Advanced Training Systems for British Army

Drawing from the latest high specification hardware and using Defense Virtual Simulation software, Elbit Systems UK’s Interim Combined Arms Virtual Simulation (Deployable) (ICAVS(D)) platform will deliver immersive virtual training  By DA Reporter / 16 Nov 2021

The British Army has selected Elbit Systems UK to deliver the Interim Combined Arms Virtual Simulation (Deployable) (ICAVS(D)) platform to support and inform the British Army’s Collective Training Transformation Program (CTTP).

Replacing the current in-service system, Unit-Based Virtual Trainer (UBVT), by 1 April 2022, ICAVS(D) has the potential to significantly exceed the current capability in scale, size and complexity. 

Drawing from the latest high specification hardware and using Defense Virtual Simulation software, the platform will deliver immersive virtual training and will help inform the requirements for the future replacement of the U.K.’s Command and Staff Training (CAST) and the Combined Arms Tactical Trainer (CATT) systems.

Usable by both regular and reserve soldiers in the British Army, ICAVS(D) will also provide the ability to conduct experimentation and collective readiness training, from vehicle crew to Combined Arms Sub-Unit. The platform will allow for rehearsal of complex operational environments in all weathers, terrains and environments, accurately reflecting the range of operational settings and equipment expected in contemporary operating environments.

Delivered as a full service by Elbit Systems UK’s Training Support Team, ICAVS(D) will be able to support the British Army’s training anywhere and at any time. It can be deployed within barracks and on training areas, giving users significantly increased flexibility in when and where they are able to train. 

“Increased flexibility and fidelity are crucial to the effective training of the British Armed Forces,” said Martin Fausset, CEO of Elbit Systems UK said.

“Elbit Systems UK’s deployable, high specification platform will enable the Army, both reserve and regular, to develop and maintain operational readiness for a range of environments and scenarios. We are already delivering advanced training capabilities to the British Army and Royal Navy and are proud of our continuous work to help keep our Armed Forces prepared for any situation.”
