The MOD and QinetiQ working together to provide Defence Test & Evaluation and Training Support Services

Synthetic Training

Because QinetiQ understands people, technology, its customers, and their operational environments, it can rapidly adapt existing training systems to reflect the wide range of high-risk scenarios that may have to be faced.

Understanding of human characteristics and capabilities in cognitive, physical and social terms can be applied to recruit, train and retain personnel, and so improve operational readiness.

Leading the Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) and Emerging Technologies Evaluation and Exploitation (CETEE) project for the Defence Science & Technology Laboratory (Dstl), QinetiQ demonstrates how the use of gaming, mobile device and other consumer technologies benefits UK defence and security.

Outcomes based
Through significant research in optimising blends of live and synthetic training techniques, a model has been produced that can be applied to any training need.

Each of the effective training blends is traceable to an intimate link between research, experimentation, people and exquisite technology, maintained through decades of experience and understanding.
