The MoD in London has awarded a five-year contract to Ravenswood Solutions to provide the British Army with tactical engagement simulation in Kenya (TESIK), the California-based company announced on 3 March.

In collaboration with Swiss-based laser engagement systems provider RUAG, global logistics provider Agility and UK-based engineering and technical services corporation QinetiQ, Ravenswood will provide British troops training in Kenya and other locations with instrumentation, weapon simulators, battlefield effects and instrumented after-action reviews (I-AARs). RUAG’s laser-based live-simulation system (designated GLADIATOR) will interface with Ravenswood’s instrumentation system (known as the Mobile Ground Truth System) to generate high-fidelity exercise data, track troops and vehicles over a large, remote training area and produce I-AARs to improve training.

TESIK is Ravenswood’s first major contract with the UK MoD for turnkey exercise support and instrumentation services.

Team Ravenswood is thrilled to begin building a strong, trust-based partnership with our new client, the UK Ministry of Defence,” commented Ravenswood CEO Dan Donoghue. “We tailored our best-in-industry capabilities to meet the British Army’s training needs, and we are honoured that they have put their trust and confidence in us.”
