Royal Canadian Navy case study

Replenishment at sea

Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) missions can take place anywhere on earth. Those missions require replenishment of fuel, food, parts and ammunition. Calian trains sailors on land for missions at sea using immersive technology.

Naval training innovation: RCN's mixed reality move

Calian worked with the RCN to deliver a mixed reality (MR) training solution for replenishment at sea (RaS) using Microsoft HoloLens 2. This solution allows sailors to learn the RaS process and activities on land in a low-risk setting.

Delivering simulation-based solutions for complex naval operations

The RCN identified a need for advanced training methods for RaS procedures. The goal was to transition from traditional methods to simulation-based training, enabling sailors to safely and effectively practice these complex operations on land. This approach was intended to boost confidence and competence in performing these critical tasks at sea.

Reduce cost and risk of injury with immersive training solutions

Conducting RaS missions while underway is costly and complex, with risk of injury to sailors. Using MR solutions allows military customer to train for complex, process-driven tasks ashore without the cost of going to sea and with minimal risk of injury.

Improve engagement and knowledge retention with immersive solutions

Calian’s MR solutions provide an immersive, engaging, 360-degree training experience. Keeping sailors engaged with training in an immersive environment improves learner engagement and knowledge retention, boosting the effectiveness of training.
