Royal Canadian Air Force Simulation Implementation Project

New and Replace Existing Systems


This project will implement the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) strategy for increased simulation use by building a common synthetic environment, providing the tools for scenario development and distributed exercise control and debrief, integrating targeted RCAF training devices and addressing training deficiencies identified via a comprehensive series of training needs analyses.


This project will provide an integrated, distributed simulation-based training system for the RCAF consisting of a common distributed training network with a centralized exercise control and debrief capability (Distributed Mission Operations Centre (DMOC). It will provide a common scenario development capability and a common exercise data generation capability. The project will acquire new devices as necessary, while integrating new and existing training devices into the distributed simulation-based training system.
