Weapon Effects Simulation Mid Life Upgrade

Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System


The Project will upgrade or replace the current hardware and software used by the Weapons Effects Simulation (WES) systems at Canadian Army bases. The Project will augment instrumentation and simulation equipment to increase the realism of joint collective training exercises. The Project will take advantage of technological advances to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of training and the After Action Review process.


Potential project requirements and deliverables could include: improvements to soldier and vehicle WES equipment, integration of air assets, improved exercise control software and communications networks, expansion of communications coverage zones, integration with constructive and/or virtual simulations, and instrumentation at urban training sites.
