CAE to upgrade Sweden's NWTS
CAE has been awarded a contract from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration to upgrade and expand the capabilities of the Naval Warfare Training System (NWTS) located at the Swedish Naval Warfare Centre in Karlskrona, Sweden. The contract was announced on 5 September.
Originally developed by CAE for the Swedish Navy and put into service in 2016, the NWTS is used by the Swedish Navy for training in a range of disciplines, including sensor operations and command, control, communications and computers.
Under this contract CAE will upgrade the system, with enhancements to support active sonar training, additional electronic warfare training capabilities and improved training scenarios. The company will also add a range of computer-generated forces entities to simulate both friendly and enemy forces in order to deliver a more realistic virtual training environment.
The trainee stations included as part of the NWTS include a range of core CAE simulation technologies, such as simulation systems for sonar, radar and communications. The synthetic maritime environment has been built to the Open Geospatial Consortium Common Database standard, which is an open and international standard for the creation of synthetic environment databases.
