The Selborne programme calls for the transformation and modernisation of the shore-based training of the Royal Navy including the establishment of a Future Submarine School. As the Synthetic Integrator for the Fisher consortium, Elbit Systems UK will develop and deliver a new Combat Systems Operator Trainer in the Future Submarine School and modernise and manage legacy synthetic training systems across the Royal Navy.

Elbit Systems UK will provide new technologies that support the synthetic vision of Defence Operational Training Capability (Maritime) (DOTC(M)), while ensuring availability and efficiency of the Royal Navy’s existing legacy capabilities.

The contract will be performed over a 12-year period.

Elbit Systems UK is now providing world-leading training capabilities to the British Army, Royal Air Force, and Royal Navy, specialising and adapting these capabilities at its facilities across the UK.

This latest contract will enable the company to further develop its UK production capabilities, creating local jobs, stimulating British innovation and fostering UK skills in the long term.

Martin Fausset, CEO of Elbit Systems UK, said: “Project Selborne will be a pathfinder for the Royal Navy’s transformation agenda, with the introduction of enhanced training capabilities at the forefront of personnel achieving their potential and arriving at the front line quicker. We are delighted to be a part of the team delivering next-generation training capabilities to the Royal Navy, following on the success of Elbit Systems UK’s provision of advanced training capabilities to the British Army and the Royal Air Force.”
