Thales wins 3D media contract for navy destroyers

Electronics company Thales has been awarded the second phase of a contract for the provision of interactive 3D media, which will be used for training maintainers of the long-range radar on the Royal Navy Daring-class (Type 45) destroyers.

This second phase, under contract with defence electronics supplier BAE Insyte, is to provide SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) conformant, web-enabled training media for Type 45 maintainer trainers.
Thales was awarded an initial contract in April 2007 for the provision of 3D training media for the RESM (Radar Electronic Support Measures) and medium-frequency sonar systems, which is now being used by the Type 45 Training Unit as part of training courses being run at HMS Collingwood.
