CAE Wins Predator And Reaper UAV Aircrew Training services, Other Contracts

CAE has won C$120 million (US$91.9 million) defense contracts to provide a range of training services and simulation product upgrades for global military customers.

Some of the key contracts include the United States Air Force exercising a contract option for CAE USA to provide MQ-1 Predator/MQ-9 Reaper remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) aircrew training services, the United States Navy exercising contract options on the MH-60 Tech Refresh and Procurement of Simulators program and the Austrian Armed Forces awarded a contract to upgrade their CAE GESI command and staff training system.

"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's Group President, Defence & Security in  statement Tuesday.

The United States Air Force (USAF) has awarded CAE USA a contract for option year three on the MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper remotely piloted aircraft aircrew training services and courseware development program.

The United States Navy has exercised additional contract options as part of the MH-60R/S Tech Refresh and Procurement of Simulators (TRPS) program.

Under the MH-60 TPRS program, CAE USA is performing major updates and upgrades to the US Navy's suite of MH-60S Sierra and MH-60R Romeo training systems, including tactical operational flight trainers and weapons tactics trainers.

CAE was awarded an upgrade contract to provide the latest generation CAE GESI command and staff training system to the Austrian Armed Forces.  

The latest generation CAE GESI software will be provided to the Austrian Armed Forces in phases over the next year to update and enhance the command and staff training provided to military and civil commanders.

Enhancements to the latest version of the CAE GESI software include an easy-to-use exercise editor, comprehensive after-action-review capability, and interoperability with a range of command and control (C2) systems.
