Telvent supplies tactical and navigation simulators to the Escuela Naval Militar of Marín

January 30, 2006

Madrid, 30th January 2006- Telvent GIT S.A. (Nasdaq: TLVT), the global real-time IT company, has officially presented the Escuela Naval Militar of Marín, in Galicia, with two simulators: one tactical and one ship handling, for a total sum of over two million euros.

The Tactical Simulator is a system which enables training of Tactical Officers by using a simulation process of air-naval operations. This system enables preparation, performance and analysis of exercises which simulate a tactical environment where operations are conducted within a highly realistic scenario paying close attention to environmental influence. This simulator consists of two instructor posts, which control the simulator’s tactical operation, as well as five student cabins, which include the different units which participate in the operation and one analysis room where the progress and result of the exercise is assessed.

Telvent has also supplied the Escuela Naval Militar of Marín with a Ship Handling Simulator. This is a powerful tool for training of future bridge officers in navigation, as well as for the use of operational equipment and techniques which help to respond to complex situations which seldom occur in real life. Telvent’s technology will aid in the training of bridge officers in the use of real bridge equipment and navigation techniques, in addition, to be able to respond to hostile atmospheric conditions, when mooring or unmooring the vessel with or without help from tugboats, on virtual three-dimensional scenarios.

According to Telvent's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Manuel Sánchez Ortega, “Our firm has over 30 years’ experience in the area of simulation and tactical systems and has participated in practically the entire number of Naval Programmes of the Spanish Navy. The simulators we are presenting today to the Escuela Naval Militar of Marín are our company’s new generation simulators and use distributed simulation techniques which attain a high level of reliability and efficiency of performance”.

The simulators we supply are interconnected to allow performance of combined exercises, and therefore coordinated training of both elements involved: tactical and navigation and manoeuvring.

Telvent (Nasdaq: TLVT), the Global RealTime IT Company, specializes in high value add solutions and services in four industry sectors (Energy, Traffic, Transport and Environment). Its technology allows high performing companies to make real-time business decisions using data acquisition, control, and advanced operational applications, providing secure actionable information delivery to the enterprise.
