Upgrading and further development of the Air Force's training simulator

Upgrading and further development of the Air Force's training simulator The Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) have ordered upgrading and further development of the environment simulator for STRIC from CelsiusTech Systems AB in Järfälla. STRIC is the Swedish Air Force operational Air Defence System and the simulator system is primarily used for the training of intercept controllers and tacticians of air surveillance and appointments at the Air Force's Air Defense System STRIC. A separate version of the simulator is additionally used for technical test and evaluation of STRIC. The order, which totals approximately 40 million SEK, includes upgrades and further development of functions in the simulator system which generate an authentic real world to the STRIC equipment in which the training takes place. The simulator simulates the STRIC's total surrounding environment that is to say the Gripen aircraft, Erieye and other surrounding systems from the air force, army and navy including modern data communication and tactical radio functions. The advanced simulator permits a very high level of realism in the training for tactical service in STRIC and it therefore reduces live training time by providing a virtual reality. The delivery of the new functions to the Air Force's school in Uppsala will take place at the turn of the year and are planned to be in operation there during the first quarter of 2001. Also included in CelsiusTech Systems AB's commission is definitions work for upgrades of the simulator.
