Innovation is in our DNA

At CAE, our technological leadership is underpinned by our strong innovation culture, longstanding commitment to R&D and sustainability mindset. 

Our advanced technologies and products emerge out of our deep-rooted R&D and innovation ecosystem and processes.

Our annual Innovation Challenges initiative is part of this ecosystem. It leverages employees’ creativity to spark winning ideas that often evolve into concrete improvements and new products.

Our customers are our partners

With 75 years of breakthrough innovations, our R&D has paved the way for leading-edge flight simulators, training systems integration (TSI) solutions and high-fidelity patient simulators. Our partnerships with industry organizations, regulatory bodies, suppliers and customers help us remain at the forefront of new safety, operating efficiency and environmental standards and processes.

Designing for safety and the environment

Our Global Engineering department designs our simulator technologies and training materials to improve resource efficiency, eliminate hazardous materials and increase our customers’ energy efficiency. We follow numerous standards throughout the life-cycle of our products, from the design and manufacturing stages to the end-of-life phase. 

Paying tribute to our inventors

We operate in an industry where securing intellectual property (IP) is vital to protecting our innovations in an increasingly competitive market. Our interactive Patent Wall at our Montreal head office showcases our inventors over the past seven decades and underscores the pivotal role innovation plays at CAE.  Our Patent Wall is a testament to our employees’ ingenuity, determination and passion.
