    CAE's systems engineering team applies rigorous human systems integration methodologies to research and development (R&D), acquisition, capability management, and technology programs in the design of new systems and capabilities to optimize and enhance performance. CAE provides user-centered analysis, design, experimentation, and end-to-end solutions to address the growing challenge of how well humans can learn, use, and exploit technological advances.

    CAE performs engineering in accordance with MIL-STD-15288, ISO-9001, AS9100 and other quality standards, and is compliant with Technical Airworthiness standards. CAE is one of the only companies within Canada to have successfully attained and maintained its accreditation for CMMI level 5 since 2012. CAE utilizes standardize engineering case tools that employ modelling paradigms such as Systems Model Language (SysML) and Unified Modelling Languages (UML).

    In Canada, CAE has been delivering command and control system integration to the Royal Canadian Navy for the Halifax Class Modernization program. For the same program, CAE has also been providing systems engineering and integration through the design, development and implementation phases.
