MONTREAL, June 16 (UPI) -- CAE has been awarded $111 million in contracts with the United Arab Emirates for a naval training center and helicopter training simulators, the company announced Wednesday.

The training center will offer individual, team, whole ship and joint training capabilities, CAE said, and will feature a range of integrated ship simulation-based training suites and maritime aircraft sensor stations.

This contract covers the first phase of the work but the contract could be worth up to $345 million over the next 15 years, the company said.

The training center will be ready for training by early 2019 and will be located in Taweelah, CAE said.

The second is to provide the Joint Aviation Command with a suite of helicopter simulators and training devices for the NorthStar Aviation 407 Multi-Role Helicopter and the Sikorsky UH-60M Armed Black Hawk.

The contracts were awarded by the General Headquarters of UAE's military.
