Devon company strikes deal with German Air Force

Devon-based software company DTM Global has struck a further deal with the German Air Force following the successful introduction of its Insight Recognition* software, aimed at reducing the risk of ‘friendly fire’ in battle.

DTM Global supplies bespoke training, simulation and animation software products including the Insight Recognition Training System which provides multi-spectral interactive imagery in SCORM®-compliant distributive training format, using innovative recognition training techniques.

DTM Global’s Insight software has been so successful at the German Air Force School of Photographic Interpretation, in Furstenfeldbruck, that the German Federal Office for Military Technology and Procurement has purchased additional Insight software licenses and a 3-dimensional (3D) database module. This update will enable the German Air Force to provide specialist recognition training using state-of-the-art 3D software.

This latest deal coincides with a further round of funding from Finance South West, which is part funded by the EU through the Objective Two Programme for the South West and has now invested £11.7 million in 91 businesses in the region, levering over £26 million into the South West economy and creating or safe guarding almost 800 jobs.

Chris Notman-Smith, DTM Global International Sa les and Marketing Manager, said: “We are delighted the German Air Force has chosen DTM Global to supply our 3D database module which we have successfully delivered within 2 weeks of receiving the order.”

Chris Burt, Business Fund Manager for Finance South West, says: “This latest deal with the German Air Force is a further example of the innovative quality of DTM Global’s products. We are delighted to have played our part in the company’s continuing success.
