What Are We Displaying?

Various Blended Learning Solutions (2 Examples Below).

Mortar Training BLS

The purpose of our Mortar Training Blended Learning Solution (BLS) is to allow students in training to use mortars to practice and develop the skills and techniques associated with map reading, calculating bearings and judging distance based on terrain features.

  • Scanning the Landscape

The BLS automatically generates targets randomly at a variety of distances within a set training area. Students are required to manually scan the landscape to identify potential targets.

  • Bearing Calculation

Students are able to use a service prismatic compass to acquire the target’s direction.

  • Map Reading

After calculating the bearing, students are able to accurately identify target locations on the map.

  • Making Corrections

Based on a Missed Shot Students have the ability to make adjustments and re-engage the target an unlimited number of times.

Working closely with a number of SMEs, CDS Defence Support developed a BLS that delivers the required features whilst adding additional benefits at every stage.

Award Winning Ebola Modular Training – Operation GRITROCK

CDS, in conjunction with the British Army, were awarded the Gold Award at the 2015 E-Learning Awards in the Best Public Sector Project category for our work to support the UK Military Ebola Medics Team prior to and during their deployment to Sierra Leone during the 2015 Ebola Crisis. With a creative approach and excellent use of technology, the project successfully met the brief of training volunteers and full time personnel.
