  • The Navy had been employing hardware-based Technical Training Equipment (TTE) solutions to provide training to Sailors.  Although these traditional TTE solutions proved successful in supporting learning objectives, they were limited in terms of availability, reliability, and maintainability due to the high cost to procure, build, install, update, and maintain. To address the limitations and continued challenges of hardware-based TTE, the Navy decided to migrate its training archetype towards a cloud-based, virtual training environment. Deloitte was selected to help the Navy address these limitations and achieve these goals.

     Today’s CANES TVE environment provides each Sailor an individual instantiation of any specific CANES configuration in which he or she may get “reps and sets” (i.e., hands-on practical application) for maintaining and troubleshooting. The virtual environment further enabled rapid enhancements to emulate a more accurate shipboard representation of CANES, which significantly enhanced the training quality in terms of realism and effectiveness. Accessible from anywhere around the world, the virtual CANES environment has not only provided the Navy with a reliable, maintainable, scalable (nearly limitless), and more cost effective training capability, but also tripled the availability and accessibility to CANES training.


  • OptoAI: Enhance Fielded Unmanned ISR Platforms
    OptoAI enhances fielded unmanned systems (UxVs) with best-in-class artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, enabling mission commanders to confidently exploit mission-specific information from the field at the speed of relevance....

  • OptoAI overcomes critical Navy ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) challenges by rapidly updating technology to keep pace with evolving conflict, multiplying scarce AI and system operator talent, and ensuring freedom of action in contested / congested environments. Specifically, it overcomes the training data bottleneck with digital twinning, augments intensive manual piloting with adaptive AI autopilot, shortens the information cycle from 48 hours to real-time with resilient onboard computing at the tactical edge, improves identification and location accuracy with mission-specific AI fusion, and provides immersive situational awareness (SA) through a 3D AR/VR interface. OptoAI is readily integrated with the Navy Unmanned Campaign Framework, and extensible to practically any platform, sensor, or mission. At WEST 2023, visitors will have the opportunity to operate the system live, in an augmented reality (AR) headset. In addition, our multi-modal maritime AI capabilities applied to Port State Control (PSC) and Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing will be on display.
  • CentralSight

  • Using CentralSight™, Deloitte helps clients visualize their complex supply chains and prevent supply chain disruptions before they occur—saving money, protecting brand, and radically increasing supply chain integrity and security. This helps solve what is fundamentally the most challenging problem in supply chain risk management: the ability to visualize a 12-tiers-deep, thousands-of-companies-large, geographically disaggregated, and functionally specialized supplier ecosystem in a time-sensitive, cost-effective manner. It is then, and only then, when we can identify risks critical to cost, schedule, performance, security, and resiliency and create decision space to provide our executives time to address those risks before they manifest as problems within business operations or national security.
  • Unlimited Reality
    Deloitte’s Unlimited Reality offering helps clients harness next generation strategies, tools, and technologies to create and connect virtual worlds for industrial, workplace, enterprise, and consumer contexts....

  • Deloitte can help clients take advantage and explore virtual worlds inside the studio, in the real world, and in the context of their organizations, providing a range of benefits that include:

    • Working alongside the designers and architects of virtual worlds, learning the new generation of creative tools, and simulation technologies that enable Unlimited Realities.

    • Creating hyper-realistic, physically-accurate digital twins that simulate natural environments, physical structures, industrial operations, transportation networks, including the humans and robots and AI agents working inside them, to accelerate design and planning cycles for all business paradigms.

    • Building shared virtual experiences that convene audiences for collaborative work, recreation, or education through AR/VR or mixed reality.

    • Exploring virtual world economies where transactions in digital currencies and assets will power an explosion of virtual services, experiences, and goods.

    • Enabling virtual world strategies that maximize positive impact on the planet, advancing client’s environment, social and corporate governance initiatives.

  • Navy EDGE Virtualized Mobile Training Network
    The Virtualized Training Network is hosted in AWS GovCloud providing an on-demand, deployable learning environment. The entire network is installed on a single 4U Edge device that contains the same VMware-based deployment as a Navy shipboard network....

  • The Virtualized Training Network is installed on a single 4U Edge device which contains the same VMware-based deployment as a Navy shipboard network with no dependencies on Internet connectivity or shore integration to operate. A unique network deployment capability that can enable underway mobile training operations, rapid fielding, digital twin, and synchronization with the cloud. This modern networking unit can function as a dedicated LAN for supplemental or “refresher” training for both systems and applications similar to what the sailors received in the Navy classroom. Alternatively, the Edge unit can also be connected to the ship’s LAN for data replication, fail-over, and digital twin utilization. All configurations can be maintained in a software-defined remote operations capability via downloads from the cloud environment during connected operations; enabling configuration consistency, synchronization, and rapid fielding to units staged anywhere in the world.

  • Maritime Defensive Cyber Operations
    The Deloitte Maritime Defensive Cyber Operations (MDCO) Capability is an integrated Attack, Sensing, & Warning (AS&W) solution for shipboard Operational Technology (OT) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS)....

  • Deloitte recognizes the need to protect maritime systems against cyber threats. Traditional, standalone cyber solutions are limited in scope and ill-suited for the unique demands of maritime system operations. The Deloitte Maritime Defensive Cyber Operations (MDCO) Capability is an integrated Attack, Sensing, & Warning (AS&W) solution for shipboard Operational Technology (OT) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS). Our solution integrates cutting-edge cybersecurity capabilities into a modular platform that promotes interchangeable components, so the solution can be tailored to address the physical and operational challenges of the critical shipboard systems. The core of our solution architecture consists of an OT Cybersecurity Platform, a Security Event & Incident Management (SEIM) custom dashboard, maritime industry protocol analyzers, and Deloitte’s advanced Solution Integration techniques. By collecting the data from various shipboard systems and analyzing the findings with Machine Learning (ML) models specific to the unique systems, intuitive alerts are curated on a custom “single pane of glass” dashboard interface based on Deloitte’s advanced behavioral detection methodology. This enables the shipboard operators to muster targeted system aid and coordinate a quick response and maintenance effort. Alerting on cyber-physical anomalies in near real-time can reduce risk, enable faster system recovery, and limit the potential loss and impact to maritime operational systems.
