Southwest-Based DTM In Successful Link-Up With Major U.S. Defense Company

DTM and a major U.S. defense company unveil an integrated ship's bridge and engine room trainer at Maritime 2010 in Sydney Australia. The integrated trainer offers independent or simultaneous training of bridge and engine room crews and is particularly effective in training the bridge team to respond to simulated machinery breakdowns.

The Royal Navy of Oman places order for state-of-the-art simulation training tools

UK based DTM Global, a global player in defence simulation training, has won a major contract with the Royal Navy of Oman to supply three new state-of-the-art training tools.

The contract includes a bridge trainer for interactive training in ship handling and bridge procedures; a radio communications trainer to sharpen communication skills and a recognition training system to maximise accuracy in combat identification.

The Fleetman Bridge Trainer, with a 270° field of view, simulated bridge and engine controls, instrument panels and electronic chart display, can simulate a range of routine operations, from the simple to highly complex and potentially dangerous situations. Training exercises can include ships, submarines and aircraft in different ports and at sea, with accurate depth contours and differing weather conditions. An integrated Radio Communications Trainer sharpens communication skills and improves operational safety.

The Insight recognition trainer uses high-resolution 3-dimensional images to help users identify the origins of a particular vehicle, ship or aircraft thereby reducing the risk of friendly fire in combat. The program is already in use by the US Air Force and 23 other Armed Forces globally.

Tim Dewing, Chief Executive of DTM Global, said: “There are few companies that offer such capability in a portable and highly flexible PC format. The Royal Navy of Oman will quickly reap the benefits of these highly effective training tools. DTM Global has grown rapidly as more and more Armed Forces recognise the significance of our networked training tools. Our quality of product, combined with our quality of service, is what really makes us stand out”.

Royal Saudi Air Force and Navy buy new simulation training systems from UK based DTM Global

November 2009

A UK based company has won two major contracts with the Royal Saudi Air Force and Navy. These are the latest in a series of successful contract wins for DTM Global, which has become a global player in defense simulation training.

The Royal Saudi Air Force is to use DTM Global’s ‘Insight’ recognition training system to maximise accuracy in combat identification. The King Fahad Naval Academy in Jubail is to use DTM Global’s Fleetman Bridge Trainer for interactive training in ship handling and bridge procedures.

Both of these contracts were awarded to DTM Global in conjunction with its Saudi partner, Rahaden Trading.

The ‘Insight’ programme uses high-resolution 3-dimensional images to help users identify the origins of a particular vehicle, ship or aircraft, thereby reducing the risk of friendly fire in combat. The program is already in use by the US Air Force and 23 other Armed Forces globally.

The Fleetman Bridge Trainer, with a 270° field of view, simulated bridge and engine controls, instrument panels and electronic chart display, can simulate routine, and potentially dangerous, real-life situations. Training exercises can include ships, submarines and aircraft in different ports and at sea, with accurate depth contours and weather conditions. An integrated Radio Communications Trainer sharpens communication skills and improves operational safety.

Tim Dewing, Chief Executive of DTM Global, said: “We are delighted to have won these prestigious contracts in Saudi Arabia. There are few companies that offer such capability in a portable and highly flexible PC format. We have seen DTM Global grow rapidly as more and more Armed Forces recognise the significance of our networked training tools. Our quality of product, combined with our quality of service, is what really makes us stand out.”

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.”
