CAE has been awarded a contract by Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) to upgrade and expand the capabilities of the Swedish navy’s Naval Warfare Training System (NWTS) located at the Swedish Naval Warfare Centre (NWC) in Karlskrona, Sweden.
The NWTS in service with the country’s naval forces since 2016 is used for training in a range of disciplines, including sensor operations and command, control, communications, and computers (C4).
The upgrades to the NWTS will include enhancements supporting active sonar training, additional electronic warfare training capabilities, and improved training scenarios. In addition, CAE will add a range of computer-generated forces (CGF) entities to simulate both friendly and enemy forces, thus delivering a more realistic virtual training environment.
The student stations included as part of the NWTS include a range of core CAE simulation technologies, such as simulation systems for sonar, radar, and communications. The synthetic maritime environment has been built to the Open Geospatial Consortium Common Database (OGC CDB) standard, which is an open and international standard for the creation of synthetic environment databases.
