Raytheon UK has assembled a team in a bid to become the next strategic training partner for the British Army’s Collective Training Transformation Program (CTTP).
The Omnia Training collaboration will be responsible for delivering the Future Collective Training System, a flexible solution that replicates the complexity of the modern battlefield and enables the army to train globally.
The system is expected to “transform collective training” and prepare warfighters for evolving warfare by providing realistic multi-domain environments.
The CTTP agreement amounts to 1.2 billion pounds ($1.4 billion) and will run for 15 years. The winning bid is expected to be selected by 2025.
“Omnia Training embraces modern training technologies and methodologies that enhance the common training experience and is focused on delivering better training outcomes for the soldier and commander,” Raytheon UK CEO Jeff Lewis said.
“At the heart of our collaborative approach will be the exploitation of data and connectivity across multiple training technologies.”
“This combination will enable us to deliver a truly flexible and cutting-edge training environment and will help prepare the British Army for a range of scenarios that have traditionally been difficult to create on a training ground.”
‘A Huge Shift’
The Omnia Training team will include Improbable Defence, Capita, Cervus, and Rheinmetall.
Each partner will leverage its expertise in collective synthetic training, program management, digital capabilities, enterprise transformation, and data processing to meet the requirements of the British Army’s CTTP.
“The Omnia Training team brings together a group of companies with significant depth of expertise and credibility as the Strategic Training Partner for the UK Army to deliver the CTTP programme successfully,” Managing Director at Rheinmetall Electronics UK Richard Streeter explained.
“This programme represents a huge shift and modernisation to the approach of training the UK Armed Forces.”
“With Rheinmetall’s global footprint and decades of managing complex synthetics design, integration and training capability delivery, we are delighted to be contributing to this fantastic Transformational Programme and addressing the challenges in the CTTP for the future UK Army.”
