Royal Thai Navy expands networked naval simulation capability with new Rheinmetall system

07 April 2017

The Royal Thai Navy (RTN) has acquired a naval warfare training simulator (NWTS) from Rheinmetall.

The system, which will be used to train RTN personnel for naval combat scenarios such as the prosecution of surface, aerial and underwater targets, and mine countermeasures operations, is scheduled to go operational in 2019, said the company in a statement on 5 April.

The RTN currently operates an anti-submarine warfare simulator (ASWS) training system and a submarine command team trainer (SCTT), both of which were delivered by Rheinmetall in 2010 and 2014 respectively, according to a Jane's report from 2015. The systems are at separate physical locations but are connected via a fibre-optic cable, allowing the simulators to network.
