the largest ship-to-shore (STS) crane ever simulated—developed to minimize the training challenges presented by this new class of STS cranes. Training both new and experienced operators on the competencies required for loading and unloading the world’s largest container ships, the innovative simulation provides valuable seat and training time in a virtual megamax crane.

Vortex Studio Powers Bluedrop’s Rescue Hoist Simulators to Save Lives and Cut Training Costs

CM Labs’ industry-leading simulation platform helps Bluedrop save clients upwards of $7,000 per hour of flight time Montreal, QC, July 26, 2018 — CM Labs today announced that its Vortex Studio platform is being used to power simulators developed by Bluedrop Training & Simulations to train for effective helicopter rescue hoists. Bluedrop is leveraging CM Labs’ Vortex Studio technology for unique training simulators in development for military and aerospace clients. In one such partnership, Bluedrop used Vortex Studio to develop a training platform for the twin-rotor CH-47 Chinook helicopter. The 42-foot-long simulator applies VR technology to teach users how to operate the aircraft’s three ho

Parsons invests in MASA SWORD to simulate complex operations

Source : Military Simulation & Training Magazine Link Parsons Corporation, an engineering, construction, technical and professional services firm, purchased a number of MASA SWORD licenses to evaluate operations research and weapon platforms. Parsons is involved in research and development of mission-critical, next-generation technologies in the fields of engineering, integration, and simulation. The simulation is used to study the behavior of complex systems and solve operations research questions. Parsons says it chose MASA’s SWORD software because of its ability to simulate complex scenarios without human interaction, its ease of use and its open architecture. The AI-based simulation soft
