4GD was tasked with assisting a Royal Navy unit with turning an existing structure into a training facility to teach ship boarding/clearance. Through careful, and detailed, engagement 4GD created a delivery that maximised the available space. Creating a reconfigurable training space on barracks significantly enhances the frequency, and quality, of training.
Key project features
This delivery, had several unique features;
- 20% of the available panel units are doors making the facility hugely reconfigurable.
- Lightweight and single person “slideable” the system enables reconfiguration by single instructors. Ensuring even the smallest team can get the benefit of the SimWall system.
- Bespoke grid painted onto the floor making scenario building significantly easier.
- 3’ panel width along with the grid makes the creation of narrow passageways simple. Ensuring the replication of ship’s corridors is possible and allowing on barracks maritime boarding training.
- Phase 2 would see the creation of bespoke units to replicate unique aspects of maritime operations such as portholes and watertight doors.
- While not deployable a delivery of this sort of scale can be deployable in our DSS (see video below).
