1 CFFTS Tactical Mission Training System Replacement

Information: Not Included

The proposal is being consolidated within another project - Future Aircrew Training project.

Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System


To provide the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) with the capability to train Air Combat Systems Officers (ACSOs) and Airborne Electronic Sensor Operators (AESOps) to the level required for employment on modern military ISR platforms.


The current TMTS system consists of a 24-seat simulator and the CT-142 (modified Dash-8) aircraft. As the Royal Canadian Air Force acquires new platforms with advanced sensor capabilities, the future TMTS must provide a realistic training environment coupled with advanced sensor capabilities to ensure candidates are qualified to operate in a modern battlespace. The TMTS must have the capability for GPS/INS, Electro-Optic Systems, SATCOM, Synthetic Aperture Radar and Transport Canada required navigation systems for IFR flight. Acoustic sub-systems such as passive and active sonobuoys must be available.

Preliminary Estimate

  • $50 million to $99 million
