PARIS, Sept. 24, 2019 -- Calian Group Ltd. (TSX:CGY) is today launching Calian MaestroEDE™, an innovative exercise management software solution designed to fulfill complex training objectives while adhering to the Canadian and NATO five step Systems Approach to Training. Watch video here.

The software solution was purpose-built by the Calian Training team responsible for the design, development and delivery of high-fidelity collective training for the Canadian military.

“In an ever-changing operational environment, synchronizing large, complex, full-scale exercises are a significant challenge. Military and counterintelligence organizations worldwide require exercise management software that is flexible, cost-effective, and that fulfills complex training objectives,” said Don Whitty, Vice President, Calian Training. “To deliver high-fidelity collective training for the Canadian military we needed an exercise management tool that would help us to effectively deliver and evaluate operational readiness exercises of any size, scope or complexity. That is why we developed Calian MaestroEDE.”

Calian Training team members are launching the product today at the 14th NATO CA2X2 (Computer Aided Analysis, Exercise, Experimentation) Forum 2019 in Paris, organized by the NATO Modelling & Simulation Centre of Excellence. With simple, integrated dashboards, scalable architecture and traceability to inject response, Calian MaestroEDE is currently operating on open and closed unclassified and classified networks.

“I am always excited about our innovation projects at Calian, with this new product launch directly supporting our service line evolution growth pillar,” stated Kevin Ford, President and CEO, Calian Group. “This product launch is a fantastic example of our training team innovating with our customers and working creatively to address a key training need within military organizations and any organization requiring high-fidelity, collective training exercises.”
