CAE wins contract to upgrade Swedish Navy’s NWTS training system

CAE has been awarded a contract to upgrade the Swedish Navy’s Naval Warfare Training System (NWTS) at the Swedish Naval Warfare Center (NWC) in Karlskrona.

The contract was awarded by the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration (FMV) procurement agency.

CAE developed the Swedish Navy’s NWTS under a contract awarded to the company in 2014. The full simulation-based NWTS entered service with the Navy in 2016.

The system meets the training needs of the Navy in sense operations, command, control, communications and computers (C4) and weapons systems.

CAE’s trainer suite provides the Swedish Navy with 52 student positions and 13 instructor operator positions to conduct training and rehearsals.

The student stations have simulation systems for sonar, radar and communications.

Commander of the Swedish Naval Warfare Centre, Magnus Jonsson, said: “We are continually looking for ways to improve training and make the delivery of training at the NWC more effective and efficient.

“The NWTS upgrades will help us improve the training provided to sailors and officers in naval tactics, procedures and doctrine.”

Under the contract, CAE will perform NWTS upgrades to support active sonar training and additional electronic warfare training capabilities. The enhancements will improve training scenarios.

The contract will also include the addition of Computer Generated Force (CGF) entities to enable simulation of friendly and enemy forces to enhance the training experience.

CGF entities will help create a more realistic virtual training environment for Swedish Navy personnel.

Marc-Olivier Sabourin, Vice President and General Manager Europe/Africa, CAE, said, “Sweden’s NWTS and our continued support is an excellent example of CAE’s naval training systems integration capabilities.

“These Phase I upgrades and other upgrades planned in future development phases will continue to add functionality and capabilities to a training system that has become an integral part of Swedish Navy training. “
