CAE’s Gene Colabatistto: Industry Moves to Standardize Networked Aircraft Training Systems

Gene Colabatistto

Gene Colabatistto, CAE‘s group president for defense, has said that the training and simulation industry will move toward the standardization of interoperable aircraft simulators, Defense News reported Thursday.

Colabatistto told the Defense News at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education conference that training system providers aim to support the joint mission training of U.S. military and allied forces through networked training platforms “on a routine basis.”

He noted that industry’s focus has shifted from device-oriented training platforms to the ability to connect and interoperate simulators.

Colabattisto added that the challenges associated with connecting different companies’ training systems can be addressed by “simply deciding that we are going to talk to each other.”
