Combat Simulation Prepares Riverine Sailors for Deployment

Story Number: NNS121116-11
Release Date: 11/16/2012 12:58:00 PM

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (NNS) -- Thirteen Sailors from Coastal Riverine Group (CORIVGRU) 2 completed training with the use of a combat simulator during an Embarked Security Combat Skills (ESCS) course in Portsmouth, Va., Nov. 16.
Embarked security teams board high-value assets to provide force protection to noncombatant Military Sealift Command (MCS) vessels and contracted ships around the world, ensuring safe passage for the ships and crews, specifically within the 5th Fleet Area of Responsibility.
"We teach them all the basic tools and fundamentals they need to conduct embarked security team missions," said Master-at-Arms 1st Class Beverly Henson, ESCS instructor and coordinator. "While deployed, these teams protect ships that are contracted by the Navy but don't have the weapons to defend themselves efficiently through dangerous areas."
The training course utilizes the Laser Shoot Littoral Combat Simulator, developed by Laser Shot and Virtual Battle Space 2, to help prepare the students for the challenges of their upcoming deployment to Bahrain by exposing them to scenarios they may encounter.
"This training is kind of a crash course to prepare us for deployment," said Master-at-Arms Seaman Lance Shults, a student attending the course. "I have never done anything like this before. It's all brand new to me. We're getting all the training we can here, so we're prepared for when we get to Bahrain."
The simulator enhances the classroom portion of the course, bringing a sense of realism to training scenarios by using a central platform surrounded by screens. An instructor controls a computer, which projects an image of the open ocean onto the screens as well as an array of variables - ships, small watercraft, floating objects, etc., the students may encounter while on deployment. The central platform serves as the vessel from which the students operate, utilizing a system of hydraulics to simulate the movements of an actual boat.

Laser Shot, in collaboration with the Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Division, has been awarded a contract valued at $944,000 for the delivery and installation of Tactical Weapons Simulators™ (TWS) to provide firearms training for the Colombian Marines. In a co-ownership, the Colombian Navy and Marines needed to find a better way to train their personnel in a more cost effective manner, while still providing an excellent standard of military training.

Colombian Marines wanted to focus on individual and collective training efforts towards marksmanship and tactical skill sets. The contract will provide the Colombian Marines TWS systems with 40’ and 20’ wide screens for tactical and marksmanship training using virtual imagery walls that provide visual immersion into a combat or marksmanship environment. The system includes an array of Laser Shot’s marksmanship and judgmental training courseware as well as Virtual Battlespace 2 (VBS2) for tactical training.
