The NSWC was recently established at the HMAS Watson Naval Base on Sydney Harbour. The NSWC will facilitate synthetic training events and focus on delivering local and distributed mission training activities in both land-based simulators and ships in an agile manner.

General manager of CDA Miles Macdonald said the company was excited to partner with the RAN to improve the NSWC.
