CAE has secured contracts worth approximately $91.2 million combined from international military customers to provide aircrew training services and simulation system updates.
The Montreal-headquartered company said Tuesday the contracts include awards from the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Austria’s 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,” said Gene Colabatistto, CAE group president for defense and security.
The Air Force exercised the third option year on its contract with CAE USA to support the MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper aircrew training services and courseware development program, CAE said.
CAE collaborates with Air Force personnel to provide classroom, simulator and live flight instruction to approximately 1,500 pilots and sensor operators.
The Navy also exercised contract options for the 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 the CAE GESI command and staff training system for its armed forces to replace the country’s legacy CAE GESI constructive simulation system.
