CAE won a contract from an undisclosed Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) customer to develop a Joint Multinational Simulation Centre. The Gulf Cooperation Council is a regional, intergovernmental, political and economic union consisting of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.
CAE will provide the GlobalSim constructive simulation system that combines the Joint Theater-Level Simulation (JTLS) from Rolands & Associates with CAE's GESI as an integrated constructive simulation for command and staff training. CAE's GESI (GEfechts-SImulation System, the German word for combat simulation system) is a constructive simulation system designed to run complex and comprehensive exercises from company up to division level, both in a computer-assisted exercise (CAX) and classroom environment.
At the Joint Multinational Simulation Centre, commanders and operators from the customer’s Army, Air Force, Navy and Staff Colleges will use GlobalSim to conduct military training from the tactical to strategic level of operations. The constructive simulation system will be used to prepare commanders, officers and staff to make timely, informed and intelligent decisions across the full spectrum of operations. The Joint Multinational Simulation Centre will be designed to be used for military training between allied nations.
The combination of R&A's JTLS and CAE's GESI brings together a theater-level constructive simulation (JTLS) with a high-resolution, entity-level constructive simulation (GESI) to create a comprehensive federation that offers command leadership a single, realistic, multi-resolution view of the complete operational environment.
