CAE won a contract to modernize NATO Airborne Early Warning and Control Program Management Organization (NAPMO) to E-3A flight deck simulator and training device at Germany.

CAE announced the winning at Farnborough Airshow.

The modernization effort to the E-3A flight simulators will ensure concurrency with the upgrades currently being performed on NATO's fleet of E-3A Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft. NATO's E-3A aircraft are being upgraded with glass cockpits and other advanced avionics to meet current and future Communication, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) airspace requirements.

The major modernization effort will be completed by 2018, which is when the aircraft upgrade program is scheduled for completion.

"The E-3A flight simulators help provide safe and cost-effective training for the 16 nations involved in the multi-national NATO E-3A Component," said Ian Bell, CAE's Vice President for Europe.
