The Submarine Multi-Mission Trainer Simulator for Virginia Class Submarines

was installed in a new Building Annex to Bldg. 1262. 
SMMTT incorporates the latest simulation technology to enable submarine crews to rehearse tactical missions in environmental and tactical conditions that realistically simulate those found anywhere in the world.  It provides shore-based training for submarine combat control and sonar systems. 

Planning for the installation of SMMTT was done over the years as facilities in other Navy bases provided the groundwork for design.  The Motion Trainer Structure was built offsite and assembled in place.  Electrical and Mechanical components were installed once the simulator was installed.  Due to the nature of this work, strict security protocols were required to assure the Navy that no breaches could occur.  Escorts accompanied workmen and monitored the work site daily.
