CAE today announced the successful demonstration of networking and interoperability of C-130J training systems with C-130J tactical airlift crew trainer (TACT).
The company made the statement at the SimTect/SimHealth show, Australia's annual conference and exhibition focused on simulation.
CAE linked C-130J full-flight and mission simulator (FFMS) with a C-130J tactical airlift crew trainer (TACT) to demonstrate a single virtual aircraft operating in a common synthetic environment. The networked training devices demonstrated how the entire mission crew, including C-130J pilots and loadmasters, could train together in an integrated virtual environment.
Peter Redman, Vice President and General Manager, CAE Australia said, "There are technical challenges associated with interoperability when trying to network training devices with different architectures from various manufacturers; however, these challenges can be overcome and the end result can be improved mission training prior to operational deployments."
