Other additional information: This requirement has been retracted - No Award THE REQUIREMENT IS RETRACTED - NO AWARD The Training & Simulation System Portfolio (TSSP) team, part of DE&S within the UK MoD, is considering the potential requirement for the provision of a Interim Combined Arms Virtual Trainer (Deployable). ICAVS(D) Will be used to provide teams and junior commanders with a simple, effective computer-based training environment that enables them to carry out tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) and command and control (C2), patrolling, counter-IED, ISTAR management and exploitation and mission planning training in a realistic virtual environment. An outline of the proposed requirement will be to demonstrate, implement and ultimately manage, over a period of 4 years plus 2 option years in 1 year increments, a managed service capable of delivering individual, platoon to company level (or service/arm equivalent) collective training across the UK and abroad. It will support a range of environments, equipment and missions types by being flexible in its scenario generation and content integration, exploiting MOD corporate simulation data where practicable. ICAVS(D) will contribute to the preparation of land environment (LE) force elements (FEs) force preparation through provision of exercise design which will provide specific unit exercise scenarios that are pre-scripted and reflect the collective training objectives (CTOs) for each service/arm. The ICAVS(D) capability will provide exercises at unit locations, or agreed alternatives, through the provision of training delivery of virtual simulated training utilising CTO and commanding officers direction of a minimum number of circa 70 events with the scope to extend to add additional training events (circa +70). The contract will also need the flexibility to enable additional experimentation events, over and above the aforementioned training events. After action review (AAR) will provide the facility to deliver a debrief to the training audiences, which will be presented by the unit chain of command with support from the service provider.
