Today, defence forces around the world are using specialized, highly complex helicopters for an array of missions, including attack, tactical support, troop transport, search and rescue, reconnaissance, anti-submarine warfare and more.
Simulating rotary wing aircraft and designing a training program to meet training objectives is a major challenge. Helicopters maintain some unique characteristics in areas such as aerodynamics and vibration that make high-fidelity simulation a difficult task. The varied operational uses of the helicopter combined with specialized technical challenges place unique demands on helicopter simulation and training.
CAE is uniquely qualified to handle all the helicopter simulation, training and mission rehearsal needs for today’s defence forces. From entry-level training devices to the networking of advanced multi-mission helicopter simulators operating in an interactive threat environment, we’ve earned our reputation as the leader in helicopter simulation. CAE offers an unequaled breadth of experience, expertise, and technology leadership in helicopter simulation, training and mission rehearsal. In fact, no other company has designed training systems for a greater variety of rotary wing platforms, such as the NH90, CH-47, MH-60S/R, AW101, AW139, AH-64 and many others.
