Navantia gets a new contract in Australia
The Royal Australian Navy has contracted an extension of the supply of the Integrated Platform Management System, with the target of incorporating an advanced training system on board: On Board Training System (OBTS).
The OBTS consists of a software of simulation that provides to the crews a training facility, thanks to the simulation of the equipments and systems connected to the IPMS, as well as his dynamic response to the actions of the operator.
The software implements a dynamic coherent real-time simulation and allows the operators of the IPMS consoles, to connect to a virtual ship with the same behaviour that the real one, for individual and in-groups training.
The OBTS is a complement of the IPMS that provides a high degree of training to the crews in order to respond to any possible situation in real navigation. The OBTS is implemented on the basis of the technology COMPLEX/SIMPLEX developed by Navantia Sistemas.
The value of this extension of supply is of approximately 3.1 million euros, and will be developed during a term of 24 months.
Australia has a strategic importance for Navantia, country where besides the successes obtained in the area of the naval construction, it has managed to be a reference in the systems area, as the supply of the Integrated Platform Management System of the ships.
Navantia is also initiating activities in the area of life cycle support, where it foresees to be a relevant actor, not only in the maintenance of the supplied ships, but also in the maintenance of the systems and equipments integrated in the platforms: ALHD, LLC and AWD.
