ITEC 2012 – A good Year for CAE

It has been a good year for CAE, who has been awarded a series of military contracts valued at more than C$100 million. They include contracts from Canada’s DoND to perform major upgrades to CC-130H and CH-146 GRIFFON simulators, a contract from  Professional Way in Malaysia to provide long-term support services for an AW139 full-flight simulator, a contract to develop two TORNADO maintenance trainers for the Luftwaffe and RAF(to be delivered in 2013), and two contracts from undisclosed customers (Europe and Asia) to provide a CAE 3000 Series helicopter simulator and related training services. Furthermore, CAE will install an ATR 42 /ATR 72 full-flight simulator (FFS) at its commercial aviation training centre in Bengaluru, India.

CAE’s global presence, our comprehensive portfolio of both simulation products and services, and a significant installed base continues to give us a solid pipeline of opportunities,” said Martin Gagné, CAE’s Group President, Military Products, Training and Services. “As militaries around the world face the reality of declining budgets, they will increasingly turn to simulation-based training to reduce costs and maintain readiness. CAE is well-positioned globally to address the growing use of simulation by governments and defence forces.”

CAE is a global leader in modelling, simulation and training for civil aviation and defence. The company employs more than 7,500 people at more than 100 sites and training locations in more than 20 countries. Through CAE’s global network of 34 civil aviation, military and helicopter training centres, the company trains more than 80,000 crewmembers yearly. CAE’s business is diversified, ranging from the sale of simulation products to providing comprehensive services such as training and aviation services, professional services and in-service support. The company applies its simulation expertise and operational experience to help customers enhance safety, improve efficiency, maintain readiness and solve challenging problems. CAE is now leveraging its simulation capabilities in new markets such as healthcare and mining.

CAE’s Burgess Hill training centre caters to the needs of both business and civil aviation training. Located south of London in West Sussex in the south-east of England, the centre recently expanded and currently houses 13 civil and business full flight simulators, with capacity to grow to 16 full flight simulators.

Burgess Hill showcases CAE’s commitment and dedication to its new Land Simulation Solutions. With the FY2011 revenue showing 53% in defence, new emerging markets are South America, South-East Asia/Pacific, India, and North Africa.
"North Africa is very pro-active, they want a lot of Western technology," said Ian Bell, CAE UK MD.
Known as an Aircraft Simulation Company, CAE now is expanding into the land arena with products such as
  • Simulators and network trainers for armour, infantry, artillery and air defence examples (STRZKER Driver Trainer, LEO 2A4, ARJUN, T72/T90, WARRIOR IFV etc),
  • High fidelity 3D simulators for commanders, staff and leader trainer for military trainers (CAE GESI), and
  • Advance virtual maintenance training and simulation for ground combat and communication systems (US Army Virtual Maintenance Training for ABRAMS, BRADLEY, MLRS and HIMARS).
