Documentation Services

Design Rendezvous sees technical writing as a joint effort between the product/system developer and the writers to deliver the relevant instructions and knowledge to the customer in an effective, concise manner while not compromising the integrity of information. To that end, our documentation services include designing the content structure or revamping of existing content and manuals for a better user experience, providing of concise technical illustrations, product photography and retouching photographs for publication.

An example of the process on a technical documentation project would be as follows:

1.   Meet the client to understand the users’ documentation requirements.

 

2.   Gather relevant sources of the information from the client.

 

3.   Schedule meeting(s) with the user(s) to capture the information required.

 

4.   Validate the information provided by the client.

 

5.   Commence the creation of the appropriate manuals.

 

6.   Conduct a reviews of the manuals to incorporate the user’s feedback and latest information.

 

7.   Present the final deliverables in the requested media formats.

Air Mission Trainer Simulator Enhancement

We are honoured to provide documentation services for the Air Mission Trainer Simulator System Enhancement Project.


Infantry Gunnery and Tactical Simulator

The Infantry Gunnery and Tactical Simulator provides a platform for land based simulation exercise training. It consists of a Commander training station and Weapon Simulators. The Commander training station is where trainee commanders learn battlefield planning, tactical operations and develop their tactical decision-making skills in different warfare scenarios. The Weapon Simulators allow trainees to hone their weaponry skills. With the Infantry Gunnery and Tactical Simulator System, users will save time and resources to test out their battle plan concepts and refine tactical operations before they are validated in outfield training.

We are pleased to provide documentation services for Phase 1 of the project. It comprises of six volumes of manuals classified into the following categories:
– Operating Manuals
– Technical Manuals
– System Administration Manual
– System Manual


Peacekeeper Protected Response Vehicle Simulator

The Peacekeeper Protected Response Vehicle Simulator trains peacekeeper crews in the operation of the Peacekeeper Protected Response vehicle. The vehicle is equipped with the Remote Control Weapon System that can be configured to meet the operational requirements. The Peacekeeper Protected Response Vehicle Simulator has two types of cabin, the PDS cabin and the PCTS cabin.

The PDS cabin simulator is mounted onto a motion platform. The motion platform provides six degrees of freedom of movement that is ideal for training the driver to manage the driving of the vehicle in different terrains.

The PCTS cabin simulator is static. The training focuses on the tactical operations for peace keeping missions.

We are awarded with the contract to provide documentation services for the project.
It comprises of four volumes of manuals:
– Operator Manuals
