Elbit Systems UK to provide advanced Training Systems capabilities to the British Army

5 November 2021

London, 5th November 2021 – Elbit Systems UK has been selected to deliver the Interim Combined Arms Virtual Simulation (Deployable) ICAVS(D), a pathfinder project for the British Army’s Collective Training Transformation Programme (CTTP). 

Replacing the current in-service system, Unit-Based Virtual Trainer (UBVT), by 1 April 2022, ICAVS(D) has the potential to significantly exceed the current capability in scale, size and complexity. Drawing from the latest high specification hardware and using Defence Virtual Simulation software, the platform will deliver immersive virtual training and will help inform the requirements for the future replacement of the UK’s Command and Staff Training (CAST) and the Combined Arms Tactical Trainer (CATT) systems.

Usable by both regular and reserve soldiers in the British Army, ICAVS(D) will also provide the ability to conduct experimentation and collective readiness training, from vehicle crew to Combined Arms Sub-Unit. The platform will allow for rehearsal of complex operational environments in all weathers, terrains and environments, accurately reflecting the range of operational settings and equipment expected in contemporary operating environments.

Delivered as a full service by Elbit Systems UK’s Training Support Team, ICAVS(D) will be able to support the British Army’s training at a time and place of their choosing. It can be deployed within barracks and on training areas, giving users significantly increased flexibility in when and where they are able to train. 

This contract follows Elbit Systems UK’s other major training programmes for the UK Armed Forces. These include the Joint Fires Synthetic Trainer and Joint Fires Mobile Trainer for the Army, Project Selborne for the Royal Navy, and the delivery and operation of three types of aircraft through its subsidiary Affinity, for the UK Military Flying Training System. 

Martin Fausset, CEO of Elbit Systems UK said:

Increased flexibility and fidelity are crucial to the effective training of the British Armed Forces. Elbit Systems UK’s deployable, high specification platform will enable the Army, both reserve and regular, to develop and maintain operational readiness for a range of environments and scenarios. We are already delivering advanced training capabilities to the British Army and Royal Navy and are proud of our continuous work to help keep our Armed Forces prepared for any situation.
