Ribs for Naval Training Exercises
Solent Rib Charter work with a number of NATO navies providing Ribs for naval exercises. Most training exercises involve multiple Ribs ‘attacking’ warships both as bespoke training events for individual ships as well as participation in annual Joint Warrior NATO exercises.
These training exercises have been developed around changing threat profiles, and according to the feedback, are proving invaluable to naval warfare officers preparing for deployment to higher risk areas.
SRC also works with the defence industry and has built significant expertise in specialist trials for both military and civilian developers of radar systems. The company has been involved for some years with testing land based radar systems as well as military helicopters and surface ships. Customers include BAE Systems and Lockheed Martin.
