CAE has won a General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI) contract to develop a comprehensive synthetic training system for the United Kingdom’s Protector RG Mk1 Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) program.

The Protector will be operated by the Royal Air Force and is the UK-specific variant of GA-ASI’s certifiable MQ-9B SkyGuardian RPAS, which can meet the most stringent certification requirements of aviation authorities, the company said in a statement Friday.

CAE will design and develop a comprehensive synthetic training system that will include desktop and mission trainers specific to the Protector RPAS. 

The Protector mission trainers will be based on GA-ASI’s certifiable ground control station (CGCS) and will be the first simulators developed for this advanced CGCS. 

The company will also provide brief/debrief and scenario generation stations as part of the overall synthetic training system.

Deliveries of the training systems are scheduled to take place in 2020.
