CAE has helped Australian and British air forces to install a virtual database on their C-130J simulators as they prepared for relief and humanitarian aid efforts in Nepal, ADS Advance Magazine reported Monday.
The company built the database for airmen to visualize airfields in the cities of Kathmandu and Pokhara, where a massive earthquake occurred on April 25, according to the magazine.
CAE’s C-130J flight simulators are designed with an open database architecture that can be updated to facilitate joint distributed training activities.
Gene Colabatistto, group president for defense and security at CAE and an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2015, said the architecture offers synthetic environments for customers to rehearse tactical or humanitarian missions.
“We have CAE staff providing on-site services to our customers at numerous locations around the world, and we are very proud of the supporting role we play in contributing to the safety and readiness of our defence customers,” Colabatistto added.
