MANTA Serious Games

SERIOUS GAMES is a virtual environment in which the participants can be trained in specific procedures; it recreates situations which use dynamic, interactive, multi-user and multimedia tools to facilitate learning during the training. It can be used in combination with the traditional training to increase the skill levels through an innovative and immersive team training approach. Using this virtual environment, participants can learn by doing.

The SERIOUS GAMES simulator is part of MANTA (Multipurpose Advanced Networked Training Architecture) suite.
MANTA solutions integrate different training methods and tools. It supports the latest VR HMI, articulated viewing systems, moving platforms and integration of real devices.

In order to follow the training path of each participant, the Training Manager (TM) module has been developed giving them the possibility to upgrade their skills through different courses.
MANTA is in continuous evolution to develop advanced naval training solutions, fully satisfying customer requirements and needs.
