Simulation Technician


Project Overview

The Combat Systems Simulator (CSSIM) is a system used by the Australian Defence Force (ADF) to train the warfighter in naval combat exercises. The CSSIM provides a near-perfect simulated environment that allows scenarios faced in today’s modern battlespace to be exercised within a training environment. DXC, a trusted ADF partner, is a long-standing supplier of custom combat simulation training solutions. CSSIM’s sustained growth presents opportunities for people to support a unique piece of technology whilst also playing a crucial role protecting Australia’s boarders.
