The contract scope includes infrastructure upgrades and migration to a common PROTEUS simulation core for all the RNoN’s Kongsberg delivered simulators, new visual image generation, a generic HLA Evolved interface enabling further simulator participation in joint collaborative exercises and a new PROTEUS map centric instructor station.
The contract has a value of 49 MNOK and will be delivered to the RNoN training establishment KNM Tordenskjold at Haakonsvern naval base in 2016.
"This contract is the result of Kongsberg’s long and proven relationship with RNoN. RNoN’s decision to further upgrade and improve its PROTEUS based simulator infrastructure strengthens our position as supplier of simulator systems, and in this context this is a very important reference contract for Kongsberg", says Executive Vice President Leiv Inge Steig in Kongsberg Defence Systems.
