Forc3, a consortium led by Rheinmetall Canada, is advancing its goal of seeking opportunities from the Canadian Army’s Land Vehicle Crew Training System program, with training solution provider Calian joining as a new partner.

The LVCTS program is scheduled for implementation in 2025-2026, with funding of between $183 million and $365 million, according to the Canadian government website. The project requires a training system that will enable armored combat vehicle crews to train realistically at their home garrison sites through a networked synthetic environment.

According to Rheinmetall, Calian is bringing into Forc3 more than 25 years of experience providing training services to the Canadian Army and NATO forces.

Pietro Mazzei, Rheinmetall Canada CEO, expressed optimism on the complementary match of Calian and Forc3 capabilities. “We are very excited and confident that our combined solution and experience represents a compelling value proposition for the Canadian Army,” he said.

Donald Whitty, president of learning at Calian, relayed the company’s excitement in contributing advanced simulation and interoperability solutions to Forc3. “With our proven track record in designing and executing comprehensive, multi-domain training environments, we are uniquely equipped to enhance the operational readiness and effectiveness of the Canadian Army,” he said.

Other members of the Forc3 consortium include Lockheed Martin Canada, the ADGA Group, Bluedrop Training and Simulation, EllisDon Construction and Building Services and REDspace.
