CAE has received a potential five-year $40.9 million contract to provide remotely piloted aircraft training support services for United Arab Emirates“™ air force and air defense personnel.

The company said Monday its CAE Maritime Middle East subsidiary will act as the principal contractor and help the Middle Eastern country establish a training facility for RPAs.

Gene Colabatistto, president of CAE“™s defense and security group, said the company aims to demonstrate its capability as a training systems integrator through the contract.

Work covers the development of curriculum and courseware for RPA aviators and sensor operators that include courses related to UAE“™s medium-altitude, long-endurance unmanned aircraft as well as delivery of sensor operator trainers and unmanned aerial system mission trainers such as CAE Medallion-6000 image generator with common database system.
