You need to train your workforce to use expensive
difficult-to-access equipment under a variety of conditions, including
high risk environments - we have a solution for this.
For serious situations...
Games and games technology are already transforming the
way we educate and train people at all levels. Serious games can be used
for training personnel in what would otherwise be high risk, dangerous
or relatively inaccessible environments such as:
- emergency services
- mine site orientation and mining equipment
- industrial facilities
- military equipment and operations.
The use of the game platform for learning provides adult
learners with engaging interactions that improve retention and learning.
Research has shown that learning in a 3D environment provides the
learner with the feeling of immersion - that they are really there - and
this is enhanced in high fidelity virtual worlds. Adult learners also
prefer learning that is real-time, applies directly to their work
environment and is customisable. Serious games do all of this!
A serious training solution
KBR Training Solutions is
developing a comprehensive virtual training solution for the two Landing
Helicopter Dock (LHD) ships being delivered to the Australian Navy from
2013. These ships are being built by Navantia in Spain and delivered
and maintained by BAE Systems Australia.
The LHDs will be the largest ships ever to sail in the
Australian Navy fleet and will present a range of new challenges,
including determining the best method for providing training that does
not impact greatly on the ships' operational availability.
BAE Systems Australia has contracted KBR Training
Solutions to provide a comprehensive real-time 3D virtual environment
learning experience to address a wide range of training requirements for
the new ships. The LHD virtual training solution will utilise and build
upon the LHD Ship Walkthrough Computer Model (SWCM) previously
delivered by KBR Training Solutions and already accepted by the
The LHD virtual training solution represents a serious
games approach to individual and team based training in a
photorealistic, immersive real-time 3D environment. This solution's
architecture utilises Crytek's CryEngine® 3 real-time game engine.
