Simulator development contract for Army helicopters


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
SAIC
: 12 February, 2010  (Application Story)
US Army Aircrew will develop helicopter operation skills using simulation software developed by SAIC for the CH-47 and UH-60 helicopters
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has been awarded a delivery order by the US Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) to develop the first integrated crew member simulators for CH-47 and UH-60 helicopters under the Non-rated Crew Member Manned Module (NCM3) program. The NCM3 simulators will integrate with the Army's Aviation Combined Arms Tactical Trainer (AVCATT) simulators. The contract has a 28 month base period of performance, a single option for a second variant, and a total value of more than $12 million if the option is exercised. Work will be performed primarily in Orlando, Fla. The delivery order was awarded under the second STRI (simulation, training and instrumentation) Omnibus Contract (STOC II).

PEO STRI's NCM3 program provides a collective training system to meet aviation crew member training requirements. The NCM3 is a transportable, multi-station, virtual simulation device designed to support individual, crew and collective training. Under the delivery order, SAIC will design, develop, integrate, test, deliver and maintain two mobile variants equipped with Helicopter crew member simulator modules to support gunnery and crew coordination training.

'While prototype crew member simulators have been available, the cost-effective development of full-production integrated simulators for Helicopter crew members is a first, enabling non-rated crew members to train on critical, coordinated tasks like gunnery, sling load and hoist operations with pilots,' said Beverly Seay, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. 'This delivery order expands our virtual simulation product line in aviation training, and enables us to help PEO STRI ensure that America's soldiers receive the best training possible.'
