Jim Evatt, president of Missile Defense Systems, a business unit of Boeing Integrated Defense Systems, said: "Boeing's presence in Canada spans many years and we believe this partnership, with such a key company as CAE, strengthens our relationship and highlights our continued commitment in Canada.This agreement also represents another important step in global cooperation that is critical for the future security of our nations, military forces and allies." Boeing Integrated Defense Systems, currently a prime contractor for the U.S. government on integrated missile defense systems, established the technical assistance agreement with CAE as an open framework for long-term cooperation.Boeing is responsible for the development and integration of the ground-based mid-course defense elements, including the ground-based interceptor, early warning radars and interfaces to the space-based infrared system satellites. CAE's STRIVE is a modeling and simulation framework that gives software developers the ability to easily design complex, interoperable systems. STRIVE will give software developers, designing a range of ballistic missile defense technology, the ability to model systems and how these systems interact and interoperate.Boeing also intends to use CAE's Interactive Tactical Environment Management System (ITEMS(TM)) and Real-Time Advanced Visualization Environment (RAVE(TM)) software tools in developing ballistic missile defense systems.
