Calytrix Technologies recently celebrated 15 years of working alongside the Australian Defence Force’s Joint Collective Training at the Headquarters Joint Operations Command (HQJOC), having supported Defence with the delivery of simulation effects for major exercises since 2006.

Calytrix explained that the journey began as part of Defence’s JP 2098 program, providing simulation capabilities as a concept demonstrator to Defence for Talisman Sabre in 2007. Over time, the partnership has continued to grow and now sits within the HQJOC J7 Joint Collective Training Branch.

“Throughout the past 15 years Calytrix has supported this capability growth through five different HQ locations, three name changes, and through the organisational change from HQJOC J8 to its current home within the J7 Branch,” a statement from Calytrix read.

Over the last 15 years, Calytrix had progressed from developing a “proof of concept” for the ADF through to a complete training facility to bolster and refine the capabilities of Australia’s war fighters. This was achieved through the implementation of US created JLVC training architectures in the ADF, as well as the creation and integration of the custom made Defence Training and Experimentation Network (DTEN) to improve Defence's training. 

This regimen has supported over 200 training activities for the Australian Defence Force, including single service activities and mission rehearsals.

Currently, Calytrix has partnered with Lockheed Martin Australia for the JP 9711-1 project to develop a core simulation capability and has scaled to over 50 full-time staff.

Steve Salmon, principal of Calytrix Training Systems, welcomed the company's ongoing partnership with the ADF to deliver improved training outcomes. 

“In many ways the growth of Calytrix as a unique Australian owned simulation and training company has mirrored the growth of the ADF’s capability to develop and deliver significant simulation-based training effects to the ADF Warfighter,” Salmon said.

“Our development and heritage as a local services and products provider is inextricably linked to this key capability and we are very proud to have been given the trust and responsibility to support the ADF on this journey.”
