CAE is pleased to highlight Dell Technologies as a featured collaborator on the U.S. Air Force’s Simulators Common Architecture Requirements and Standards (SCARS) program demonstration at this year’s I/ITSEC conference. The SCARS program integrates and standardizes the service’s aircraft training simulators and streamlines the quick distribution of updates and information. Dell Technologies has been a key contributor since the beginning of CAE’s SCARS efforts, supporting the design of a secure, interoperable and scalable infrastructure designed to assist the simulation workloads with power and efficiency. CAE and Dell Technologies continue to work together to meet and exceed government requirements and customer expectations.
“It’s an honor to support this USAF program and that would not have been possible without the partnership of CAE. This is only a small sample of what I believe our companies can accomplish together,” says Jim Kelly, senior vice president and general manager of Dell Technologies federal.
“Through collaboration and a dedication to the customer we are able to work with great companies like Dell Technologies to bring the best solution to the U.S. Air Force and the defense industry,” says Lenny Genna, vice president and general manager, CAE Mission Systems.
CAE USA, following the acquisition of the former L3 Link Simulation and Training business, now leads the team that will help transform the U.S. Air Force’s flight simulators and enable more distributed, networked, and cybersecure mission training. CAE USA is the prime contractor on the Air Force’s SCARS program, which will integrate and standardize the service’s aircraft training simulators. Approximately 2,400 simulators across 300 locations will be updated with the new common architecture. The initial task order covers nine sites and integrates new standards into the A-10 and KC-135 platforms.CAE USA is developing a set of common standards for simulator design and operation that includes stricter cybersecurity criteria to enable the USAF to link simulators together, perform remote software updates, and enrich the training environment.
