CAE - New Simulator Contracts

CAE : 03 March, 2007  (Company News)
CAE today announced a series of product and service contracts valued at C$109 million. The contracts are with Japan Airlines for two Boeing 787 simulators, with AgustaWestland for an EH101 full crew mission simulator, with the German Armed Forces for maintenance and support services and with the United States Navy for the training of C-40A pilots and crew chiefs at CAE's Dallas training centre.
Two Boeing 787 simulators to Japan Airlines

CAE has sold two CAE 7000 Series Boeing 787 full-flight simulators (FFSs) to Japan Airlines (JAL). At list prices, including buyer-furnished data and equipment, the contract is valued at approximately C$36 million. These are the first two full-flight simulator (FFS) sales that CAE has announced in fiscal 2008.

The CAE 7000 Series B787 simulators for JAL will feature CAE's electric motion system and next-generation visual solution, including the new CAE Tropos-6000® visual system and Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) projectors. In addition, JAL has ordered a CAE Simfinity® B787 integrated procedures trainer (IPT). The first B787 FFS will be delivered to JAL's training centre at Haneda Airport in 2008.

'We are extremely pleased that the close, long-term relationship we have had with Japan Airlines will continue with the B787 program,' said Marc Parent, CAE's Group President, Simulation Products and Military Training & Services. 'As airlines begin to address their upcoming B787 training requirements, we believe our technology leadership, experience, and focus on customer support makes CAE the ideal B787 training partner.'

A series of European military contracts

CAE has also won a series of European military contracts valued at more than C$61 million.

CAE was awarded a contract by AgustaWestland to design an EH101 full crew mission simulator (FCMS) for the Marina Militare Italiana (Italian Navy). The EH101 FCMS will include the full mission flight simulator (FMFS) for training EH101 pilots and the rear crew trainer (RCT) for training the rear crew in the operation of all tactical, sensor, and weapon systems in the aircraft. The two trainers can be operated as standalone training devices or networked to provide full crew mission training. AgustaWestland will serve as prime contractor for the program with Italian industry, including Meteor, providing key subsystems such as the radar environment simulation.

'We are proud to be working with AgustaWestland and Italian industry once again as we begin design and development of a comprehensive EH101 training solution for the Italian Navy,' said Parent. 'As the military rotorcraft market continues to grow, CAE is well-positioned due to our extensive Helicopter simulation experience, particularly for naval helicopters requiring a training solution for both the flight and rear crews.'

The EH101 FCMS will be delivered to Naval Air Station Luni in early 2010. The EH101 FMFS will feature the CAE Medallion-6000TM visual system with Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) projectors and a 220° x 60° field-of-view display system. CAE will also lead development of the sonar simulation for the RCT. The Italian Navy has ordered 22 out of 24 EH101 helicopters to be used for anti-submarine warfare, amphibious support, and airborne early warning.

In Germany, CAE will continue to provide on-site maintenance and support services for all German Armed Forces' flight simulators including Eurofighter, Tornado and P-3C Orion training devices. In addition, CAE will provide maintenance and logistics support, repair services, and engineering support for the Helicopter simulators located at the German Army Aviation School at Bueckeburg. CAE will team with Indra of Spain to design and develop two EC135 FTDs for use at Eurocopter training centres in Germany and the United States.

United States Navy C-40A training

CAE has won a five-year contract valued at approximately C$12 million to train United States Navy (USN) C-40A pilots and crew chiefs at CAE's Dallas training center. The C-40A is a Navy-configured Boeing 737-700 aircraft used to provide intra-theater transportation of passengers and cargo as well as logistics support to the Navy.

CAE will provide comprehensive classroom and simulator instruction for all USN C-40A pilots and crew chiefs, including initial, transition, and recurrent training. CAE has provided the US Navy with C-40A training since 2002.

'CAE provides high-quality, customized training solutions in locations that are convenient to our customers. We are confident the Navy's C-40A pilots and crew chiefs will continue to receive training that prepares them for mission success,' said Jeff Roberts, CAE's Group President, Innovation and Civil Training & Services.
