CAE's Marine Division Signs $19M in Deals

Wednesday, August 04, 2004
CAE signed new contracts to provide integrated bridge systems (IBSs) for the United Arab Emirates' Baynunah-class corvettes, and a land-based test facility for the German navy's F-124-class frigates.

CAE also signed a contract amendment for the Indian navy's landing ship program and finalized the contract for the German navy's K130 corvette program. In total, the new agreements and contract amendment are worth about C$19 million, with an option of C$4 million for two additional Baynunah corvette IBSs.

The new contract with the German navy calls for CAE to provide an F-124 land-based test facility to support CAE's integrated machinery control system (IMCS) already aboard the navy's new F-124 class frigates.

The F-124 IMCS is a comprehensive platform management system with advanced features, such as an on-board training system, battle damage control system, and an integrated controller for the gas turbine engine.

CAE has concluded the contract with the ARGE K130 consortium (consisting of three shipyards: Blohm+Voss, Nordseewerke, and Friedrich Lürssen Werft) for the supply of IMCS with increased scope for five K130 corvettes, and a contract amendment for the control system for the Indian navy's landing ships.
