CAE to deliver Swedish navy training solution
Montreal-based CAE has been selected by the Swedish navy to provide a comprehensive naval warfare training system (NWTS).
The system, to be delivered to the Swedish Naval Warfare Centre in Karlskrona late next year, includes “simulation software, hardware, wargaming consoles, and instructor operator stations that will be used to train and educate sailors and officers in naval tactics, procedures and doctrine,” the company said in a release last week.
The NWTS, which will be provided as three classroom training systems, will help train personnel for sensor operations; command, control, communications and computers (C4), and weapon systems. CAE said the system “will allow the Swedish Navy to train and rehearse for operations in anti-air warfare (AAW), anti-surface warfare (ASuW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW), mine warfare (MW) and search and rescue (SAR).”
“We are honoured the Swedish Navy has selected CAE to provide a comprehensive Naval Warfare Training System,” said Gene Colabatistto, group president for Defence and Security. “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 programs.”
In addition to providing the classroom training systems for the NWTS, 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.
