U.S. Navy Awards Atlantis SAITS Contract

Atlantis Systems International, (a unit of Atlantis Systems Corp, Ontario Canada) has been awarded a contract worth over $6.5 million by Boeing Integrated Defense Systems to provide Student Aircraft Interface Trainer Stations (SAITS) for the U.S. Navy's F/A-18 Visual Environment Maintenance Trainers. The SAITS will form part of a major upgrade to the trainers, giving them the flexibility to support maintenance training on the Navy's F/A-18E, as well as future versions of the aircraft.

"We are very pleased to be working with Boeing to provide an innovative, cost-effective training solution for the U.S. Navy's front-line fighter/attack aircraft," said Martyn Exon, Atlantis VP and General Manager. "This contract builds on Atlantis' successful performance on the F/A-18 Integrated Maintenance Training System (IMTS), for which Boeing is also the prime contractor. Our experience in developing advanced student interface technology for the IMTS will be of great benefit to the Navy on the SAITS project." (Atlantis was awarded the $32 million IMTS contract in 2002.)

The SAITS trainer stations will be deployed at the Lemoore Naval Air Station in California and the Oceana Naval Air Station in Virginia, and are scheduled for delivery in 2006. They will be developed by Atlantis at the Company's facility in Brampton, Ontario. Award of the SAITS contract was facilitated by the administrative and business services of the Canadian Commercial Corporation, a Canadian government Crown Corporation.
