CAE today announced it has won a series of services and upgrade contracts during the first two months of its fiscal year 2013 fourth quarter valued at approximately C$90 million. They include contracts to provide C-130 training support services, upgrades for the United States Navy’s MH-60S helicopter simulators and training devices, maintenance and support services for the German Armed Forces and a contract extension to provide in-service support services for an undisclosed customer.

“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, Military Products, Training and Services, CAE. “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.”
