Simulation, Human Factors and Human Systems Integration technologies have long been used for Training;
• The Military, and in safety critical fields like
• Super Tanker Shipping, and
• Nuclear Power
Until recently, this essential element of training technologies has not been available to the Rail industry, specifically HF and HSI. However, GLT is now bringing these technologies together for the Rail Industry to optimise Passenger Safety, Security and Satisfaction. We are also working with consortium of 31 British Universities engaged in Rail Research which includes Suicide Prevention and reducing the costs incurred by Assaults and Vandalism to railway infrastructure.
"MISSION STATEMENT: Reduce Accidents, Fatalities and "Delay Minute" costs in the Rail industry caused by inadequate Training and Human Error, by providing;
Best-of-Breed Simulators, CCTV with COLOUR Night Vision, Safety and Security Training technologies combined with Human Factors (HF) and Human Systems Integration (HSI)
Simulation, HF and HSI has long been an essential part of Astronaut, Aviation and Military Training. With the introduction of High Speed Rail, GLT is bringing together the seamless integration of these systems and innovations. Drivers can attain "Airline Pilot Standards" of Training and Certification to reduce accidents.
Combined, these technologies will also facilitate the rapid integration of emergency procedures, National Transportation Safety Board, Homeland Security and Transport Police recommendations, to optimize Passenger Safety and Public Security.
GLT is a privately owned company providing "Independent" expert advice on the worlds most advanced Training Technologies to exceed your business and performance needs. We invite you to review these technologies and are available 24X7 to discuss the benefits they will bring to your business"

Include a laser Video Eye-Tracking System, developed for training U.S. Air force fighter pilots. A major cause of vehicle accidents is a driver’s poor scanning pattern. By observing a driver/pilot, a trainer knows the general direction of their scanning pattern. However, they do not know with pin-point accuracy, the effectiveness of their scanning pattern. The Eye-Tracker, with a mini camcorder, projects and records a cross (+) on the video of the driver’s scanning pattern relative to the terrain, for playback and analysis. It is a powerful tool for trainers to evaluate drivers.
