As many defence forces around the world implement a blend of live-virtual-constructive (LVC) training, CAE leverages its training systems integration expertise and capabilities to help its customers achieve the optimal balance to meet training and readiness requirements.

CAE has been a leading provider of simulation-based training for decades; therefore, we have unmatched experience developing and delivering virtual training, which is often supplemented by constructive simulation technologies.  Today, CAE supports a range of live-flying training, including the delivery of live training for the NATO Flying Training in Canada program, at the Dothan Training Center where we provide the U.S. Army with comprehensive training that includes live aircraft training, and as a joint venture partner supporting the International Flight Training School (IFTS) in Italy.  We can help bring the live-virtual and constructive pieces together to implement a fully integrated training system. With our simulation-based systems, live training capabilities, building blocks such as the Open Geospatial Consortium Common Database (OGC CDB), and our computer-generated forces (CGF) constructive simulations, we can design and deliver fully integrated, interoperable, secure and immersive training enterprises to help maintain operational readiness.

There are savings and capability to be achieved from training in simulation-based environments, though we understand that live training plays an essential part to creating an integrated and balanced military training program.  Training in live-virtual-constructive environments really pushes the limits of traditional training methods as it offers a more realistic, digitally immersive experience and it allows for the performance of tasks or maneuvers that would be too dangerous if performed in a live platform. A truly integrated LVC training environment also provides infinite space to conduct training, variable threats needed for added realism, and the ability to test and exercise fifth generation platforms.
