CAE supports RAAF virtual training exercise
CAE provided support to the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) during the Diamond Thunder distributed mission training exercise, the company announced on 13 June.
The exercise saw the RAAF network various simulation assets across the country as part of its inaugural Air Warfare Instructor Course.
The exercise involved the networking of F/A-18 simulators at RAAF bases Williamtown and Tindal with the E-7A Wedgetail simulator at Williamtown and the C-130J simulator at RAAF base Richmond. The Air Warfare Centre's Joint Air Warfare Battle Laboratory at Williamtown managed and co-ordinated the entire virtual training environment by serving as the exercise command centre.
Each of the simulation devices was networked and flown simultaneously in the same virtual environment. As a joint and integrated force, the F/A-18 fighters, E-7A Wedgetail airborne early warning and control platform and C-130J tactical transports had to address threats such as air defence systems, ground radars and surface-to-air missiles.
CAE supported the integration and testing of the C-130J full-flight mission simulator onto the Australian Defence Training and Experimentation Network. The company also assisted with creating and executing the virtual training and mission rehearsal scenarios, as well as assisting with the provision of the networking infrastructure to support the distributed virtual training exercise.
