As part of a major expansion and modernisation programme to provide a nationally recognised training facility, delivering the current training outputs plus an increased range of new capability technical courses, a high valued Middle East customer required a robust training solution for Battlespace Spectrum Management (BSM). This would enable them to achieve the management of spectrum resources for an ever-growing telecommunications capability Kingdom-wide.
Mercury conducted an auditable, and Defence Systems Approach to Training (DSAT) compliant, Training Needs Analysis (TNA) to meet the customer’s new BSM role requirements through in-country visits, liaison and Project Steering Group activities. Utilising the deliverables and recommendations from the TNA, the customer requested that Mercury conduct Design, Development and Training Delivery activities for 2 BSM course types; BSM Overview and BSM Fundamentals; inclusive of all supporting DSAT documentation. A blended learning approach was adopted in-line with the TNA ‘Methods and Media analysis’ to include student centric e-learning media, instructor-led media and discussion group activities. Mercury provided close liaison and subject matter expert support to a contracted e-learning media company to assure content accuracy and relevance throughout.
Production of fully auditable, DSAT compliant training solutions were delivered and accepted for BSM and training delivery activities have already been successfully conducted within the customer’s training facilities.
