ECA : ECA Group announces three simulator contracts in Asia for more than EUR 6M
ECA Group has won three orders for naval simulators in Asia over the last weeks for a cumulated amount of over €6M.
The first order is for a sonar simulator that enables ships' crews to be trained in the operation of the different types of sonars present on board and, in obtaining the best possible knowledge of the underwater situation around the ship by using the best combination of sonar images.
The second sale is of a Submarine Damage Control Simulator. In 2014, the ECA Group had recorded a first success for this new range of Damage Control Simulators, for training in Damage Control Simulation for surface vessels. This time, the ECA Group has recorded a first order for this type of simulator for submarines. Thus, the group now has a complete offer of Damage Control Simulators, for both underwater and surface vessels.
The third order is for the upgrading of a driver training simulator (Surface Ship Simulator) for a customer who has already been equipped with our simulator for several years.
These three orders confirm ECA Group's capability to innovate and adapt to its navy customers' requirements by offering technically advanced and competitive solutions. Our Group offers a complete range of naval simulators including operator training simulators (sonar, radar, etc.), tactical training simulators for a force comprising several vessels and aircraft, and crew training simulators for submarines or surface vessels.
In the defense sector, ECA Group also offers armored vehicle driving simulators (see press release 16th January 2014). This simulator will be presented on our Group's stand at the Eurosatory exhibition, in Paris, France from June 13-16 2016: Booth Hall 5 / K760
