Today Cape Henry Associates (CHA) celebrated the official delivery and acceptance of the revolutionary Carrier-Advanced Reconfigurable Training System (C-ARTS). PEO Carriers hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Washington Navy Yard, complete with open house tours of the new mobile training system. CHA was the prime contractor and lead system integrator in the development and production of the C-ARTS mobile units.
C-ARTS is the realization of an effort to improve the types and kinds of training readily available to naval personnel in response to the Navy’s Sailor 2025 training concept. The “Ready Relevant Learning” C-ARTS provides in the form of a High Velocity Learning Environment is both reconfigurable and state-of-art, incorporating a wide variety of academic and hands-on learning with advanced virtual and augmented reality technology.
Today’s event featured one of two C-ARTS trailers delivered this quarter. For the duration of 2018, the mobile units will reside in Newport News, Va. In 2019, the two trailers, along with two more, will move to their new home at Naval Station Norfolk. C-ARTS currently supports CVN 78 crews, with a long-term goal of providing training support across the Department of the Navy.
