The Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP today announced the awarding of two contracts to Cirrus, for the supply of the ‘Tactical Electronic Warfare’ (TACEW) simulation training system and an ‘Incident Training Application’ (ITA) prototype.

In announcing the TACEW contract award, Min Pyne stated “The contract valued at around $4.4 million will see the development of a tactical electronic warfare training system to provide tuition, assessment and qualification of electronic warfare practitioners across the full range of Navy ships, from a single facility ashore.”
