On this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Matthew Sibree, managing director IndoPac, defence & security at CAE, to discuss CAE’s recent expansion in the region and how the company delivers training support for Australia’s future warfighters.
The pair begin by discussing how CAE, established 75 years ago, has expanded from offering pilot training solutions to offering multi-domain training solutions to support airmen, sailors and soldiers by designing and equipping militaries with cutting-edge training capabilities.
The podcast then analyses how CAE seeks to integrate into Australian industry and domicile training expertise within Australia, and how domain siloed training is unsuitable for modern warfare - requiring the delivery of multi-domain training environments.
The pair wrap up the podcast discussing how CAE utilises cutting-edge technology such as biometric scanners to ensure that training is individually tailored to the warfighter, and how virtual training environments enable the military to conduct large-scale testing without signposting clandestine military capabilities to one’s adversaries.
Enjoy the podcast,
