CAE awarded contracts by Chinese and Russian customers valued at more than C$50 million for four full-flight simulators

- Includes first simulators for new COMAC C919 aircraft

MONTREAL, CANADA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- (TSX:CAE)(NYSE:CAE) - CAE today announced that it has sold four Level D full-flight simulators (FFS), two each to customers in China and Russia. The sales include the first two FFSs, associated training devices and the CAE Augmented Engineering Environment (AEE) for the new C919 aircraft being developed by Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC). They also include two simulators, a Boeing 737NG and a Bombardier CRJ200, to Russian aviation equipment company NITA (New Information Technologies in Aviation). In addition, CAE sold simulator update services to various customers.

The contracts are valued at more than C$50 million at list prices and bring the total FFS sales that CAE has announced to date during fiscal year 2013 to 23.

"We have a long history of cooperation with COMAC's Shanghai Aircraft Customer Services Co. (SACSC) Ltd. starting with the development of the first ARJ 21 full-flight simulators, and we are honored that SACSC has once again selected us for the development of the world's first C919 simulators," said Jeff Roberts, CAE's Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "We are also proud to continue to extend our reach into Eastern Europe and to have been selected once again by Russian aviation equipment company NITA on behalf of the Ministry of Transport of Russia."

COMAC

The two C919 CAE 7000 Series FFSs will incorporate the new third-generation CAE Tropos(TM)-6000 visual system. They will be ready for use at SACSC in 2015, prior to the aircraft's expected entry into service. In addition, CAE will provide two Level 5 Flight and Maintenance Training Devices (FMTDs).

The C919 FFS program will also use the CAE Augmented Engineering Environment (AEE), a modeling and simulation environment that will allow SACSC and CAE to efficiently develop, evaluate, test, and validate a range of aircraft models and systems during the development phase of the simulators and aircraft program.

CAE has designed, developed and delivered the industry's first full-flight simulators for more than 40 new aircraft representing 16 different original equipment manufacturers, including the first simulator for COMAC's ARJ21 advanced regional jet.

NITA

The Boeing 737NG FFS for NITA will be deployed in 2013 to the Ulyanovsk Higher Civil Aviation School in Ulyanovsk, Russia, where CAE delivered earlier this year an Airbus A320 FFS. The CRJ200 FFS will be deployed to the Saint-Petersburg State University of Civil Aviation in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, also in 2013. NITA is acquiring the simulators on behalf of the Federal Air Transport Agency, part of the Ministry of Transport of Russia.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
