CAE Wins Defence Contracts Valued At Some $91 Million

USAF, U.S. Navy, Australian Armed Forces To Purchase Training Services And Systems

CAE has announced that it has won defence contracts valued at more than C$120 million (approx. $91 million U.S.) to provide a range of training services and simulation product upgrades for global military customers.

Some of the key contracts include the United States Air Force exercising a contract option for CAE USA to provide MQ-1 Predator/MQ-9 Reaper remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) aircrew training services; the United States Navy exercising contract options on the MH-60 Tech Refresh and Procurement of Simulators program; and the Austrian Armed Forces awarding a contract to upgrade their CAE GESI command and staff training system.

"Our large installed base of existing training devices and simulation systems provide ongoing upgrade and update opportunities along with long-term service and support business," said Gene Colabatistto, CAE's Group President, Defence & Security. "We are pleased to continue our support of the United States Air Force as their training partner on the MQ-1 Predator/MQ-9 Reaper remotely piloted aircraft, which is the world's largest RPA training program."

U.S. Air Force MQ-1 Predator/MQ-9 Reaper
The United States Air Force (USAF) has awarded CAE USA a contract for option year three on the MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper remotely piloted aircraft aircrew training services and courseware development program. CAE USA works closely with active-duty USAF personnel to provide classroom, simulator and live flying instruction for more than 1,500 pilots and sensor operators who train annually at Holloman AFB, New Mexico; Creech AFB, Nevada; March Air Reserve Base, California; and Hancock Air National Guard Base, New York.

United States Navy
The United States Navy has exercised additional contract options as part of the MH-60R/S Tech Refresh and Procurement of Simulators (TRPS) program. Under the MH-60 TPRS program, CAE USA is performing major updates and upgrades to the U.S. Navy's suite of MH-60S Sierra and MH-60R Romeo training systems, including tactical operational flight trainers and weapons tactics trainers.

Austrian Armed Forces
CAE was awarded an upgrade contract to provide the latest generation CAE GESI command and staff training system to the Austrian Armed Forces, which has been using its existing CAE GESI constructive simulation system for more than two decades. The latest generation CAE GESI software will be provided to the Austrian Armed Forces in phases over the next year to update and enhance the command and staff training provided to military and civil commanders. Enhancements to the latest version of the CAE GESI software include an easy-to-use exercise editor, comprehensive after-action-review capability, and interoperability with a range of command and control (C2) systems.
