Leidos Partners With CAE to Provide US Army Bombardier Global Aircraft Training

Leidos has selected CAE Defense & Security as a subcontractor to support U.S. Army aviator training on the Bombardier Global 6000 and 6500 business jets under a potential five-year, $1.5 billion Sentinel task order awarded to Leidos by the Department of Defense.

The Bombardier Global 6000 and 6500 were selected as new manned aerial intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance platforms. 

As a subcontractor, CAE will supply a 7000XR full-flight simulator to support the High Accuracy Detection and Exploitation System. The simulator, to be delivered to the Dothan Training Center, is expected to enable training that meets the requirements of the Army G-2 ISR Task Force and the Intelligence and Security Command to ensure aviators can provide timely, relevant and accurate intelligence to tactical, operational and strategic commanders, CAE said.

The 7000XR features the CAE Tropos 6000XR visual image generator and the Upset Prevention Recovery Training, which the European Union Aviation Safety Agency and the Federal Aviation Administration require for pilots. 

Daniel Gelston, president of CAE Defense & Security, said his company is a Bombardier Global 6500 authorized training provider, putting it in a unique position to meet the U.S. Army’s training requirements.
