CAE Rise Data Analytics Supplement Kongsberg K-Sim Bridge Training

CAE has adapted its Real-time Insights and Standardized Evaluation (RISE) product to enhance naval training. CAE Rise is a data-driven training system that leverages big data analytics to make training more objective, efficient and effective. A proven training system with CAE's global civil and military aviation customers, CAE Rise measures trainee performance in a simulator against pre-defined standards. CAE Rise fosters student-centric learning, reduces the instructor's assessment workload, and provides objective real-time insights into student performance which can be used for more effective coaching during the lesson. The student benefits from more focused coaching and feedback tailored to their strengths and weaknesses. Analysis of results for multiple students and cohorts over time identifies opportunities for continuous improvement of training. By interfacing CAE Rise to Kongsberg Digital's K-Sim Navigation (ship's bridge) simulator and defining relevant scenarios, CAE and Kongsberg Digital are optimizing training efficacy for bridge watchkeepers.

CAE’s Global Naval Experience

CAE has four decades of experience supporting the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and Canada’s defence research program through our modeling and simulation, training, and human factors engineering capabilities. Building on this experience, we continue to contribute to Canadian naval capability through our involvement in the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) project. Our global experience includes delivering a Naval Warfare Training System (NWTS) to the Royal Swedish Navy and leading the design and development of a comprehensive Naval Doctrine and Combat Training Centre (NDCTC) for the United Arab Emirates Navy.

CAE has also delivered modern Bridge Part-Task Trainers for the United States Navy Littoral Combat Ship, delivered by Xebec, a Joint Venture between CAE USA and Pinnacle Solutions, and we are upgrading the US Army’s Maritime Integrated Training System (MITS).

Under the five-year Platform Systems Training Contract (PSTC) CAE is supporting the transformation of future training delivered to mariners across the Canberra Class Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD), Hobart Class Destroyer (DDG), Supply Class Auxiliary Oiler Replenisher (AOR) and Huon Class Minehunter Coastal (MHC). CAE’s innovative solution will enable the Royal Australian Navy to accelerate training throughput and enhance delivery of sustainable distributed training - on-site, in port, and at sea.

The company has been designing MAD systems for over 40 years and has delivered over 2,000 MAD systems and equipment to military forces around the world including the ASQ-508 for the CP-140M.

The latest CAE MAD system is called CAE ASQ-252 (V) MAD-XR (Magnetic Anomaly Detection-Extended Role) and is significantly more compact than previous CAE MAD systems. CAE MAD-XR is a magnetic anomaly detection sensor with reduced size, weight, and power requirements allowing the MAD system to be extended to smaller platforms such as unmanned aerial systems (UASs), helicopters, small fixed-wing aircraft, as well as Unmanned Surface and Underwater Vehicles. The CAE MAD-XR has been in production since 2020 with systems being delivered to several customers including the United States Navy (USN) for the MH60R and Japan for the P1 Maritime Patrol Aircraft.

Land Vehicle Crew Training System (LVCTS) program

The Land Vehicle Crew Training System (LVCTS) program will be the most significant technological step forward in training ever implemented by the Canadian Army. Using a tightly integrated mix of high-fidelity full-motion simulators, medium-fidelity training devices with advanced imagery and representative equipment, and lower-fidelity part-task trainers, soldiers will learn to operate key vehicle driving and combat systems on the Leopard tank, Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV6), and Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle (TAPV) platforms. Training will take place in purpose-built facilities at five training locations across the country and will make provision not only for building individual driver, gunnery and crew commander skills, but also for enhancing combat team operations, and joint force integration. Drawing upon its significant pedigree of supplying advanced simulation and training products and services to the Canadian Armed Forces and militaries around the world, CAE with its main partner Elbit Systems and the LVCTS team intends to offer a full suite of training technologies, including systems to streamline training preparation and delivery, options for reducing reliance on scarce line instructional personnel, and mature, proven technologies to dynamically adapt training delivery and content to Canadian Army soldier’s needs – including remotely or in austere locations where supplemental or mission-specific training is required.
