Royal Thai Navy contracts Rheinmetall for training simulator delivery

The Royal Thai Navy has contracted German defense contractor Rheinmetall for the delivery of an additional training simulator.

Under the contract, Rheinmetall’s Simulation and Training unit will supply Thailand with a turnkey system known as the Naval Warfare Training Simulator (NWTS). Worth several million euros, the order includes construction of a new building, including infrastructure.

According to the comppany, the facility is scheduled to go into operation in the third quarter of 2019.

Based on Rheinmetall’s action speed tactical trainer (ASTT), the Royal Thai Navy’s NWTS will be used to prepare personnel for a variety of combat scenarios, e.g. engaging mines as well as surface, aerial and underwater targets. The company further noted that the system will feature its advanced naval synthetic environment (ANSE) software which will enable rapid generation of synthetic scenarios.

In addition, the new training facility can be connected to the Royal Thai Navy’s existing submarine command team trainer (SCTT) and anti-submarine warfare simulator (ASWS) systems, both of which were also supplied by Rheinmetall.
