MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwired - July 2, 2014) - (NYSE:CAE)(TSX:CAE) - CAE
today announced that it has won a series of contracts valued at approximately
C$110 million to provide a range of training systems and services for global
defence customers. These include contracts to provide the T-6C ground-based
training system and services for the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF), a
contract to upgrade the visual systems on the German Air Force's
Eurofighter simulators, a contract from Korea Aerospace Industries to provide
the visual system for a T-50IQ full-mission simulator, and a contract to
provide a KC-135 boom operator weapon systems trainer for an undisclosed
international customer. 
"We are well positioned across a range of opportunities around the world,
involving defence and security forces that increasingly recognize the benefits
of simulation-based training," said Gene Colabatistto, Group President,
Defence and Security, CAE. "CAE is a skilled and experienced training
systems integrator, and we are focused on pursuing long-term, integrated
training solutions."  
Beechcraft Defense Company/Royal New Zealand Air Force 
CAE was awarded contracts from the Beechcraft Defense Company LLC to develop
and support a comprehensive T-6C ground-based training system (GBTS) for the
Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF). The T-6C GBTS will be an integrated
training system that includes two T-6C operational flight trainers,
computer-based classroom training systems, and courseware customized for RNZAF
pilot training. CAE has established CAE New Zealand Pty Ltd to provide
long-term training support and maintenance services at RNZAF Base Ohakea. The
T-6C GBTS is part of an overall training solution Beechcraft is providing to
the RNZAF that includes 11 T-6C Texan II military trainer aircraft and 30 years
of logistics support. 
"We are pleased to be partnering with Beechcraft to deliver the Royal New
Zealand Air Force with a proven, low-risk and comprehensive integrated pilot
training solution that cost-effectively meets their current and future pilot
training requirements," said Colabatistto.  
The two CAE-built T-6C operational flight trainers (OFTs) will include a
high-fidelity replica of the T-6C cockpit with a fully-enclosed 270 degree by
70 degree field-of-view display system driven by the CAE Medallion-6000 image
generator. The T-6C OFT will also feature the CAE-developed common database
(CDB), an open database architecture that enhances the ability to correlate and
rapidly update databases to support training and mission rehearsal
requirements. The comprehensive T-6C GBTS will be delivered to RNZAF Base
Ohakea in 2015 and CAE will then provide on-site training support services. 
German Air Force 
Germany's Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology
and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) has contracted CAE to replace obsolete
components and upgrade the visual systems on the German Air Force's
Eurofighter simulators. The visual system upgrade will include the addition of
CAE's latest generation CAE Medallion-6000 image generator along with new
high-resolution projectors and dome display systems for the Eurofighter
full-mission simulators and Eurofighter cockpit trainers located in Laage,
Norvenich, Wittmund and Neuburg, which are the four main Eurofighter operating
bases in Germany.  
Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) 
Korea Aerospace Industries Ltd (KAI) has contracted CAE to provide its CAE
Medallion-6000 image generator for a T-50IQ full-mission simulator that KAI is
developing for the Iraqi Air Force. In late 2013, KAI signed a contract with
the Government of Iraq to provide its T-50IQ supersonic advanced jet trainer
and light attack aircraft, including a ground-based training system. In
addition to providing the CAE Medallion-6000 image generator for the T-50IQ
full-mission simulator, CAE will provide a database modeling station and
support KAI with integration and training services. 
The CAE Medallion-6000 image generator combines a proven, industry-leading
