CAE Wins Eurofighter Simulator Work (Sep 20)

MONTREAL --- CAE has been awarded contracts by Eurofighter Simulation Systems valued at more than C$10 million to provide a visual system, synthetic environment software, and support services to Austria’s Eurofighter full-mission simulator.

CAE will provide a 13-channel CAE Medallion-S visual system for Austria’s Eurofighter full-mission simulator. In addition, CAE will deliver the Eurofighter-specific synthetic environment using the CAE STRIVE simulation development framework.

The CAE Medallion-S visual system is being used on all Eurofighter Aircrew Synthetic Training Aids requiring a visual solution, including full-mission simulators and cockpit trainer/interactive pilot stations. CAE is currently delivering visual systems for Eurofighter training devices being stationed at training bases for the four original Eurofighter partner nations: the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, and Spain.

“The visual system requirements for the Eurofighter program have clearly established CAE’s Medallion-S image generator as the choice for high-performance fighter jet training applications,” said Donald W. Campbell, CAE’s Group President, Military Simulation and Training. “We continue to make significant investments in our visual system capabilities to help ensure the mission readiness of aircrews flying the latest generation combat aircraft.”

Eurofighter Simulation Systems will deliver the Eurofighter full-mission simulator equipped with CAE’s Medallion-S visual system to the Austrian Air Force in early 2007.

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.
