Bangalore, Feb 17 (IANS) Wipro and CAE Inc, formerly Canadian Aviation Electronics, will jointly offer simulation-based training, maintenance and training support services for India’s defence forces, the Bangalore-based IT major said Wednesday.
“Wipro and CAE will collaborate to provide training systems integration and simulation-based solutions for areas like war gaming, C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance), and a range of defence platforms expected to be acquired by India’s defence forces,” Wipro said in a statement.

Simulation is the use of a mathematical model to recreate a situation, often repeatedly, so that the likelihood of various outcomes can be more accurately estimated.

“We are committed to enhancing India’s defence capabilities, and part of this commitment involves bringing state-of-the-art capabilities, technologies and solutions to India through collaboration and partnership with global leaders,” the statement said, quoting Partha Sarathi Guha Patra, vice-president of Wipro’s defence, security and offsets division.

CAE is a leader in training systems integration and simulation technologies and has made significant investments in India, Patra said.

Wipro will also work closely with Bangalore-based CAE India Private Limited, leveraging CAE’s full breadth of simulation products, technologies and capabilities to address the requirements of India’s defence forces, the statement said.

“The Indian defence market is of strategic importance to CAE and this importance is demonstrated in the investments and strategic relationships CAE has established in India,” said Ash Sarin, CAE’s regional vice-president for marketing and business development.

CAE India’s training and services centre in Bangalore became operational towards the end of 2008 with six simulator bays.
