CAE has been awarded a contract from Boeing to design and manufacture training devices as part of the C-130 avionics modernisation programme (AMP) for the US Air Force (USAF).

Under the subcontract, CAE will design and manufacture a new C-130 AMP weapon systems trainer (WST) and will also produce a second C-130 AMP avionics part task trainer (APTT) for USAF.

The training devices will be delivered to the C-130 aircrew training system at Little Rock Air Force Base, US, in 2014.

The company has been working with Boeing on the C-130 AMP since 2006 and has delivered one modified C-130 WST and one C-130 AMP APTT to date.
