CAE USA Inc. has chosen IFAD TS as preferred subcontractor for COMS (In-country Contractor Operation and Maintenance Services) on a ten-year contract. As part of the contract CAE will furnish education and training to enable IFAD to familiarize itself with a Danish configured flight simulator.
In addition, CAE USA Inc. in a separate contract has provided a Link-16 solution and technology transfer to IFAD.
Both contracts are part of the first phase of Team Seahawk’s industrial cooperation projects in Denmark approved by the Danish Business Authority (DBA).
“The U.S. Navy and the companies that make up the Team Seahawk have taken offset obligations and the development of Danish industry very seriously,” says IFAD TS A/S President and CEO Benny Graff Mortensen.
“The partnership with CAE USA represents a solid, long-term business opportunity to IFAD where we will be given the opportunity to work with one of the world’s leading simulation and training companies”.
IFAD, and CAE USA are also cooperating on IFAD’s simulation product INTS (IFAD Naval Tactical Solution), including extending IFAD’s product with further functionality and integrate it into the Seahawk simulator. This arrangement opens up new markets for IFAD’s naval simulation products.
“We are excited about the partnership with CAE USA Inc. as they provide key simulation technology that will be beneficial to Danish Defense”, says Benny Graff Mortensen. “The partnership with CAE USA is a major step forward in our strategy to become a leading provider of simulation-based military training solutions. This cooperation will help IFAD further develop its business in the defense related training segment.”
