Ministry of Defence : Exercise Steel Sabre

In a three week programme, on behalf of the UK Ministry of Defence, a 9-metre Igloo 360° projection dome delivered immersive training to 2,000 British and Danish troops.

The Igloo 360° was deemed far more effective than VR headsets or any traditional classroom training techniques.

In 2020, we caught up with the team at Cubic Defence UK to dive into how Igloo technology has been used and put together an in-depth case study.

"You can get a whole team in here, which means the dynamic you expect to take place on a battlefield actually happens."
