CAE has won a $3 million contract from the U.S. Navy to supply 44 patient simulators intended to train the branch’s staff in performing medical services to injured troops.
The Navy Expeditionary Combat Command will deploy CAE’s Ceasar trauma simulation platform at tactical medical sites in the U.S., Spain and Guam, CAE said Wednesday.
CAE will also provide training support and system maintenance services for the command, according to the article.
Michael Bernstein, president of CAE Healthcare, said the business designed the Ceasar simulator to help non-traditional responders prepare for medical emergencies.
He added that the medical simulator has also been bought by the NATO Centre of Excellence for Military Medicine in Budapest, Hungary and the U.S. Center for Domestic Preparedness in Anniston, Alabama.
The technology is built for casualty care training activities in battlefield settings and extreme temperature environments, CAE says.
