An industry and academic alliance is gearing up to make the world’s most renowned naval training, even better. 

The iMAST Alliance, a collaboration of three leading UK Maritime defence companies Babcock, QinetiQ and Thales together with technology partners Centerprise International, Learning Technologies Group and academic Institutions, University of Portsmouth and University of Strathclyde, has recently signed an Alliance Agreement, bringing together their deep and collective strength of capabilities to deliver a training transformation solution that they believe will modernise and transform Royal Navy training. 

The Alliance is further boosted by an Ecosystem of more than 50 niche enterprises, who will seek and explore innovation in learning technologies, delivering opportunities and benefits across the UK supply chain. 

The contract will be awarded following a competitive tendering process run by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and will see the successful bidder partner with their customer to transform Royal Navy training. Down selected to bid in 2019, the iMAST team is finalising its approach with final tender submissions due in summer 2020. 

The iMAST vision is simple – working in true partnership with the customer to transform and modernise Royal Navy training in innovative ways that will deliver more, better trained Royal Navy people to the front line quicker.
