BMT Unveils Next Generation Training Solution
BMT Defence Services (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, has unveiled its immersive Virtual Reality (VR) training platform, Engage, at this year’s ITEC conference at London’s ExCeL Centre.
Designed to work across the full spectrum of military domains including land, air and sea, BMT Engage can support existing and new digital training scenarios due to its open and modular design. This in turn can present a more modern, flexible and efficient training experience for military personnel now and into the future.
Developed by BMT’s engineering experts and human factors specialists, Engage allows trainees to become immersed in a 3D virtual world and begin to learn and experience the training objectives in a safe and controlled environment. The trainer also has access to an interactive dashboard which presents a single holistic view of the training data. This empowers the instructor by giving a real time picture of the training activity against their trainee’s pre-defined learning objectives, enabling them to fully interact and inject support when needed.
Simon Luck, Head of Information Systems and Information Assurance at BMT Defence Services explains: “We wanted to create a truly immersive learning environment which is supportive of the trainer’s cognitive load, as well as the trainee’s learning development throughout their careers. Engage provides our customers with a powerful interface for their training data, ensuring that they can make timely decisions based on the intelligent analytics that are built into the platform. This is about providing users with the opportunity to take control of their own learning journey, capturing the data that matters to them.”
