SRI International today announced the formation of a new wholly owned subsidiary, Ravenswood Solutions, which will provide military, homeland defense and other government and commercial organizations with market-leading technology and services for collective training, test and evaluation, performance assessment and policy analysis exercises.
Formed from SRI’s Instrumentation and Simulation (I&S) Program, Ravenswood Solutions capitalizes on a twenty-year history of providing mobile, scalable, live instrumented training and exercise support to a wide range of customers, including the Army National Guard, US Army, Army Reserves, and other government agencies.
Since 2008, the Ravenswood team has trained over 78,000 personnel at 32 different locations. In early September of this year, it completed the training of more than 17,000 soldiers from 10 brigades of the Army National Guard in six locations around the country, providing realistic battle effects and comprehensive, after-action training debrief opportunities.
“Operating as a subsidiary is a win for our customers as we can deliver more competitively the same quality of service our government and commercial customers have come to expect while still benefiting from SRI’s world-class research & development capabilities and expertise,” said Dan Donoghue, President and CEO, Ravenswood Solutions.
A core component of Ravenswood Solutions’ offering is FlexTrain, a tailored, turnkey training capability that can be delivered to any training arena, anywhere in the world, as “Training as a Service”. The system tracks vehicles and participants to the soldier level, allowing unit leaders to replay the day’s training scenarios and discuss lessons learned in instrumented after-action reviews with 2D, 3D, tactical audio, and embedded handheld video within minutes of mission completion.
FlexTrain is at the center of the National Guard’s eXportable Combat Training Capability (XCTC) program and other client support.
Ravenswood Solutions’ capabilities will be demonstrated at booth #1933 at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) 2015, which takes place November 30th – December 4th, 2015 in Orlando, Florida.
