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.
