Montreal-based CAE has won a series of services and upgrade contracts, adding approximately C$90 million to its fiscal year 2013 fourth quarter.

The contracts include: maintenance, logistics and engineering support services to the USAF C-130J Maintenance and Aircrew Training System program and the C-130 Aircrew Training System program, all under a subcontract from Lockheed Martin; upgrades on U.S. Navy MH-60S operational flight trainers and weapons tactics trainers to increase training system fidelity; and continued provision of on-site maintenance for flight simulation equipment for the German Armed Forces, part of a one-year contract extension for services that cover maintenance of flight simulators for fighter aircraft, transport aircraft and helicopters.

“Our large installed base of simulators and training devices around the world continue to provide a steady source of orders for ongoing sustainment, maintenance and support services,” said Gene Colabatistto, group president for Military Products, Training and Services. “We are also seeing increased opportunities for simulator upgrades and updates as defence forces look for ways to increase the amount of training done in a synthetic environment.”
