CAE opens new offices in UAE

15th March 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


CAE's Defence and Security business has expanded its operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) by opening new facilities in Abu Dhabi, the company announced on 13 March.

The new offices will house staff from CAE and its local UAE-based company CAE Maritime Middle East, which serves as the prime contractor and programme management authority for defence programmes in the country.

Currently, CAE is under contract with the UAE armed forces to design and develop a comprehensive Naval Training Centre for the UAE Navy and to develop helicopter simulators for the UAE Joint Aviation Command.

Ian Bell, CAE's vice president and general manager, Middle East/Asia-Pacific, said: 'The Gulf Cooperation Council countries, and in particular the UAE, are very innovative in their approach to training, particularly in addressing the use of simulation-based training to enhance mission readiness.

'Since the UAE has been acquiring very sophisticated and advanced weapons platforms to modernise its defence forces, they have been procuring the requisite training systems that will help ensure high levels of preparedness. CAE is honoured to have been selected by the UAE for a range of advanced training programmes, and our expansion to new offices in Abu Dhabi signals our commitment to being their long-term training partner of choice.'
