SimCentric Technologies (Pvt) Ltd.0114 368 968 www.simct.com
SimCentric Technologies is an advanced software development company with a particular focus on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies. Offering advanced, “best in class”, high fidelity and modular COTS applications and middleware, SimCentric has a decade of experience working with military, industry, government and academia across the globe to achieve tangible results. SimCentric products are currently utilised worldwide by more than 80 Industry and Defence organisations.
Specializing in Military Simulation and Training use cases, SimCentric Technologies has as it’s core motto “Deliver a Solution, not a Product”. We believe passionately that unless our user community are employing our technologies on a continuous basis, seamlessly integrated into their training continuum, and delivering genuine capability enhancements, risk reduction and cost savings, then we have not achieved our mission.

Core Competencies / Specializations
Our desire to build quality middleware goes well beyond a commercial incentive. At SimCentric we believe in constantly challenging the status quo and in driving positive change through our work. Collaboration with our user community to understand their problems, challenges and needs, then working constructively over the long term to be a high quality and reliable part of the solution is at the core of our philosophy.
SimCentric’s senior leadership includes two PhD’s in Artificial Intelligence from Oxford University, and the former Head of Training Development within Australian Special Operations Command. Complementing this, our software engineers hold both Bachelor and Masters levels qualifications, with many cross-trained across multiple coding languages in order to best achieve customer requirements.
At SimCentric we focus on quality over quantity. Our motivation is to deliver “best in class” applications and middleware for use across various synthetic environments in training, research, planning and operations. Through this model of ubiquitous software modules, the flexible transferability of our products mitigates against “creative destructionism”. As the user evolves or changes their synthetic environment, SimCentric’s advanced applications and middleware also transition, ensuring long term reliable availability.
It is not good enough to deliver “the shiny black box” that is generic, mass produced and misaligned with how the user community trains and generates capability. At SimCentric we pride ourselves on achieving a deep understanding of how our user community trains and where simulation can tangibly value add to this capability outcome. Our focus is squarely on comprehensively understanding the customer requirements, from which we then generate a customised and fully integrated solution.

Recognitions / Achievements
New Zealand Defence Force acquire enterprise licence of VBS3 FiresFST
SimCentric are proud to announce the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) concluded their acquisition of a perpetual enterprise licence of VBS3 FiresFST in July 2017. This procurement marks the culmination of a strong collaborative effort over several years between SimCentric, the NZDF Mission Command Training School (MCTS) and the New Zealand School of Artillery to fully integrate VBS3 FiresFST into the Joint Fires Observer (JFO) training continuum. To date, NZDF has utilised VBS3 FiresFST software as the primary simulation training tool for the past two JFO courses, with further refinement and evolution already scoped to continue to build upon existing successes. From foundation use in the School of Artillery, VBS3 FiresFST is already being scoped for expanded use across 16th Artillery Brigade, deployable systems for use in operational theatres, and within the existing Meggitt Weapon Training Simulation System (WTSS) for NZDF.
SimCentric builds solid partnerships to develop VBS3Fires FST into the future
SimCentric is committed to having excellent working partnerships across industry and the military communities. None are more important than those who deliver and instruct with our technology. Our dedication to our software development has become significant to the end user through the depth of expertise and knowledge gained by working closely with and listening diligently to those committed to delivering the highest quality of training and those operators who ultimately deliver the live capability.
Nautilus International Risk Consultants (Nautilus), based in Poole, Dorset, are an established UK Defence company that provides services and products in simulation and C2 to UK MoD, Civil and Government Organisations. Nautilus determine and deliver the best of breed products into their training and consultancy. Simulation services include Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) supporting UAV operators in cognitive skills training in Complex Scenarios with Human Environments, Shooting, JTAC Training, Kinetic Strike Training, Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs), Mission Planning and Mission Rehearsal (MPMR) and Medical Training. Their agility, and that of their partners, is critical to them delivering a new, unrivalled JTAC capability in the UK.
SimCentric's VBS3FIRESFST NATO Accredited in UK Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) simulator
SimCentric are excited to announce that the Nautilus International JTAC simulator system using VBS3FIRESFST has been NATO accredited which then supported the UK JTAC Concentration at RAF Honington. Working with Nautilus to deliver a deployable and highly portable system including COBRA screen and VBS3 software, VBS3FIRESFST has been NATO accredited to Type 2 & 3 controls, Day, Night, FMV and Laser. Using Form, Fit and Function emulated JTAC equipment, such as the LF28 LTD, PLRF25, IZLID Ultra and Harris Communications 7800HH radios with 7800T downlink receivers, the system can be fully set up and ready for use within 2 hours. All of the JTAC simulation scenarios and terrain are based on real world locations, both in the UK and overseas. This allows the qualified JTAC to train in a realistic and demanding, simulated environment.
Finalist in the MS&T 2018
The MS&T Industry Simulation & Training Awards is an annual awards program that recognizes companies within the international defense simulation & training industry for consistently providing technologies, services and solutions that best prepare military forces to achieve their mission. These companies’ products help service members of all types – air, land and sea – to prepare for deployment, as well as train and rehearse for missions in theater.
