Marking the final phase of application development , the U.S. Navy’s Office of Naval Research today exercised the contract option that will deliver CTI’s next-generation maintenance trainer to the Center for Surface Combat Systems schoolhouse in San Diego, California.  The immersive, interactive training aid is built around a virtual Gunner’s Mate who engages students with a distinctive personality, motivating users to do their best.  With delivery anticipated at the end of calendar 2018, the application, comprising 50 modules (roughly corresponding to game “levels”), is expected to reduce bottlenecks with the school’s limited hands-on training equipment.  The application is being optimized for the thin-client virtual machine infrastructure recently introduced at Navy training facilities.
