QinetiQ North America Develops Next-Gen Training Applications for its Integrated Warrior System

Two new training products, a mobile learning application and a desktop training program

Reston, VA - December 2, 2013 - QinetiQ North America (QNA) today announced the availability of two new training products, a mobile learning application and a desktop training program for its Integrated Warrior System™ (IWS). IWS integrates a wide variety of warfighter electronics to enhance situational awareness and extend mission endurance. These new training applications provide cost-effective, consistent, onsite training with the delivery of IWS kits.


IWS is a man-portable power and data management system that enables warfighters to manage multiple mission systems through a single end-user device, such as a smart phone. QNA's mobile learning application is pre-loaded onto the end-user device to integrate training with the IWS platform. Both the IWS desktop training program and mobile application contain interactive lessons that provide an overview of the system, an inventory and description of components, configuration instructions and troubleshooting procedures.

"The next generation warfighter has grown up in a digital world and expects this technology to be incorporated into the learning environment," said Dave Shrum, executive vice president and general manager, Defense Solutions, QinetiQ North America. "We are excited to be at the forefront of military training by leveraging new technologies to meet our customers' needs."

A critical component for the successful deployment of new products is clear and effective training that is readily accessible to the end-user. QNA provides end-to-end military training solutions through services that include training analysis, curriculum development and instructor-led training, in addition to the development of customized desktop and mobile training products.

IWS and the company's portfolio of training solutions will be on display at Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) 2013. Visit booth #1271 to see more.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
