CAE has been awarded approximately $175.6 million in contracts from U.S. and international defense customers during the fourth quarter of its 2015 fiscal year to provide flight simulation and training platforms.

Those deals include the delivery of simulators for Lockheed Martin-built C130J Super Hercules aircraft to the U.S. Air Force and Australian air force, CAE said Wednesday.

“We offer customers the experience and expertise to help them accomplish their training objectives in the most efficient and effective manner possible, “said Gene Colabatistto, group president for defense and security at CAE and an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2015.

The company received multiple contract modifications to help the British air force update ground school training systems for the branch’s Chinook and Puma 2 helicopters.

Alenia Aermacchi subcontracted CAE to build an M-346 full-mission simulators and a part-task trainer for the Italian air force.

CAE said it also landed a four-year deal to provide maintenance and logistics services for the British Army’s Warrior infantry fighting vehicle trainers.

The company will also maintain a Lynx full-mission flight training system at a naval air station in Nordholz, Germany, through a three-year agreement with the NATO Support Agency.
