SP's MAI - - SIMULATION -

The Caribbean Mar­itime In­sti­tute (CMI) has or­dered mul­ti­ple VSTEP sim­u­la­tors for its new high-tech sim­u­la­tion cen­tre at the cam­pus in Kingston, Ja­maica. VSTEP will de­liver all sim­u­la­tor so­lu­tions for the fa­cil­ity, in­clud­ing a NAUTIS full mis­sion bridge sim­u­la­tor and a class C engine room sim­u­la­tor. CMI also or­dered full class­room set­ups for both NAUTIS desk­top train­ers and NAUTIS engine room desk­top train­ers.

The new sim­u­la­tion cen­tre of CMI will serve as one of the most in­no­va­tive hubs for mar­itime train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion in the Carib-

UK en­gi­neer­ing spe­cial­ists, Dytecna, has been awarded a com­pet­i­tive con­tract from UK Min­istry of De­fence (MoD) through the De­fence Equip­ment & Sup­port (DE&S) agency to pro­vide three Part Task Train­ers (PTTs) for rear crew train­ing for the A400M At­las air­craft. Bri­tain has 22 A400M air­craft on or­der with the first air­craft due to be de­liv­ered in Septem­ber 2014.

The PTTs will en­able the Royal Air Force (RAF) to con­duct spe­cific to type train­ing on load­ing, un­load­ing and despatch pro­ce­dures, cargo re­straint tech­niques, air­craft drill and parachut­ing tech­niques for the A400M At­las air­craft. This award is an­other ma­jor step in pre­par­ing for the new A400M fleet and fol­lows on from the work al­ready un­der­way at RAF Brize Nor­ton on the new Thales-Air­bus Mil­i­tary train­ing cen­tre.

The de­vices will be lo­cated at the RAF’s tac­ti­cal and strate­gic trans­port base at Brize Nor­ton in Ox­ford­shire and will be used by the Air Move­ments School, 47 Air Despatch Squadron and the Air­borne De­liv­ery Wing to con­duct ad­vanced train­ing for A400M op­er­a­tions. In ad­di­tion Dytecna will pro­vide in-ser­vice sup­port for the de­vices un­til 2018.

This mul­ti­mil­lion-pound con­tract builds upon Dytecna’s pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence in de­liv­er­ing high fidelity C-130J fuse­lage train­ing de­vices for the RAF and the US Air Force.
