Swedish naval warfare training system to be upgraded by CAENews
September 06, 2019
SWEDEN. CAE today announced it has recently been awarded a contract from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) to upgrade and expand the capabilities of the Naval Warfare Training System (NWTS) located at the Swedish Naval Warfare Centre (NWC) in Karlskrona, Sweden.
The NWTS, originally developed by CAE for the Swedish Navy and put into service in 2016, is used by the Swedish Navy for training in a range of disciplines, including sensor operations and command, control, communications, and computers (C4).
A total of 52 student stations along with 13 instructor operator stations allow the Swedish Navy to train and rehearse for their operations.
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.
