CAE USA a signé un contrat de sous-traitance avec Lockheed Martin afin d'appuyer l'élaboration de dispositifs d'entraînement aux systèmes d'armes

Tampa (Floride, États-Unis), le 20 november 2017, 2017 - (NYSE : CAE; TSX : CAE) - CAE USA a remporté un contrat de sous-traitance de Lockheed Martin visant à appuyer la conception, l'élaboration et la fabrication de six dispositifs d'entraînement aux systèmes d'armes (WST) pour l'appareil C-130J de la United States Air Force et de la Air National Guard américaine.

La commande de ces six dispositifs d'entraînement aux systèmes d'armes pour l'appareil C-130J a été reçue au cours du deuxième trimestre de l'exercice financier 2018 et a été incluse à l'annonce de revenus trimestriels effectuée le 10 novembre 2017.

« Nous sommes heureux de poursuivre notre partenariat de longue date avec Lockheed Martin pour la conception et l'élaboration de systèmes de formation relatifs à l'appareil Super Hercules C-130J », a déclaré Ray Duquette, président et directeur général de CAE USA. « Les capacités haute fidélité de ces dispositifs d'entraînement aux systèmes d'armes pour l'appareil C-130J permettent aux Forces aériennes d'intégrer de plus en plus la formation virtuelle à leur programme de formation global, ce qui, en fin de compte, favorise la sécurité, l'efficacité et l'état de préparation aux missions pour les équipages. »

Les dispositifs d'entraînement aux systèmes d'armes pour le C-130J sont des simulateurs de mission à système de mouvement complet qui simulent avec exactitude l'appareil et ses diverses missions. Les simulateurs recréent les sons, le mouvement, l'environnement virtuel et tous les autres systèmes requis pour fournir un environnement de formation en vol haute fidélité et réaliste. En 2020 et en 2021, ces six dispositifs d'entraînement aux systèmes d'armes pour l'appareil C-130J seront livrés à diverses bases aériennes.

    NEWS PROVIDED BY Public Services and Procurement Canada Jan 08, 2021, 14:11 ET GATINEAU, QC, Jan. 8, 2021 /CNW/ - Through the National Shipbuilding Strategy, the Government of Canada is committed to providing members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) with safe and effective vessels required to protect Canadian sovereignty, while creating jobs and generating economic benefits for communities across Canada. Following an open and competitive process, Public Services and Procurement Canada, on behalf of National Defence, has awarded a $16.5-million contract to Zodiac Hurricane Technologies Inc., from Delta, British Columbia, for inspection, repair and overhaul work, on an as-required basis, on inflatable rubber boats and rigid (hull) inflatable boats. Inflatable boats provide a critical operational capability to all elements of the CAF. They are used to support a wide range of missions, including search and rescue, dive support, fishery patrols, boarding party operations, and the transfer of personnel and equipment. The essential maintenance and support services provided by this contract will ensure the CAF's fleet of inflatable boats remains capable of meeting current and future operational demands. This contract was awarded under the repair, refit and maintenance component of the National Shipbuilding Strategy, which provides economic opportunities for shipyards and suppliers across Canada. The contract will help create or maintain up to 23 jobs. Quotes "The Government of Canada remains firmly committed to the National Shipbuilding Strategy, and we are working hard to ensure that it continues to deliver important benefits for Canada. The strategy continues to provide meaningful opportunities for the Canadian marine industry, generating jobs and opportunities from coast to coast to coast." The Honourable Anita Anand Minister of Public Services and Procurement "The Canadian Armed Forces fleet of inflatable boats increases our reach and effectiveness during a wide range of operations at home and abroad. This contract will provide critical maintenance and support services to ensure our members remain well equipped to do the important job we ask of them, including emergency evacuations and transportation of personnel and equipment, while also investing in Canada's growing marine industry." The Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan Minister of National Defence "Canada's growing marine industry plays an important role in protecting Canadians and supporting Canadian workers. This investment, under the Government of Canada's National Shipbuilding Strategy, will help the hard-working members of the Canadian Armed Forces do their job, while also creating jobs in Delta." The Honourable Carla Qualtrough Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion Quick facts Work under this contract is expected to run from January 1, 2021, to December 31, 2023, with options to extend the contract up to three years. Work will also include tests and trials, disposal, storage, shipping and transport, as well as field maintenance and engineering support. The scope of work will be on an as-required basis, depending on the condition of the boats throughout their serviceable life. This contract will support the CAF's current fleet of inflatable rubber boats and rigid (hull) inflatable boats, the CAF's future dive boats, the Canadian Army's 12-man assault boats, and the new multi-role boats being acquired by the Royal Canadian Navy. National Defence currently operates a fleet of approximately 1,000 inflatable rubber boats and 260 rigid (hull) inflatable boats. Since the launch of the National Shipbuilding Strategy, approximately $7.95 billion in contracts has been awarded under the repair, refit and maintenance pillar of the strategy.
