Submarine virtual reality (VR) training.

As part of their new strategy, the Royal Navy and their defence technology partner QinetiQ wanted to move more sea training to shore.

Submariner training presented a particular challenge, as it currently takes place onboard real submarines or in physical simulators, requiring travel to a specific site and only allowing a small number of trainees at a time.

This makes the training process time-consuming and expensive. Immerse developed a unique multi-user VR environment simulating a real submarine control room, complete with working displays, operators and multiple interaction points.

Helping trainees learn and practise skills in a realistic environment, with the instructor appearing as an additional head and pair of hands to point or guide them. All participants are also linked by voice as well as visually, enhancing the interactive realism and learning potential. Credit: music:
