Bagira Systems and partner Van Halteren Defence have won the Netherlands’ Ministry of Defence (MoD) tender to supply the simulator for its National Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) training centre and to maintain and operate it for a period of 15 years. The centre provides education, training and support in the CBRN domain for military personnel and first responders. The system will simulate, teach and train for various CBRN scenarios, ensuring mission readiness of all trainees’ levels and responsibilities.
The new simulator is based on Bagira’s unique and highly realistic B-ONE 3D imagery software, which is the engine and at the core of Bagira’s simulators. It includes multiple elements which together enable interactive training in a highly realistic and dynamic environment. With a special standardised skeleton and interchangeable animation, B-ONE flexibly, rapidly and accurately enables the creation and presentation of many different types of scenarios. By empowering the realistic nature of the simulated environment, B-ONE optimises the training experience.
Using B-ONE, the Bagira CBRN simulator realistically and dynamically simulates changing CBRN events, exercising all levels of command and all relevant functions required to operate under changing conditions and environmentally-affected situations.
Bagira’s simulation accurately monitors the positions of each trainee at their physical locations within the training area, and follows up on individual performance while identifying hazardous substances and reacting to changes at the scene and to threat evolution. It allows after action review, feedback and lessons-learned assurance, and makes use of the latest versions of smart devices and applications for ease of operation.
“This is the second system we shall supply to The Netherland’s Ministry of Defense, following the Joint Fires Training and Exercise System (JFTES) to be supplied in 2019. This further strengthens our bonds with a NATO member state”, commented Bagira’s General Manager, Yaron Mizrachi.
