Australian Navy looks to war games for training

As part of the pilot project, Invenio Engineering Solutions provided support to the Ryal Australian Navy (RAN) through the application of its Real-time engineering fleet training interactive naval environment (Refine) solution.
The product was based on Dassault Systèmes' 3DVIA and CATIA software and was developed by Invenio using 3DVIA Studio Pro and 3DVIA Composer.
These been used to translate 3D ship design data developed in CATIA into a virtual training tool that operates like a video game.
Invenio managing director Ivan Meisel said 3DVIA Studio Pro’s game engine with a can import the Computer Aided Design (CAD) data that has been used to design and build the ships.
"Other game engines require users to remodel the CAD data into optimised polygons before importing the information," Mr Meisel said.
"With 3DVIA Studio Pro, the re-modelling of CAD data into optimised polygons was completed automatically in the export process.”
Invenio's Refine solution addresses naval training requirements by immersing naval cadets in a virtual representation of the ship on which they will serve.
Real-life scenarios that can be replicated include; operating navigating equipment; fighting a fire; launching the ship's boat; responding to damage control or a call to action stations.
