Comprehensive E-6B training and simulation
In 2021, CAE acquired L3Harris’ Military Training business, which included Link Simulation & Training and Doss Aviation. These businesses are now integrated with CAE USA as part of CAE’s Defense & Security business unit.
CAE USA, following the acquisition of the former L3 Link Simulation and Training business, is now the prime contractor for the U.S. Navy’s E-6B Aircrew Training System (ATS) program. As the sole provider of Navy E-6B aircrew and mission training, CAE USA develops and maintains all E-6B flight and maintenance crew capabilities required to support the platform’s strategic communications and airborne command post mission.
E-6B intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) solutions set the standard for realism, effectiveness, and efficiency. The E-6B aircrew training system trains approximately 1,400 E-6B aircrew and operators annually, maintaining a simulator availability rate that exceeds 99% on average.
