MONTREAL: CAE’s US subsidiary has won a US$44 million contract to design and manufacture additional MH-60R helicopter simulators for the US Navy.
The first simulator will be a fixed-based MH-60R TOFT delivered to Naval Station (NS) Mayport near Jacksonville, Fla. in mid-2013. The other one will be a full-motion simulator delivered in the summer of 2014 to the Naval Air Facility (NAF) in Atsugi, Japan.
Montreal-based CAE, a manufacturer of aerospace simulators and supplier of flight training systems, said the contract includes options to design and manufacture two additional MH-60R TOFTs and could bring the total value of the contract to approximately US$78 million.
Including this contract, CAE said it has or will deliver seven MH-60R TOFTs to the Navy and has also developed two MH-60R avionics maintenance trainers.
Since 2004, there are seven MH-60S operational flight trainers and five MH-60S weapons tactics trainers delivered or on the way.
