MajicSIMULATION training specialist NSC is to help hone the skills of senior commanders in Kuwait’s Armed Forces for a further three years.

Building on a 17-year working relationship, the UK-based wargaming expert will continue to assist the Gulf state in developing its military leaders of the future through the provision of computer-assisted decision-making exercises at the Mubarak Al Abdullah Joint Command and Staff College.

NSC, which has supported training programmes at the highly-respected facility since it was set-up by the British Military Mission in Kuwait in 1996, will utilise its innovative technologies to train officers from the region’s Armed Forces and other agencies for a wide range of operationally-relevant scenarios.

In addition to allowing Kuwait’s military to simulate the defence of its borders and critical national infrastructure, the arrangement will see NSC’s experienced team working closely with directing staff at the College to devise bespoke exercises that reflect the ever-changing nature of peacekeeping and peace enforcement.

Responsible for the development and introduction of computer-based services to the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, the company is well-versed in preparing commanders for the rigours of operations.

NSC’s Joint Operations Command and Staff Training System (JOCASTS) – the training and analysis solution deployed at the Mubarak Al Abdullah Joint Command and Staff College – is also routinely used by British Armed Forces to expose commanders and headquarters staff to the challenges of modern deployments.

Delivering a mix of virtual incidents and live feeds, JOCASTS can be customised to feature specific threats and actions and provides realistic strategic training for staff officers in the conduct of joint and combined operations within complex environments.

Jeremy Spurr, Managing Director of NSC, said: “We are very proud of our long-standing association with the Kuwait Armed Forces and have first-hand experience of their determination to develop highly-capable and professional military leaders of the future.

“Through our continued support of the excellent directing staff at the Mubarak Al Abdullah Joint Command and Staff College, NSC is focused on providing world-class training that will preserve this operational advantage and ultimately enhance the national security of the State of Kuwait.”
