Lockheed Martin Provides Computer Generated Forces Software for Norwegian Army
ORLANDO, FL, September 30th, 2002 -- Lockheed Martin Training's Export Computer Generated Forces product was selected for use at the Norwegian Army Low Level Air Defence System, or NALLADS, Training Centre, as part of its midlife upgrade program. Export CGF, developed by Lockheed Martin Information Systems, will provide the training system's tactical environment by simulating friendly and opposing forces, and will be used as the training instructors' interfaces with students.
"The selection of our CGF affirms our continued commitment to develop the best technologies for combat simulators," said John Hallal, President of Lockheed Martin Information Systems. "The CGF will assist in meeting the customer's vision by enhancing functionality and extending the training center's lifetime to meet current and future requirements."
The Norwegian Army has extended the life of the NALLADS system until 2015 under a contract with Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace.
"Export CGF was selected for the NALLADS Midlife Upgrade project for its simulation capabilities, model and behavior adaptability, and HLA compatibility," stated Bjorn-Anders Flaglien, Program Engineer at Kongsberg. "The Export CGF simulation architecture also makes it easy to enhance and modify its capabilities to match the new requirements."
This will be the second Norwegian Army training system built by Kongsberg that uses Lockheed Martin's Export CGF. In 1999, Kongsberg delivered the Combined Combat Simulator, or CCS, to the Norwegian Cavalry for basic gunnery training and tactical training up to the battalion level. The CCS provides an indoor education facility for the training of individual capabilities and technical skills, and for improving team performance and tactical skills.
