CAE USA has received a contract from the US Air Force to upgrade two C-5 Galaxy weapon systems trainers (WSTs).

Under the contract, CAE will initially upgrade a C-5 WST currently located at Stewart Air National Guard Base (ANGB) to the new C-5 AMP configuration.

The upgrade will be part of the C-5 avionics modernisation programme (AMP) and the C-5 reliability enhancement re-engining programme (RERP).

CAE will also upgrade another C-5 WST, located at Dover Air Force Base, to the RERP configuration.

The RERP configuration upgrade will include new engine performance simulation software as well as a new aerodynamics model simulating the improved engine performance.

The current $10m contract includes options to upgrade additional C-5 WSTs and C-5 cockpit procedures trainers that could bring the value to $50m.
