Kongsberg Signs CTT Simulation Contract for Australian Air Warfare Destroyer Program


Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace (KONGSBERG) is pleased to announce the award of a Command Team Trainer Simulation Infrastructure contract in the order of 50 MNOK under which KONGSBERG will support Raytheon Australia Pty Ltd (the Australian Air Warfare Destroyer Combat System Systems Engineer) in the delivery of this central component of the Hobart Class Air Warfare Destroyers Command Team Trainer.

The Simulation Infrastructure is based on KONGSBERG’s PROTEUS Naval Training Technology and will provide the Hobart Class Command Team Trainer (CTT) with exercise control and a common synthetic environment for integration of the Aegis Weapon System and other Hobart class sensors and effectors. The Simulation Infrastructure also provides Link 11/16 and DIS interfaces for external joint collaborative training.

The contract is an extension of the Australian Tactical Interface (ATI) contract for the Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD) signed in June 2009 between KONGSBERG and Raytheon Australia, on behalf of the AWD Alliance.

“This contract is the result of long and dedicated work with the PROTEUS Naval Training Technology in Command Team Trainers, starting from our contract for the Ula Class submarine CTT, continuing through the Fridtjof Nansen class  Frigate CTT  and now the Hobart Class Air Warfare Destroyers  CTT in a close cooperation with the Royal Australian Navy”, says Executive Vice President Nils-Oddvar Hagen.
