Daronmont opens RAN training and simulation centre

Daronmont Technologies has announced the opening of a training and simulation centre for the Royal Australian Navy to support the Systems Engineering and Assessment Ltd (SEA) DECKsim immersive 3D training experience for flight deck military personnel.

Based in Adelaide, Daronmont said the establishment of the training centre will lead to the creation of long-term employment opportunities for the company, as well as providing defence training for the benefit of the ADF.


The DECKsim solution offers immersive training experience for flight deck military personnel, providing real-life scenarios by incorporating any desired combination of airfield or ship flight deck, aircraft, approach/departure waypoints and, importantly, emergency procedures in a controlled and safe environment.

“SEA has truly embraced the Australian government’s desire to grow Australian industry capability, and I am very pleased that our partnership will enable SEA’s world-leading communications and weapons system solutions to enter ADF service and be fully supported here,” Daronmont CEO Ben Norris said.

“I plan, over time, to utilise future SEA investments and technology development for the benefit of our war fighters and to grow regional markets together.”

“The opening of Daronmont’s specialist training centre is a clear demonstration of our partnership’s ongoing commitment to generate sustainable Australian industrial capability that is based on uniquely indigenous solutions, robust supply chains and whole of life-cycle support solutions,” Steve Hill, managing director of SEA, added.



“By sharing the very best of our innovative technology, expertise and knowledge, together our companies can enhance the locally sourced military solutions for SEA 1000 and 5000 and offer support for SEA’s leading training capability, as well as our anti-submarine warfare and weapon-agnostic torpedo launcher systems. We look forward to the next phase of our successful partnership with Daronmont and continuing to develop and support forward-thinking capabilities that meet the unique needs of the Australian defence sector.”
