The ADGESIM (Air Defence Ground Environment Simulator) Suite – is a suite of Windows-based COTS tools that enables Air Defence Management Training to be Planned, Executed and Evaluated to facilitate realistic and effective individual and command team training. ADGESIM supports Distributed Simulation, Sensor Modelling, Human in the Loop, After-Action Review (AAR) and Communications to provide a means for:

  • Training
  • Experimentation
  • Research
  • Mission Rehearsal

The ADGESIM Suite is modular and, as such, it allows the use of only those components a user requires. AWSIM is an example of a version of ADGESIM deployed at RAAF SAW and other Defence sites.



  • Interoperable (IEEE 1278.1A) with DIS and HLA
  • Modular and
  • Scalable

What RAAF Warfare Instructors say about ADGESIM:

“…ADGESIM components are used to train Air Surveillance Operators in surveillance duties and skills, and Air Battle Managers in Fighter Control. Ongoing improvements in the ADGESIM software have made it possible to simulate Large Force Employment scenarios involving dozens of simulated Aircraft and Surface contacts.  The improved fidelity of the ADGESIM software has allowed SACTU to replace some Live Control events with simulated events reducing the cost of training and reducing the cost of maintaining operator currency. The ADGESIM software is an integral part of SACTU’s mission, in these times of reducing live event requirements we are able to keep our Controllers and Surveillers current and sharp.”

  • ADGESIM and AWSIM are being used at DSTO and ADSTC to support ongoing research into distributed mission training and battlespace capability development.
