To ensure the fighter aircraft training environment is optimized.


This project is in pre-Identification and will build upon the existing CF-188 Advanced Distributed Combat Training System. It will target investment in advanced simulation architecture such as Live, Virtual, Constructive, thereby increasing overall training efficiency. LVC will allow the simulator to link to other Royal Canadian Air Force simulators across a distributed network, utilizing common industry protocols, such as High Level Architecture. In addition, it will link the simulator to live aircraft in a manner which is seamless to the CF-188 operator, greatly increasing the training value when utilizing live assets. The project will work in concert with the Canadian Advanced Synthetic Environment to ensure these enhancements are complementary to existing and future Royal Canadian Air Force weapons system simulations.
