Australian industry partners secure additional US Army simulation contract

Perth-based Calytrix Technologies in collaboration with Newcastle-based TitanIM have secured additional funding to develop a solution for the US Army’s Synthetic Training Environment (STE) program.

Perth-based Calytrix Technologies in collaboration with Newcastle-based TitanIM have secured additional funding to develop a solution for the US Army’s Synthetic Training Environment (STE) program.

Calytrix has been engaged with the US Army on STE for the past two years and has based its proposals and development around Titan Common Synthetic Environment, a new and highly innovative 3D global simulation framework.

As detailed by the US Army: "The STE is an ambitious program enabling tough, iterative, dynamic and realistic multi-echelon/combined arms manoeuvre, mission rehearsal, and mission command collective training in support of multi-domain operations. The STE provides complex operational environment representations anytime and anywhere in the world. The STE will deliver collective training, accessible at the point of need in the operational, self-development and institutional training domains.

"The Common Synthetic Environment (CSE) will deliver this comprehensive, collective training and mission rehearsal capability and is comprised of three foundational capabilities: One World Terrain, Training Management Tool, and Training Simulation Software. The CSE enables the convergence of the live, virtual, constructive and gaming environments into the Synthetic Training Environment."

The Titan software amalgamated with an in-house developed Exercise Orchestration Network (EON) provides the three foundational capabilities of the US Army’s requirements. Recent additional funding by the US Army is accelerating Titan development and many new, and previously thought impossible, simulation capabilities are now being delivered.

Steve Salmon, business lead for Calytrix, said, "Over 30 companies, many of whom were large US defence primes, expressed an interest in the CSE component of STE. It is testament to the capabilities and potential of Titan that Calytrix is one of only two companies left competing for the provision of the One World Terrain, Training Simulation Software, Training Management Tools components."

These comments were reinforced by Calytrix CEO Shaw Parr: "It is exciting to be engaging with programs like STE as an Australian SME. Despite significant interest in the STE program across the board, Calytrix and TitanIM have demonstrated the capacity and innovation required to successfully compete on a world stage from our Australian base."

Calytrix will demonstrate its solution across a number of US Army bases in April prior to a detailed user assessment in May 2019. 

Calytrix Technologies is a training and simulation company specialising in developing and delivering integrated live, virtual and constructive training solutions. Uniquely combining simulation product development with training subject matter experts, Calytrix enhances operational readiness and training outcomes in both the defence and civilian domains.

TitanIM is a simulation software platform offering a new capability. Within minutes of picking up TitanIM for the first time, a user can leverage a whole world representation of Earth and create a new scenario, modify the environment, or participate as a virtual entity – at any point around the world.
