Sweden selects CAE naval warfare training system

3rd June 2014 - 13:47 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


CAE will provide a comprehensive Naval Warfare Training System (NWTS) for the Swedish Navy under a new contract from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration announced on 3 June.

The NWTS will be a comprehensive, simulation-based system that includes simulation software, hardware, war gaming consoles, and instructor operator stations that will be used to train and educate Swedish Navy sailors and officers in naval tactics, procedures and doctrine.

The system will be used to train sea-operative units and their personnel in a range of disciplines, including sensor operations; command, control, communications and computers, and weapon systems. The comprehensive training solution will allow the Swedish Navy to train and rehearse for operations in anti-air warfare, anti-surface warfare, anti-submarine warfare, mine warfare, and search and rescue.

Gene Colabatistto, group president, defence and security, CAE, said: ‘We are honoured the Swedish Navy has selected CAE to provide a comprehensive NWTS. CAE is a skilled and experienced training systems integrator. Our strategy is to leverage our training systems integration capabilities across the air, land, sea and public safety market segments, and this contract is evidence our strategy is working as defence and security customers seek our expertise to implement simulation-based training programmes.’

The NWTS will be provided as three classroom training systems. Each classroom will include student workstations and instructor positions for creating, managing and monitoring training exercises. The student workstations will include a range of core CAE simulation technologies, such as simulation systems for sonar, radar and computer-generated forces. The synthetic maritime environment will be built to the CAE-developed Common Database standard - an open database architecture that is rapidly updateable, interoperable and enables correlated distributed mission training.

The NWTS is scheduled for delivery in late 2015 to the Swedish Naval Warfare Centre in Karlskrona, Blekinge, Sweden. Following delivery CAE will provide on-site instructor and technician training as well as helpdesk support services and technical assistance for three years with options to extend for the following years.
