An Israeli system used also by the Israeli Air Force has been selected to optimize the training of the C-5 crew of the U.S Air Force.

CAE US, in partnership with CymSTAR, have selected Fox developed by Israeli company Britannica knowledge systems as the training management system (TMS) for the U.S. Air Force C-5 Aircrew Training System (ATS) project.

According to the Israeli company the Fox system was selected for its unique algorithm-based optimization engine, which will create valid, feasible, and optimized training schedules that capture the U.S. Air Force’s real-world complexities.

With various courses for the whole C-5 crew, including pilots, loadmasters, maintenance, instructors, and flight engineers, the U.S. Air Force has extremely complex training schedule requirements. Fox will improve how training employees, physical resources, such as CAE’s trainers, simulators, training tools, and maintenance work, are used. Fox’s automation will allow planners and schedulers to work more efficiently, especially when unexpected problems develop.

“It is not the first time that CAE has selected Fox as the TMS of choice, which shows ongoing and repeated trust in Fox. This is a source of great pride for Britannica Knowledge Systems” said Ami Reshef, Account Executive at Britannica.

The U.S. Air Force will employ Fox to organize and deliver training for the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy aircrafts with its cutting-edge capabilities for Training Optimization and Learning Management in favor of their outdated GTIMS System, current LMS, and manual processes (LMS).

At the U.S. Air Force’s Lackland installation in San Antonio, Texas, Fox will be installed on-site.
