I/ITSEC 2015: Raytheon Global Training Solutions

From battlefields to oil refineries, Raytheon Global Training Solutions (GTS)can transform training in high-consequence environments, leveraging deep expertise and the latest technologies to align tailored learning and asset lifecycle solutions to mission and business objectives.

Budget pressures combined with uncertain threats mean that readiness is more important than ever - training has be realistic, relevant and cost-effective in order to husband scarce resources, while providing opportunities for modernisation. Some US Army training aids, for example, are more than 30 years old. Some training techniques and delivery methods, e.g. in instructor-led training, have not changed since the Korean War. Raytheon has trained more than 5 million US Army soldiers since 2008, while saving the Army more than $400 million in training sustainment costs and knows how to move military training into the 21st Century.

Weapons systems are becoming more and more technology-intensive, and soldiers have to learn how to use all this new technology in new ways, and most importantly, how to use it high stress, high consequence situations. Raytheon blends live, virtual and constructive (LVC) training to create a fully immersive environment, complete with battlefield special effects, that teach soldiers how to best leverage technology.
