CAE has secured contracts worth approximately $91.2 million combined from internationalÂ military customersÂ to provideÂ aircrew training services andÂ simulation system updates.
The Montreal-headquartered companyÂ said Tuesday the contracts include awards from theÂ U.S. Air Force, Navy and Austria’sÂ armed forces.
“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,” saidÂ Gene Colabatistto, CAE group president forÂ defense and security.
The Air Force exercised the third option yearÂ on its contract with CAE USA to support theÂ MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 ReaperÂ aircrew training services and courseware development program, CAE said.
CAEÂ collaborates with Air ForceÂ personnel to provide classroom, simulator and live flightÂ instruction to approximately 1,500 pilots and sensor operators.
The Navy also exercised contract options for theÂ MH-60R/S Tech Refresh and Procurement of Simulators program that requires updates to the service branch’s suite of MH-60S Sierra and MH-60R Romeo training systems, CAE added.
Austria will acquire theÂ CAE GESI command and staff training system for itsÂ armed forces to replaceÂ the country’s legacyÂ CAE GESI constructive simulation system.
