MONTREAL: CAE Inc. has been awarded $125 million in contracts from defence forces in the US and other unidentified countries for simulators and flight training systems.
The Montreal-based aerospace manufacturer noted contracts that include two multi-crew simulators for a new undergraduate program of the United States Navy, additional work for the United States Air Force as part of the KC-135 Aircrew Training System (ATS) contract, and two contracts from undisclosed customers in the US and the Middle East to design and manufacture seven operational flight trainers.
Simulators for the US Navy Undergraduate Military Flight Officer program will be based on CAE’s existing mission crew trainer and tactical mission trainer products. The company said the simulators will be used by the Navy to provide student flight officers in a “joint, network-centric warfare environment.”
Training tasks will include: command and control, electronic warfare, navigation, sensor operations and weapons employment.
Delivery is to take place in 2013.
