ECA Group has secured three naval simulator supply contracts, worth more than €6m, from undisclosed customers in Asia.

The first contract requires the company to supply a sonar simulator that is designed to train ships' crews to operate different types of sonars present on board.

ECA's SonSim is an entry level, PC-based training simulator that can be adapted to simulate any sonar system, ranging from active to passive sensors, used on-board submarines, warships, anti-submarine warfare (ASW) helicopters or maritime patrol aircraft.

“The company now has a complete offer of damage control simulators, for both underwater and surface vessels.”

Under a second contract, ECA will deliver a submarine damage control simulator that allows training in anti-fire and anti-flood operation to enhance the crew's capacity to survive damage sustained by a modern ship.

With this order for a simulator for submarines, the company now has a complete offer of damage control simulators, for both underwater and surface vessels.

ECA will upgrade a driver training simulator (surface ship simulator) for a customer that has been equipped with the company's simulator for several years.

The company's surface ship simulator can be integrated in the same system for single and multi-domain complex warfare scenarios, the company said.

ECA said that these three orders confirm its capability to innovate and adapt to its navy customers' requirements by offering technically advanced and competitive solutions.

The company offers a complete range of naval simulators, including operator training simulators, tactical training simulators for a force comprising several vessels and aircraft, and crew training simulators for submarines or surface vessels.
