Queen Elizabeth Class 3D training

An innovative 3D model that is being used for safety and familiarisation training has been developed by BAE Systems in conjunction with BMT Defence Services.
Providing a representation of key compartments and escape routes on the aircraft carrier, the technology ensures BAE Systems personnel, ships staff and visitors to the Queen Elizabeth Class (QEC) aircraft carriers are familiar with the ship’s layout, escape and evacuation routes. A fundamental part of training for this new class of ship, those taking part will also become familiar with the location of key pieces of safety equipment on board.
 
It means those working on board the largest aircraft carriers built for the Royal Navy are fully prepared and familiar with the layout of the ships, as well escape routes and safety procedures, long before they arrive at their home port in Portsmouth.

John Newell, Head of QEC Class Output Management Support, said: “This innovative 3D solution will also have wider utility as these two ships come into service as a key part of the ongoing induction process for new joiners, a useful tool that when operational can be forwarded in advance to embarking forces both from the UK and other nations and a necessary precursor to any international industrial workforce working on these ships worldwide.” 
The technology ensures those carrying out the training are familar with the aircraft carriers long before they arrive at their home port in Portsmouth.

A dedicated facility housing the software that will train around 600 staff ahead of the arrival of HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales has been created within the Skills Development Centre at Portsmouth Naval Base.
 
The 3D model was created using BMT’s ENGAGE next-generation software, which allows the course trainers to create emergency scenarios including, casualties, fires and high pressure leaks. The system uses a standard games console controller and headset to allow fast navigation and an audible representation of the sounds and alarms that will be experienced. 
 
Simon Luck, BMT’s Head of Information Systems and Information Assurance, said: “We’ve been working on serious gaming and immersive virtual reality technologies for a number of years and as one of the original designers of the QEC, this is a great opportunity to further support our industry partners in the development of a safe, efficient and effective training solution for these iconic ships.”
