Dynamic Missile System Training
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, now supports prime contractor Northrop Grumman on the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) program. The GBSD program is led by the U.S. Air Force for the purpose of developing the next generation intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) as a nuclear deterrent. Under subcontract to Northrop Grumman, we are now developing the missile systems training capabilities required at Offutt AFB, Nebraska, and Vandenberg AFB, California, for the GBSD program.
To help ensure GBSD has the best trained operators for this complex weapons system, we will develop and support operations, maintenance and security forces training. The comprehensive training solution will include a collective trainer for leadership decision making that will feature simulation of an advanced situational awareness environment. This modernized system aims to provide solid reliability while maintaining safe deterrence capabilities to respond to future threats.
