DEF Simulator Maintenance

Project scope

This project will consider the current and future capability needs relating to Defence simulator maintenance, including the use of emerging technologies. The project addresses ongoing Defence capability reviews, wider industry practices, or Defence legislative requirements.

 

This project addresses the ongoing requirement to review and update DEF Defence Training Package materials previously endorsed in 2015 and ensuring that Defence’s current and future capability needs are met beyond 2019-20. The project will be undertaken as part of ongoing Defence capability reviews across the Australian Defence Force. Where imported elective Units of Competency are identified as either deleted or superseded, the IRC may also elect to revise the affected Defence qualification(s) through the IRC minor upgrade process.
