CAE announced at its CAE OneWorld virtual conference and tradeshow on 8 July that BAE Systems has selected the CAE MEDALLION MR e-Series visual system for TYPHOON full-mission simulators for the Qatar Emiri Air Force.
BAE Systems is the prime contractor responsible for providing 24 TYPHOONs plus an in-service support and training package to the Qatar Emiri Air Force. CAE will provide four MEDALLION MR e-Series to BAE Systems for the Qatari simulators.
“BAE Systems did an exhaustive evaluation of the latest visual display systems available for fighter simulators [and selected] the MEDALLION MR e-Series to support the synthetic training capability for the Qatar Emiri Air Force,” commented Thibaut Trancart, Managing Director, Defence & Security – Middle East, CAE. “The exceptional realism and immersion offered by the MEDALLION MR e-Series helps deliver significant training value by allowing complex and challenging fighter aircraft tasks to be rehearsed in a safe virtual environment.”
