Netherlands Ministry of Defense has awarded Bagira Systems and Van Halteren Defence (VHD) a contract to supply simulator for the MoD's National Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) training center.
The contract includes maintenance and operation of the simulator for 15 years.
The center provides education, training and support in the CBRN domain for military personnel and first responders. The system will simulate, teach and train for various CBRN scenarios, ensuring mission readiness of all trainees’ levels and responsibilities, the company said in a statement Thursday.
The new simulator is based on Bagira’s B-ONE 3D imagery software, which is the engine and at the core of Bagira’s simulators. It includes various elements which together enable interactive training in a realistic and dynamic environment. With a standardized skeleton and interchangeable animation, B-ONE enables the creation and presentation of many different types of scenarios.
Using B-ONE the CBRN simulator simulates changing CBRN events, exercising all levels of command and all relevant functions involved to operate under changing conditions and environmentally effected situations.
The simulation accurately monitors the positions of each trainee at their physical location within the training area, and follows up on the individual’s performance while identifying hazardous substances and reacting to changes at the scene and to threat evolvement. It allows after action review, feedback and lesson-learned assurance, and makes use of the latest versions of smart devices and applications for ease of operation.
