CAE and Elbit Systems have signed joint agreement to pursue United Kingdom MoD training opportunities under the Defence Operational Training Capability (Air) programme (DOTC-A). 

CAE and Elbit Systems will collaborate to pursue the DOTC (A) Core System and Services (DCS&S) project as well as the Typhoon Future Synthetic Training (TFST) project, the companies said in a statement Tuesday.

According to the UK MOD, the DOTC(A) programme and the specific training opportunities that fall under the overall project enable the air force to better train together as a total force, support the defense-wide requirement to download live training into the synthetic environment and allow a rebalancing of live/synthetic training.

"We recognise defence forces are looking to increasingly leverage synthetic environments for more of the operational and mission training they need to conduct, and the UK MOD's Defence Operational Training Capability programme aims to address these requirements," said Jonathan Browning, Vice President of Strategy and Business Development, CAE UK.
