CAE wins defence contracts for Poland valued at more than C$115 million
These include contracts to provide a C295 full-flight simulator to the Polish Air Force, a contract extending the maintenance and support services provided at the German Army Aviation School, a contract to conduct a training needs analysis study for the German-French Tiger Helicopter Technical School, and contracts to support the New Zealand Defence Force's SH-2G(I) Super Seasprite synthetic training devices.
CAE was awarded a contract from prime contractor Airbus Defence and Space to design and manufacture a C295 full-flight simulator (FFS) for the Polish Air Force. The C295 FFS will be the fourth to be developed by CAE through a strategic cooperation agreement with Airbus Defence & Space under which CAE is the preferred provider of simulation and training systems for C295 aircraft programs worldwide.
The CAE-built C295 simulator will support the training requirements of the Polish Air Force and be delivered in 2017 to Balice Krakow Air Base. The Polish Air Force has a fleet of 16 C295 aircraft used for national and international transport operations.
The Polish Air Force's C295 FFS will be designed to meet the standards of Level D, the highest qualification for flight simulators. The C295 FFS will feature the CAE True electric motion system, CAE Medallion-6000 image generator, and the common database (CDB) architecture, which enables real-time mission training capabilities. ■
