Kongsberg Provides Simulation Technology to British Navy

A new navigation simulator package for the British Navy will be available this year as part of Project Selborne’s modernization of British Navy training.

To deliver the new simulators, Kongsberg Digital has signed a contract with Capita, which runs Project Selborne, a 12-year program to modernize and deliver British Navy training.

Kongsberg Digital simulation technology will enable British Navy personnel to maximize operational efficiency in any situation, from single unit piloting to Replenishment at Sea and Task Group manoeuvres, day and night and in all weather conditions.  Simulators will reduce the risks, logistics and cost of marine training programs by enabling crews to train with more than one ship in the same scenarios.  In the future, new simulators will be integrated into different educational institutions and will allow Bridge Teams at Britannia Royal Naval College (BRNC), HMS Collingwood and HMNB Faslane to work together.

Andreas Jagtøyen, Vice President Digital Ocean at Kongsberg Digital, said: “We are proud to offer advanced simulator systems that contribute to building competence for safer operations at sea, and it is an honour to offer our solutions to the British Navy. Today, numerous naval academies around the world use our simulator systems for training and education purposes. This contract we signed with the British Navy will ensure recognition of our technology and strengthen our position in the field of marine simulator training.” 

David Hook, Managing Director of Capita Defence Training, said: “This new simulator suite will not only create highly realistic training scenarios for British Navy trainees, but will also play an important role in the Navy’s training program by allowing us to run, test and deliver regular updates without having to wait for holiday disruptions. This is a major milestone in Project Selborne’s mission to get better-educated people to the frontline faster, and I’m proud to work with Kongsberg Digital to deliver world-leading training for our Royal Navy personnel.”

Colonel Aaron Fisher, Commander of the British Navy Training Management Group, said: “The new Bridge Training Devices will modernize the world-class navigation training that has become synonymous with the British Navy. Future upgrades will enable training across multiple RN organizations through a secure network and provide training modernization for our people. It will provide a concrete example of the RN and ‘Team Fisher’ collaboration.”
