Bagira to Supply & Operate CBRN Simulator

Bagira Systems and Van Halteren Defence (VHD) won the Netherlands’ Ministry of Defense tender to supply the simulator for their National Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) training center, and to maintain and operate it for a period of 15 years. The center provides education, training and support in the CBRN domain for military personnel and first responders. The system will simulate, teach and train for various CBRN scenarios, ensuring mission readiness of all trainees’ levels and responsibilities.

The new simulator is based on Bagira’s highly realistic B-ONE 3D imagery software, which is at the engine and core of Bagira’s simulators. It includes various elements, which together enable interactive training in a highly realistic and dynamic environment. With a special standardized skeleton and interchangeable animation, B-ONE flexibly rapidly and accurately enables the creation and presentation of many different types of scenarios.

Using B-ONE, the Bagira CBRN simulator realistically and dynamically simulates changing CBRN events, exercising all levels of command, and all relevant functions involved to operate under changing conditions and environmentally affected situations.

Bagira’s simulation accurately monitors the positions of each trainee at their physical location within the training area and follows up on the individual’s performance while identifying hazardous substances and reacting to changes at the scene and to threat evolvement. It allows after action review, feedback and lesson-learned assurance, and makes use of the latest versions of smart devices and applications for ease of operation.
