• CAE Defence and Security - CAE Canada

  • CAE is a full-service defence company established in 1947 and headquartered in Canada. We employ approximately 8,000 people worldwide - about 4,000 of which are here in Canada - at more than 160 sites and training locations in more than 35 countries.  At home, CAE focuses on two key capability areas: Training and Simulation, and Operational Systems and Support.  In the training and simulation area, CAE offers a comprehensive portfolio of products, services and training centres for the Canadian Forces. We leverage simulation expertise and operational experience to help the Canadian Forces enhance safety, improve efficiency, and maintain readiness.  In the operational systems area, CAE is truly a partner of choice delivering advanced systems integration solutions, and ongoing in-service and integrated logistics support to air, land, and naval platforms and subsystems. CAE offers international partners a unique opportunity to "Canadianize" their technologies, deliver them into Canadian programs as Canadian content, and support those solutions through life.

    We are a world-class training systems integrator offering a comprehensive portfolio of training centres, training services and simulation products across the air, land, naval and public safety market segments.  We serve our global defence and security customers through regional operations in Canada; the United States/Latin America; Europe/Middle East/Africa; and Asia/Pacific, all of which leverage the full breadth of CAE's capabilities, technologies and solutions.

    Our success abroad is directly impacted by the recognition we get in Canada as being a full-service defence company. Throughout the defence lifecycle - from research and concept analysis, system design and development, training, and ultimately to operation and in-service support - CAE Canada has experience and capabilities in each of these areas across air, land, naval, and public safety. 

    Training and Simulation Program Examples in Canada:

    CAE is the prime contractor as the Operational Training Systems Provider (OTSP) to integrate and support operational aircrew training solutions for the tactical airlift aircraft (CC-130J) and medium-to-heavy lift helicopters (CH-147). 

    CAE also delivered a comprehensive CC-130J maintenance training solution at the Air Mobility Training Centre (AMTC) in Trenton.

    CAE is currently developing a CAE 3000 Series helicopter simulator that will feature cockpits for both the Bell 412EPI and Bell 429 helicopters for the Canadian Coast Guard. The CAE 3000 Series helicopter simulator will feature CAE's revolutionary roll-on/roll-off cockpit design, which enables cockpits representing various helicopter types to be used in the full-flight simulator. The Canadian Coast Guard, which is part of Canada's Department of Fisheries and Oceans, will acquire cockpits for both the Bell 412EPI and Bell 429 helicopters, which are used by the Canadian Coast Guard for maritime security and other fisheries activities. 

    Operational Systems and Support Program Examples in Canada:

    We have a wealth of systems integration experience, such as providing electronic warfare capabilities to the Canadian Army.

    For the past 25 years, we have provided systems engineering, integrated logistics support (ILS) and data management for the CF-18 fleet. CAE has achieved the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 5 certification for its team supporting the CF-18 fleet. This is highest quality standard possible for software engineering and we are one of the few organizations in Canada to be Level 5 certified.

    We are delivering the Integrated Information Environment (IIE) for Canada's new CH-148 Cyclone maritime helicopter, which is another example of our in-service support capabilities.

    Investing in Research and Development is key to our success and benefits customers

    Innovation and technology leadership in modelling and simulation has always been critical to CAE's global success, and the company continues to make significant investments to stay at the forefront of the industry.  In partnership with our customers and employees, we seek input to help shape our investment in R&D to ensure it is in-line with the training and operational needs of our customers. This is why CAE is recognized as the benchmark in our industry to help our customers' mission critical needs for safety, cost-effectiveness, efficiency, and mission readiness.

    Investing to enhance training systems integration capabilities and further support the Canadian Forces

    Since October, 2015 CAE has been has been the prime contractor responsible for the NATO Flying Training in Canada (NFTC) program that produces qualified military pilots for defence customers. This acquisition significantly enhances CAE's core capabilities as a training systems integrator (TSI), and expands our offering into support for live flying training of future military pilots, including next-generation fighter pilots, for the Royal Canadian Air Force and its allies. The NFTC program is in operation at the Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and Cold Lake, Alberta facilities, and is designed and operated in cooperation with the Government of Canada. The program combines basic, advanced, and lead-in fighter training as part of the comprehensive pilot training program. CAE operates the NFTC base facilities, delivers the ground-school classroom and simulator training, and supports the live flying training included in this world-class turnkey training system.
