Full Warship Trainer Development Planned

Press Release
Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Thales Germany & Transas Marine International sign a cooperation agreement to develop & market a Full Warship Trainer (FWST).

This modular simulation solution, which will be offered in various configurations, is the first of its kind to create a virtual simulation of an entire warship for training purposes: this encompasses the ship's control from the bridge, the work in the engine room, CMS (Combat Management System) training, realistic doorgunner exercises for helicopter missions or weapons training for boarding teams.

Thales Germany contributes to this cooperation its years of experience developing generic tactical and strategic trainers, as well as forward looking weapons simulators for civilian and military users.

Transas has a world-wide reputation and comprehensive know-how implementing the latest generation of ship bridge simulators and engine room trainers. Since both partners plan to contribute their already widely proven product portfolio, a first generation configuration of the FWST is expected to be available to the market in short order.

Going forward, this innovative training system will enable individual teams to train various scenarios, for instance as part of the classical navigation training on the bridge, or a classic skirmish from an operations centre. But as part of the final deployment preparation, all individual teams of a ship's crew (e.g. bridge, operations centre and engine room, as well as deployed units, such as boarding teams and their airborne and floating security components) operate as a complex unit.
