CAE today announced it received an order from ADS, Inc. on behalf of the U.S. Air Force through the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Tailored Logistics Support (TLS) program to provide the U.S. Air Force at Dobbins Air Reserve Base (ARB) with another Aeromedical Evacuation Training System.

CAE will provide a high-fidelity fuselage trainer representing both the C-17 transport and KC-135 tanker that can be used and configured for aeromedical evacuation missions. The fuselage trainer will include a motion system to replicate the vibrations and turbulence often encsalesountered during flight, thus delivering a more immersive and realistic aeromedical training environment. Within the C-17/KC-135 fuselage trainer will be medical patient simulators provided by CAE Healthcare. The overall C-17/KC-135 Aeromedical Evacuation Training System provided by CAE will include courseware and curriculum, and following delivery CAE Healthcare will provide training support services and instruction.

"We are pleased to once again be working with ADS to provide the Air Force with another Aeromedical Evacuation Training System," said Ray Duquette, President and General Manager, CAE USA. "The combination of our experience providing training solutions for air mobility platforms and CAE Healthcare's world-class medical patient simulators demonstrates the unique training systems integration capabilities that CAE can deliver."

The C-17/KC-135 Aeromedical Evacuation Training System will be delivered in early 2017 and is the second aeromedical training solution to be developed by CAE. The company will soon deliver a C-130 Aeromedical Evacuation Training System to the U.S. Air Force at Dobbins ARB.

"This is an exciting collaborative effort with a long-term partner, and an example of the level of turnkey solutions that CAE can provide," said Dr. Robert Amyot, President of CAE Healthcare. "We will deliver not only patient simulators, specialized curriculum and instructional support, but also a highly realistic training environment."

Before delivery of the C-130 Aeromedical Evacuation Training System to Dobbins ARB in January 2016, CAE will be demonstrating it at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) to be held in Orlando, Florida from November 30 to December 3, 2015. The demonstration at I/ITSEC will feature the C-130 fuselage trainer equipped for the aeromedical mission along with medical patient simulators from CAE Healthcare, including iStan, Lucina and Caesar. I/ITSEC is the world's largest event dedicated to military simulation and training.

CAE's Aeromedical Evacuation Training Systems can be developed for a range of air mobility aircraft platforms. The comprehensive, integrated training system provides a realistic training environment that can be used to prepare aeromedical evacuation crews for pre-flight and emergency procedures as well as in-flight patient care.
