CAE confirms order for Typhoon simulator visual system

9th July 2020 - 10:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The CAE Medallion MR e-Series visual system will be included in Eurofighter Typhoon full-mission simulators for the Qatar Emiri Air Force.

In an announcement on 8 July at its CAE OneWorld virtual event, the company noted that it will provide ‘four Medallion MR e-Series to BAE Systems for the Qatar Eurofighter Typhoon simulators under contracts awarded during CAE’s fiscal year 2020 third and fourth quarters’.

Thibault Trancart, CAE Managing Director, Defence & Security — Middle East said that the decision was made by BAE Systems after ‘an exhaustive evaluation of the latest visual display systems available for fighter simulators’.

He cited the ‘exceptional realism and immersion offered by the Medallion MR e-Series’ as key advantages that help to deliver ‘significant training value by allowing complex and challenging fighter aircraft tasks to be rehearsed in a safe virtual environment’.

Shephard reported in June that CAE is also primed to provide CAE Medallion MR e-Series units to the UK RAF for its Typhoon simulators.
