U.S. Navy Develops 3D Simulation for Training

The United States Navy created MRTS 3D (Multipurpose Reconfigurable Training System) as a 3D training simulation that provides an interactive training experience via a multi-touch screen. The deployment of MRTS 3D onboard Lincoln contributes to satisfying future fleet requirements by improving individual performance and mission readiness. The simulations engage Sailors in a 3D world tailored to their job requirements.

Aside from that, the system can host and provide fewer interactive types of courseware designed to assist work performance and professional growth. The technology was employed for the first time on a Navy ship, the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72). The Naval Air Warfare Systems Command Training Systems Division (NAWC TSD), which creates training simulations for the Navy, established MRTS 3D.

“The time spent testing the MRTS 3D capabilities on Lincoln was important,” stated Cmdr. Roger Phelps, Ready Relevant Learning programme manager for the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC). “Feedback from all Abraham Lincoln participants, including end-users and leadership, has been both favourable and constructive as we go forward with the MRTS 3D system.”

MRTS 3D offers a variety of software simulations through realistic, virtual training on a variety of various platforms. Onboard Navy ships, MRTS 3D trainers are expected to be used in Sailor rate training courses and pre-deployment team training.

Training scenarios can generate defects for Sailors to address at various phases of the simulated operation. When a malfunction is identified, Sailors use the LCD monitors to follow shipboard protocols to restore the system to total operating capacity.

“The Sailors were well-versed in training “Phelps continued. “Finally, getting Sailors qualified and working together as a team, as well as improving their access to information, would significantly increase mission readiness.”

For eight days, approximately 170 Sailors received training on the Flight Deck Familiarisation Training Expansion Package (TEP), Mobile Electric Power Plant (MEPP), Operations Specialist VSIMS, Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Fuels) Conflagration Station and Pump room, and Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System.

Rear Adm. Pete Garvin, head of the NETC, acknowledges that the MRTS 3D implementation on Abraham Lincoln is a significant step forward for Ready Relevant Learning. Modernised training and delivery methodologies use best practices to guarantee that our Sailors are most equipped to battle and win at the deck plate while underway when needed. He also invites team feedback from Sailors on the waterfront to continue providing them with the tools they require for success.

Onboard Lincoln, sailors with varied levels of expertise gave the training high marks. The flight deck familiarisation programme successfully trained sailors in flight deck activities before becoming fully qualified. It eliminates the risks associated with training folks who have never worked on an active flight deck, while also giving visual references for how activities are carried out during flying operations.

The U.S. Army keep improving its technological capability. For example, United States Army Futures Command’s Software Factory recently worked on fielding the counter-unmanned aerial system training software. Software for counter-unmanned aerial simulation that models the operating systems of US military c-UAS.

As a result, the application allows operators to train in a variety of settings and locales. The flexible trainer can be used by operator teams to increase reaction time and engagement drills. According to Sergeant Mickey Reeve of the Massachusetts Army National Guard, the tools can encourage operators to become more proficient at their tasks, which could have a beneficial impact on the mission and save lives.

On the other hand, in today’s data-centric environment, the U.S. Department of Defence (DoD) recognised the importance of data advantages on the battlefield. John Sherman, the DOD’s CIO, underlined how data is a strategic asset like a weapon system.

Accurate, timely, and unquestionably actionable data and information can create and maintain battlefield advantage. Thus, he encourages efforts to use data to assist warfighters, senior policymakers, and intelligence leaders to rapidly use data and information to drive operational effects at scale and speed.
