The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) approached AAI in 1999 about providing a complete onboard training system for its six FFG-class ships, and the company is currently under contract to develop an onboard training system for the Australian FFG-class ships, including radar interfaces, weapons interfaces, tactical-datalink interfaces, navigation, etc -- basically the same capabilities provided by the COCST, except these will all be permanently installed onboard the vessels.
The COCST is fully compatible with the BFTT, and large diagram on the center page draws the reader's attention to the different units produced by the company that can be combined into these systems, from radar stimulators to missile simulators.
The COCST will serve as an interim system, and it will be fully interoperable with BFTT.
