In this episode of Vanguard Radio, J. Richard Jones talks with a very special guest, Joe Armstrong, Vice‐President & General Manager of CAE Canada. CAE is a worldwide leader in training for the civil aviation, defence and security, and healthcare markets.

Of these markets, Joe is responsible for leading CAE’s Defence & Security business in Canada. His portfolio spans a range of key programs including Software & Systems Engineering support to the CF‐18 fleet, the operations of the Air Mobility Training Center supporting the C130H & J fleets in CFB Trenton, the MHLH Training Center in Petawawa, and The NATO Flying Training Center in Moose Jaw and Cold Lake.

Hear about CAE’s global encompassing work, the evolution of pilot training, lessons to apply, the importance of Canada’s Industrial and Technological Benefits Policy, what it means to be a Training Systems Integrator and much more.

Next week, we will present Part 2 of this interview in which Joe will delve into MAD XR technology, which was developed jointly with DRDC and NRC. Joe will also talk about AI and AR technologies and how these will help shape the future of pilot training.
