Lockheed Martin Australia signed a contract with theAustralian Government to deliver Australia’s largest, networked simulationsystem. In partnership with Calytrix Technologies and NEC Australia, this teamwill work to transform how the Australian Defence Force (ADF) trains anddevelops future generations of defence personnel.

Lockheed Martin Australia leads a team of partners providing an Australian solution for the ADF creating up to 100 jobs located in Canberra, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth. This partnership is at the heart of the Lockheed Martin Australia’s commitment and presence in Australia as an industry partner and sovereign capability enabler.

“The addition of fifth generation capabilities such as theF-35 and Aegis, means Australia has one of the most modern defence forces inthe world,” said Vince Di Pietro, chief executive, Lockheed Martin Australia.“JP9711 will transform the ADF’s approach to training and simulation, ensuringthe latest technologies are used to best prepare our service personnel for thecomplexity and challenges of the future.”

The partnership with Calytrix Technologies and NEC underpins Lockheed Martin’s continued commitment to developing and sustaining relationships with highly innovative high-tech local companies. Calytrix is a prime example of Lockheed Martin’s commitment to Australian owned businesses, delivering not just job opportunities but the further development of its virtual 3D training software (Titan) as a core element of its solution, thus enhancing local IP and export opportunities. This contract is an example of supporting opportunities for local sovereign industry to successfully compete for prime contracts in both local and global supply chains.

Amy Gowder, vice president and general manager, LockheedMartin Training and Logistics Solutions based in Orlando, Florida, said, “OurDistributed Mission Training capability integrates live, virtual andconstructive entities into one shared training environment, creatinginteroperability across all military platforms.”

Shawn Parr, chief executive officer of Calytrix Technologiesbased in Perth, Australia, said Calytrix has been instrumental in providingsimulation support for the total system.

“Calytrix has been a key developer of the ADF’s currentjoint simulation capability since 2006. The JP9711 program provides the opportunityfor Calytrix to directly leverage this experience and to support the warfighterwell into the future with next generation training technologies and services,”said Parr.

NEC Australia demonstrates its commitment to the ADF withthe delivery of a world-class training and simulation platform, providing theICT infrastructure backbone and interfaces for the end-to-end JP9711 solution.
