CAE to update NATO E-3A training device avionics
The avionics updates will be carried out on the E-3A flight deck simulator and E-3A flight training device located at NATO Airbase Geilenkirchen in Germany.
The company will bring the training device avionics up to date with the latest standards of the advanced Communication, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management systems currently being implemented on NATO’s fleet of 14 E-3A aircraft.
The E-3A flight deck simulator is currently qualified to Level D, the highest for flight simulators. The E-3A flight training device is qualified to Level II and is used to support familiarisation and procedural training for aircrews prior to full-mission training in the E-3A flight deck simulator.
CAE is currently responsible for maintenance and support of the E-3A training devices in addition to providing a cadre of instructors and mission system operators to support the delivery of training to NATO E-3A AWACS aircrews.
The updates to the E-3A flight deck simulator will be complete in 2021.
