 The 10th Command User Event will be hosted in Italy for the first time, at Casa dell’Aviatore (Italian Air Force club - address: Viale dell’Università 20, 00185, Rome) from the 18th to the 22nd September 2023. Our thanks and appreciation to Aeronautica Militare Italiana for making this possible.

The Command events are proving increasingly popular so, if of interest, we advise you to confirm your bookings as quickly as possible, as the space is limited.  

Command PE continues to expand in content and features and this year’s event will include some of our latest upgrades e.g. ‘Real Time MultiPlayer (RTMP)’, ‘Amphibious Ops Planner’ and ‘Logistics upgrades,’ plus some as yet unannounced features.

The event will include training from beginner to experienced level, carried out by leading figures in the sector and is targeted towards your own specific needs. It will include a range of analysis and experimentation tools which are unique to CPE. CPE boasts a powerful, scalable simulation engine which utilizes the most comprehensive and unique database of platforms and weapon systems in existence, dating from WW II to near future.

Command PE is an award-winning all-domain-based battlespace, set on a full 3D globe, at the tactical to operations scale, using real physics to model sensors and performance that provides a holistic view of the battlespace which is vital for training and analysis of complex modern operations. It represents a tailored solution that enhances the simulation and analysis needs of Military and Professional clients and its flexible design affords opportunities for gamification of learning and investment decisions seldomly seen elsewhere.

Current CPE clients include various elements of the USAF, USMC, USN, US Army, the UK, Australia, Canada and various other NATO countries and Military contractors. A further testament to the value of our COTS software in the modern world.
