Industry leaders in anti-terrorism simulation training facilities: SPIIND


The team at SPIIND have practical experience in various defence industries, including military fixed wing and rotary aircraft design and manufacture, along with other military and commercial transport options. Through applying this experience, along with our many years of working with defence industries, SPIIND is well-placed to design and build tactical and operational mock-ups. These mock-up facilities and environments are critical for the simulation of high-risk operations such as rescue, evacuation operations, aviation, maritime and other counter terrorism operations.


Tactical mock-up training: Aircraft, Trains, Ships, Landing Craft, Armoured Vehicles, Tanks

SPIIND has experience in the design, fabrication and installation of national and international simulation facilities and training mock ups, including full-size simulation helicopters, aircraft, trains, ships, tanks and armoured vehicles.


Most tactical mock-up training takes place in confined spaces found within aircraft, trains, buses and ships, all of which provide highly hazardous environments and high risk of injury for trainees and operatives alike. Recognising these environments and working through all operations in a detail-collaborative manner with our clients enables us to develop very detailed mock-ups, along with the use of the very latest technologies such as the 3D scanning of products.


With such detailed representations of actual products, clients can be assured of training in a real-world environment. When coupled with SPIIND systems for hazard identification, and with controls in place to achieve an ALARP standard, we ensure optimal safety without compromising on the realism of the training.



“I would like to acknowledge the company’s professionalism and diligence by providing timely, accurate and detailed project reports, and variation registers and other project documentation that has set a benchmark I now expect to be achieved on other NZDF projects.”

Paul Conyers, New Zealand Defence Force
