FE News: "Novatech Ltd Turn Royal Navy Reserves Training Virtual With New RHIB Simulators"

"The Royal Navy’s Pac 24 RHIBs are used for search and rescue, transferring stores and people, research and reconnaissance. Several shore establishments operate RHIBs and use them to train and maintain the skill set of sailors who have been selected for the demanding duty of coxswain at sea.

Not all sailors in the Royal Navy are full-time. The Royal Naval Reserves (RNR) is made up of around 3000 men and women, who give up their free time or take sabbaticals from work to train alongside the full-time sailors, learn new skills and deploy in support of operations around the world.

However in the past, in the critical area of RHIB (Rigid Hulled Inflatable Boat) handling, the RNR was constrained by the great British weather and the availability of resources when it came to this type of practical training. These variables would at times frustrate the training pipeline and consequently delay the qualifying of crucial members of a ship’s company and in the worse-case scenario, the ship’s commanding officer’s ability to operate their seaboat as effectively as they would like.

With more Reservists serving at sea in Offshore Patrol Vessels, for example, where RHIB driving is a required skill, this fragility in availability was unacceptable. A training solution offering a high degree of fidelity and accuracy was sought by the RN to resolve the issue."

I'd volunteer to throw buckets of water over them for added "realism" :)

And I know that RNR Cdr, I'll have words with him, playing computer games when he should be working!!

We'll never be allowed to touch it.

Someone will invent a 28 day course to qualify to supervise it's use, after which an SO2 will be required to submit a RA for each unit, By the time all this is done the lease will have expired and the kit will be collected in again.

Paper?
Don't be ridiculous.

The log will be computer based. On a stand-alone computer separate from all other MoD systems.
The computer will have a password. We, of course, won't be allowed to know the password. The computer will be in a different building to the simulator.
