MONTREAL, July 11 (UPI) -- CAE of Canada has recently received a series of military contracts valued at more than $119.4 million from the United States and Malaysia.

The U.S. Navy exercised contract options for CAE USA to design and manufacture two additional MH-60R tactical operational flight trainers, the company said.

The first simulator will be a fixed-based, MH-60R TOFT delivered to Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Fla., in late 2013.

The other MH-60R TOFT will also be a fixed-based simulator delivered to the Marine Corps Air Station at Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, in late 2013.

Under a subcontract to Boeing, CAE will design and manufacture a new C-130 Avionics Modernization Program weapon systems trainer and produce a second C-130 AMP avionics part task trainer for the U.S. Air Force.

Professional Way Sdn Bhd, a Malaysian company, purchased a CAE 3000 Series full-flight simulator replicating the AW139 aircraft, CAE said.

The simulator will be deployed to a new training center to be established by Professional Way near Kuala Lumpur's Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport. Professional Way will deliver AW139 simulator training for AgustaWestland's recently announced Authorized Training Center in Malaysia to serve customers in the Far East and Southeast Asian regions.

The AW139 FFS, to be delivered in late 2012, will be jointly developed by CAE and AgustaWestland.

CAE USA signed a contract with the U.S. Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation to design and manufacture five additional Abrams tank maintenance training systems, also called Abrams hands-on trainers.

The Abrams HOTs are high-fidelity replicas of the Abrams tank turret and are designed to give maintenance technicians diagnostic and hands-on training.

The Abrams HOTs will be delivered in 2013 and 2014 to Army bases in the United States, CAE said.
