OTTAWA --- CAE formally launched its new CAE Professional Services unit today at CANSEC, Canada's largest conference focused on defence and security technology.
Resulting from CAE's recent acquisition of Greenley & Associates, an Ottawa-based consulting company, CAE Professional Services will spearhead CAE's initiatives to support defence, government, and security agencies throughout the lifecycle of their projects, from initial research and concept development to design and production. The unit will deliver independent consulting services in project management, systems and capability engineering, human factors engineering, emergency management, and modelling and simulation solutions to clients in aerospace, defence, homeland security, and emergency management, helping these clients to analyze and evaluate a range of scenarios.
"Government clients around the world are looking to speed up the development of complex solutions while reducing cost and risk," said Bruce Miles, Vice President, Business Development, CAE. "Our Professional Services unit will provide expertise and independent consulting to customers early on in the defence life cycle, to help them 'see the finish before they start'."
Over the coming months, CAE will establish CAE Professional Services representation at each of its primary Military locations: Tampa, U.S.A.; Burgess Hill, U.K.; Stolberg, Germany; and Sydney, Australia. CAE Professional Services will remain headquartered in Ottawa and will be headed by its predecessor company's founder, Mike Greenley.
CAE is a leading provider of simulation and modelling technologies as well as integrated training services for commercial and business aviation, and defence customers worldwide. The company has annual revenues of approximately C$1 billion, with operations and training facilities in 17 countries on five continents.
