Cubic integrates ACMI into CWES

1st July 2016 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cubic Global Defense (CGD) has successfully integrated the Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI) system onboard the Royal Canadian Air Force's F-18 aircraft to the Canadian Weapon Effect Simulation (CWES) system, it was announced on 29 June.

The capability was demonstrated during exercise Maple Resolve, at the Canadian Manoeuver Training Centre in Wainwright, Canada.

During the exercise, F-18 aircraft used the ACMI system to conduct simulated attacks and process real-time kill notification (RTKN) weapon effects on live, ground targets of opportunity outfitted with CWES systems.

The training was carried out to improve close air support coordination while preventing friendly fire incidents. Detailed, live-tracking operations-level control was recorded for comprehensive debriefs by Joint Terminal Attack Controllers and pilots.

Cubic's ACMI systems feature air-to-ground and air-to-air ground weapons simulations, and integrate with real-time monitoring capabilities; surface-to-air weapons simulation; and post-mission debriefs. The CWES system enables live force-on-force collective training exercises using radio signals and lasers.
