CAE USA has won a contract valued at over $135 million, including options, by the U.S. Special Operations Command.
The company is to lead integration efforts for the Special Operations Forces Global Situational Awareness initiative. USSOCOM has exercised the first option of the contract valued at over $19 million.
CAE USA is pleased to be chosen to lead the Mission Command System Common Operational Picture development and integration efforts, said Ray Duquette, CAE USA president and general manager.
“Combining decades of experience creating digital ecosystems with our multi-source data fusion and artificial intelligence/machine learning capabilities, CAE is providing a single visualization platform to support collaborative command and control decision-making in real-time,” he added.
SOCOM’s Mission Command System will incorporate new solutions developed by CAE that integrate mission operations in a single synthetic environment.
“The USSOCOM Mission Command System program and our integrated digital ecosystem solution are directly related to CAE’s strategy to leverage our world-class modeling and simulation expertise beyond training to adjacent markets such as mission and operations support,” said Daniel Gelston, group president of Defense & Security at CAE.
“Integrating data analytics, artificial intelligence and digital immersion technologies into a synthetic environment has the ability to create an incredibly powerful tool for analysis, planning, and decision support,” he added.
