Typhoon Flight Simulators Improve Weapon System Training



November 10, 2013. David Pugliese - Defence Watch


News release from BAE:


Up to the minute weapon system simulation software is being loaded onto the Typhoon flight simulators at RAF Leuchars, allowing pilots to experience ‘flight missions’ even before the aircraft arrive at the base.


At the heart of this improved training environment is an accurate, fully qualified simulation of the Typhoon weapon system, developed by a team of our engineers based our facility in Warton, Lancashire.


Thanks to its flexible and scalable design, the simulation can be plugged into a wide range of training systems from desktop devices to full dome cockpits.


Two simulators are in use at RAF Leuchars and each is loaded with the latest standard of software to provide concurrent training for the RAF’s Typhoon pilots.


With the upgrades formally accepted by the RAF, Air Commodore Keith Bethell, Head of the DE&S Fast Air Support Team said: “I am very encouraged by the capability being developed by BAE Systems which has now been delivered into service at RAF Leuchars. I am hopeful that this capability will be a significant contributor to the development and sustainment of our military capability in the coming years.”


Alan Murdoch, who led our efforts to deliver this enhanced training capability said: “Typhoon continues to evolve over time and with that comes a constant flow of new capability. The development work we are doing in simulation is key to unlocking these enhancements by getting new capability into the hands of the customer when it is needed. Our innovative approach to simulation offers real benefits to current and future customers.”

CAE has been awarded a series of contracts for the delivery of support services and upgrade of the simulators of multiple armed forces.


Valued at a combined C$90m ($87.2m), the contracts cover provision of C-130 training support services to the US and Taiwan air forces, maintenance services for the German Armed Force's flight simulators and modernisation of the US Navy's MH-60S helicopter trainers.


CAE Military Products, Training and Services Group president Gene Colabatistto said the company's large installed base of simulators and training devices serves as a steady source of orders for ongoing sustainment, maintenance and support services worldwide.


"We are also seeing increased opportunities for simulator upgrades and updates as defence forces look for ways to increase the amount of training done in a synthetic environment," Colabatistto added.


As part of the first contract, the company will deliver maintenance, logistics and engineering support services in support of the USAF's C-130J Maintenance and Aircrew Training System and the C-130 Aircrew Training System.


The contract also requires the supply of maintenance and support services for the C-130H training devices that are currently used by the Taiwan Air Force.


An annual contract modification by the German Armed Forces includes provision of on-site maintenance for their flight simulators for fighter, transport aircraft and helicopters in the next year.


As part of the third contract, the company will overhaul the US Navy's MH-60S operational flight trainers and weapons tactics trainers to improve training system fidelity and also maintain concurrency with current aircraft upgrades.


Tasks include updating the aircraft operational programme and aerodynamics model, besides incorporation of updates related to weapons and airborne mine counter measures.


CAE is also set to deliver comprehensive in-service support services, including systems engineering and data management to an unidentified military customer.
