CAE on Tuesday announced a series of military contract awards, totaling $120 million.

The contracts include one from the U.S. Navy to develop two MH-60R helicopter simulators, a contract from Boeing to design and manufacture training devices as part of the C-130 Avionics Modernization Program (AMP) for the U.S. Air Force and a contract from Professional Way in Malaysia to build a CAE 3000 Series AW139 full-flight simulator.

The U.S. Navy has exercised contract options for CAE USA to design and manufacture two additional MH-60R tactical operational flight trainers. The first simulator will be a fixed-based MH-60R TOFT delivered to Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville, Fla., in 2013. The other MH-60R will also be a fixed-based simulator delivered to the Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) at Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, in 2013.

Additionally, CAE will design and manufacture a new C-130 AMP weapon systems trainer (WST) and produce a second C-130 AMP avionics part task trainer (APTT) for the U.S. Air Force. The training devices will be delivered to the C-130 Aircrew Training System at Little Rock Air Force Base in 2014.

Finally, Professional Way Sdn Bhd, a Malaysia-based company, has purchased a CAE 3000 Series full-flight simulator (FFS) replicating the AW139 aircraft. The simulator will be deployed to a new training center near Kuala Lumpur’s Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport.
