Late last year, CAE and Israel Aircraft Industries started working together to develop a new prototype for embedded and virtual training. The main applications for any resulting technology will be training military personnel to operate fighters and unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as command, control, communications, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems.

CAE is contributing its Strive software suite to develop a framework that creates a synthetic and virtual environment that can immerse crew in as close to real combat situations as possible. Computer-generated forces will be applied to represent the enemy. IAI’s Lahav division will help to integrate these training elements with real sensors, avionics and C4ISR systems. This approach to embedded or virtual training has already been used by customers such as the U.S. special forces.
