Cirrus Marks 20 Year Milestone
with Generic COMCEN Simulator (GCS) Contract

Posted 27 Aug 2016

Cirrus’ Managing Director Mr. Peter Freed announced today that Cirrus has been awarded a contract to supply a Generic COMCEN (Communications Centre) Simulator (GCS) to the Defence Force School of Signals Maritime Communications Information Systems Wing (DFSS MCISW) at HMAS Cerberus. The announcement coincides with the 20th anniversary of Cirrus' founding in 1996.
Mr. Freed stated: "I am pleased that Cirrus's strength in complex simulation system design has again been recognised through the awarding of the GCS contract, and that the technology, IP and engineering capability resident in Australia's high technology SME sector is highlighted in this way. The award, which follows on closely from the successful recent release of version 4.5 of the Air Combat Officer Training System (ACOTS), is a suitable marker of Cirrus' progression into its third decade of service to the ADF."
Within the project, contracted under the auspices of Navy Minor Project 1932, Cirrus' Simulation Training Network (STN) technology will be adapted to provide training in the operation of a modern COMCEN, within a scenario based simulation.
