Cirrus wins TACEW and ITA contracts
Cirrus Real Time Processing Systems has received a contract from the Australian Department of Defence (DoD) for the supply of a Tactical Electronic Warfare (TACEW) simulation training system, the DoD announced on 18 April.
The order is part of the Royal Australian Navy's plans to deploy a common electronic warfare sensor suite across the future fleet and match the training to meet upcoming demand.
The TACEW contract is valued at around $4.4 million and will see the development of a TACEW training system to provide tuition, assessment and qualification of electronic warfare personnel across the full range of navy ships from a single facility ashore. The enhanced training systems will be capable of generating scenarios that simulate physical and electronic attacks where control of the electromagnetic spectrum can neutralise those threats.
Personnel will train and qualify on these systems with a greater understanding of electronic warfare and a broader range of skills before they are posted to a ship and work at sea, with the simulators able to load relevant software to replicate different ship types and the layouts of electronic warfare systems at sea.
Cirrus also received an order from an unnamed international customer for an Incident Training Application (ITA) prototype. The prototype, if accepted for further development, will be used in the jointly developed AN-BYG-1 Submarine Tactical and Weapon Control System to enhance submarine crew training.
