M-346 aircraft

CAE has been awarded a series of contracts to supply simulators and support services to the defence forces of 15 countries, including the air forces of Israel and the UK, as well as Nato.

Valued at a combined C$100m ($100.33m), the contracts cover the delivery of simulators for the Israeli Air Force’s (IAF) M-346 aircraft, support services for RAF’s medium support helicopter aircrew training facility (MSHATF), as well as maintenance and support services for the Nato E-3A training devices.

Awarded by Elbit Systems, the first contract supports the IAF’s future trainer aircraft programme and includes the supply of segments of the M-346 Master full-mission simulators and operational flight simulators for integration into the M-346 ground-based training system (GBTS).

The simulators are scheduled to be ready for training by the second half of 2014.

"Valued at a combined C$100m ($100.33m), the contracts cover the delivery of simulators for the Israeli Air Force’s (IAF) M-346."

As part of two separate contracts from the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), the company will provide training services and simulator upgrades at MSHATF, which features six CAE-built dynamic mission simulators, including three Chinook, two Merlin and one Puma, along with four computer-based ground school training classrooms and an advanced tactical control centre.

As part of the first contract, the company will deliver both ground school and simulator aircrew training services at MSHATF on the Puma HC2 helicopter until 2017.

The company is modernising the Puma dynamic mission simulator at MSHATF to the new Puma HC2 configuration, which is expected to be ready-for-training in late 2013.

CAE will also upgrade one of the CH-47 Chinook dynamic mission simulators, in order to ensure similarity with the RAF CH-47 Mk4 configuration, also known as the JULIUS programme.

The first simulator has already been upgraded by the company to the Mk4 standard.

Under the third contract, the company will supply maintenance and support services for the Nato E-3A flight deck simulator and E-3A flight training devices, located at Nato Airbase Geilenkirchen in Germany, for the next three years.
