TYSONS CORNER, VA, February 1, 2019 — CAE (NYSE: CAE) will work with General Atomics on a project to provide the U.K. air force a platform designed to train Protector RG Mk1 remotely piloted aircraft operators, ExecutiveBiz reported Jan. 24.
General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. awarded a contract to CAE to build a synthetic training system with brief/debrief and scenario generation stations as well as mission trainers that simulate the former’s certifiable ground control station for the MQ-9B SkyGuardian‘s U.K. variant, CAE said Jan. 24.
“Protector will offer a new level of capability in an unmanned air system and will require well-trained aircrews,” said Gene Colabatistto, president of CAE’s defense and security group.
Colabatistto, a past Wash100 awardee, noted that the company will build on its previous experience with the Predator training program to deliver the Protector training platform.
