SPIIND: Ground breaking operational and tactical mockups and simulators

Award-winning design.

We develop our clients’ staff and their tactical and/or operational skills and performance, through the application of bespoke training mockups and facilities, which combine physical hardware and both Augmented and Mixed Reality capability, ensuring a safe but real world training environment.  

Our mockups enable client training to be provided ‘off platform’ in a consistent up to date manner throughout the product life cycle, delivering proven cost savings over more traditional training methods of up to 30%.

Our mockups also provide the opportunity to plan and trial future platform changes and manage their effect on people and operations.

SPIIND works with defence forces and commercial operators around the world and is highly experienced working within the specialised field of work, including both simunition and 'live fire' environments.


SPIIND's mockups cover a wide range of products including but not limited to:


Damage Control

RHIB Launch (Davit or Ramp)

Anchor Evolutions

Refueling at Sea (RAS)

Aircraft (Fixed Wing and Rotary)
