You have complex, expensive equipment that has to be maintained,
and you cannot afford to take it offline just to support the requisite
maintenance training. What you really need is a virtual maintenance
The cost savings and benefits of our virtual training solutions for maintenance training include:
- maximising trainee and instructor ratios with multiple trainees interacting with the system simultaneously
- content that can be accessed any time a trainee requires refresher training
distributed architecture that allows trainees and instructors to be
operating from different locations using remote computer networks
- a reduced dependency on paper-based training manuals
- avoiding the risk of damage to expensive operational equipment by an inexperienced trainee.
KBR Training Solutions has an established capability and
expertise in the field of virtual maintenance training. Our virtual
training solutions successfully combine the original equipment
manufacturer's technical data and maintenance instructions, specialist
instructional design and high fidelity real time 3D environments.
We designed, developed and delivered virtual maintenance
training systems for the Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter (the ARH
Tiger) and the MRH90 troop lift helicopter, which were built by
Eurocopter and Australian Aerospace for the Australian Defence Force.
The ARH Tiger Virtual Avionics Systems Trainer (VAST) and
the MRH90 Virtual Systems Trainer (VST) are based on KBR Training
Solutions' Virtual Training Device architecture - known as the VTD.
The VTD engages trainees in a virtual environment where
they interact with real-time, high fidelity 3D models of the actual
helicopter equipment. Trainee safety is of paramount importance. By
using the VTD, the trainees' first contact with the equipment is in a
safe virtual environment. Moreover, if a trainee fails a critical step
in a procedure, the instructor is notified.
The system features an integrated Learning Management
System and Trainee interactions are monitored by the system in multiple
It is designed to be run on standard commercial ("off the
shelf") computer hardware using multiple computer or touch screen
