CAE is developing CAE 300 series helicopter simulator that includes cockpits for Bell 412 and Bell 429 helicopters used by the Canadian Coast guard.
The CAE 3000 Series simulator also features CAE's roll-on or roll-off cockpit design, the company announced today.
CAE has also introduced CAE Medallion-6000XR image generator at the Interservice or Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) event held from November 28.
"Our new CAE Medallion-6000XR will deliver enhanced capabilities for generating highly immersive and realistic synthetic environments, said Marc St. Hilaire, CAE's Chief Technology Officer.
"We are developing our technologies such as the Medallion-6000XR to support and utilize Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) CDB (formerly known as Common Database) standard, which will facilitate interoperability and better enable integrated mission training." the Chief Technology officer said.
The CAE Medallion-6000XR was developed with support for the OGC CDB standard and builds on the performance of CAE's Medallion-6000 family of image generators and visual solutions tailored specifically for the military market.
Another feature of the CAE Medallion-6000XR image generator is that it supports recently approved OGC CDB standard enabling more accurate terrain profile and enhanced local terrain features such as rivers and roads. Further, it also features enhanced overall image quality and scene density capabilities with detailed synthetic environments and realistic night scenes for greater training realism and fidelity.
The image generator's features include Realistic 3D ocean, wakes, and ocean-to-shore simulation with enhanced whitecap and water illumination effects for improved overall visual cueing. It also includes updated scene densities for runways, taxiways, airport contaminants, aprons and terminal buildings delivering airport realism and support for animated 3D grass and 3D tree effects to further enhance realistic, immersive training.
Lastly, the image generator features enhanced particle-based recirculation and downwash effects for own ship and companion aircraft with ability to modify OGC CDB synthetic environments at run-time to change the terrain dynamically (CAE Dynamic Synthetic Environment).
Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has approved the CDB (Common Database) as an OGC standard. The adoption of the CDB as an OGC standard will bring together the geospatial intelligence and modelling and simulation industries to establish greater interoperability in the use of geospatial data
CAE has won more than a C$100 million worth defense contracts, including the one to continue KC-135 tanker aircrew training services for US air force. Similarly, US Navy has exercised a contract option for CAE USA to continue providing T-44C aircrew training services, the company announced today

CAE USA has been awarded a US Navy contract to provide the Brazilian Navy with a comprehensive S-70B Seahawk helicopter training system. CAE will design and manufacture two S-70B training devices: a fixed-base S-70B operational flight trainer (OFT) to be used for pilot training along with an S-70B weapons tactics trainer (WTT) to be used for training rear-crew sensor operators and airborne tactics officers
CAE has signed a contract with the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) to provide training services, including instructors, for the NATO E-3A Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircrew training program. The training service is required for NATO Airbase Geilenkirchen in Germany, the company announced today
CAE has won a contract from Australia's Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group to support and provide training services for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF)'s Hawk Mk127 fighter trainer. Under terms of the contract, CAE will provide classroom and simulator instructors RAAF Base Williamtown, in addition to providing maintenance and support services on the three CAE-built Hawk Mk127 full-mission simulators currently being installed at both RAAF Base Williamtown and RAAF Base Pearce, the company announced Tuesday
CAE has won C$175 million defense contracts to provide new simulation products, simulator upgrades and training support services for global military customers. Key contracts awarded during the third quarter of CAE's fiscal year 2017 include Babcock France to support pilot training for the French Air Force; Airbus Defence & Space ordering a new C295 full-flight simulator for its training centre in Seville, Spain, and continuing simulator upgrades as well as training support services on the MH-60 Seahawk for both the United States Navy and Royal Australian Navy
CAE USA has won an over US$50 million contract from US Army to provide rotary-wing flight training instructor support Services. Under terms of the contract which was awarded for the transition and base one-year period, CAE USA will provide classroom, simulator, and live flying instructor support services for the US Army's Aviation Center of Excellence (USAACE) in USA
