Raytheon, a technology company specialising in defence, civil government and cybersecurity solutions has announced today it’s won two coveted Brandon Hall Bronze awards for virtual reality (VR) training systems that were developed for the US Army.
The awards – highly prestigious within the training industry – were part of the Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards Program. The company won a Bronze award in Best Use of Games or Simulations for its Joint Multinational Readiness Center Mobile Instrumentation System. Developed in partnership with US Army Europe, the system blends virtual, live and constructive training into one global training environment.
Raytheon then won a second Bronze Award in the same category for the Joint Pacific Multinational Readiness Capability Instrumentation System. A system which provides US Army Pacific a “strategic readiness bridge” to ensure enhanced home-station unit readiness between Combat Training Center rotations and when CTC rotations are not available and extend training and readiness opportunities to our Joint and Multinational Partners.
“This special recognition reinforces Raytheon’s position as a premier provider of training and training support services,” said Pete Vangjel, vice president of Raytheon’s Global Training Solutions business. “We’ve trained millions of people around world to help prepare them for the world’s most important missions.”
The two VR training systems allow organizations to network together virtually, and appear ‘shoulder to shoulder’ in the training scenario. This helps reduce costs on transport, fuel and supplies necessary to move large organizations significantly.
