JCTC centre

Calytrix Technologies has secured a series of contracts to supply support services for the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) Joint Combined Training Capability (JCTC) Centre in Canberra, Australia.

As part of the contracts, the company will support the centre’s transition from a technical simulation facility to a joint collective training centre, capable of training major command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) elements.

Initially intended to enhance ADF’s force preparation, JCTC now also seeks to assist the certification and assessment of Joint Task Force (JTF) headquarters, including Headquarters Joint Operations Command (HQJOC) and the Deployable Joint Force Headquarters (DJFHQ).

Calytrix CEO Shawn Parr said the company will provide an increased range of support to the JCTC in functional areas that enhance its existing delivery of core simulation, network and information systems services.

Having helped JCTC over a long period, the company is now looking forward to collaboration through its next period of growth.

"Calytrix is rightly proud of our achievements working with the JCTC," Parr said.
