DTM Global Secures Deal With The Royal Guard

Devon-based software company DTM Global has been awarded a contract to supply The Royal Guard Oman with software specifically designed to reduce the risk of ‘friendly fire’ in battle.

DTM Global will provide The Royal Guard with the Combat ID Recognition software ‘Insight’, with delivery taking place over the summer. The contract win comes after two successful deals with the Royal Saudi Air Force and Royal Saudi Navy in the last two months, the combination of which has doubled DTM Global’s turnover in the last year.

DTM Global, in Totnes, supplies off-the-shelf and bespoke simulation, training and cutting edge real-time 3D visualisation software products, such as Fleetman and Insight, as well as fully integrated ‘turnkey’ simulation solutions to customers across the world.

Insight is a computer-based recognition training system which provides interactive, multi-spectral visualisation of air, land and sea platforms. Designed to reduce the risk of ‘friendly fire’ or fracticide in battle, Insight formed the basis of NATO’s prototype Combat Identification Training System (NATO CITS), produced in 22 languages including Arabic.

DTM Global also supplies the Fleetman family of naval training systems, a turnkey bridge trainer, and a naval tactical communications trainer. Around 90% of the company’s business is for export with customers in the USA, Australia, Germany, and the Middle East, as well as the Royal Navy and British Army.

Chris Notman-Smith, International Sales & Marketing Manager for DTM Global, said: “This contract win further cements our position as a key supplier of bespoke training, simulation and visualisation products, which can make a real difference to human safety on the ground. We look forward to working with further military organisations in the future.”
