In collaboration with Swiss-based laser engagement systems provider RUAG, global logistics provider Agility, and UK-based engineering and technical services corporation QinetiQ, Ravenswood will provide British troops training in Kenya and other locations with instrumentation, weapon simulators, battlefield effects, and instrumented after-action reviews (I-AARs). RUAG's laser-based, live-simulation system (known as Gladiator) will interface with Ravenswood's instrumentation system (known as the Mobile Ground Truth System) to generate high-fidelity exercise data, track troops and vehicles over a large, remote training area, and produce I-AARs to improve training.

TESIK is Ravenswood's first major contract with the UK MOD for turnkey exercise support and instrumentation services.

"Team Ravenswood is thrilled to begin building a strong, trust-based partnership with our new client, the UK Ministry of Defense," said Ravenswood CEO Dan Donoghue. "We tailored our best-in-industry capabilities to meet the British Army's training needs, and we are honored that they have put their trust and confidence in us. We look forward to helping the MOD achieve their desired training outcomes, as well as bridging our current capabilities to their future needs."
