NSC’s ability to immerse training audiences in realistic synthetic environments means our support to defence organisations is not restricted to operations on terra firma.
Employing game-based technology to project digital recreations of real-world locations or bespoke terrains on to a three-metre radius curved screen, we can provide simulations to serve land, air and sea domains.
This customisable capability provided the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory with a synthetic environment in which to explore means of improving maritime marksmanship.
Developed for use in trials to investigate novel training methods for Royal Navy and Royal Fleet Auxiliary personnel, NSC’s ship-mounted general-purpose machine gun (GPMG) simulator puts users’ fingers on the trigger of a realistic weapon and mount.
Compressed air provides haptic feedback and the simulator tracks the GPMG’s every move, exposing operators to engagements in an immersive, high-definition audio-visual environment.
The simulator is capable of replicating scenarios ranging from defending against attacks from small, fast-moving vessels to port-based security taskings and can be adapted to support land and air assets and myriad weapon systems.
