New Systems


This omnibus project will acquire new Weapon System Trainers for the CH149 Cormorant, CC150 Polaris, and CC177 Globemaster fleets.


Weapon System Trainers provide integrated pilot and crew simulators for initial, recurrent and upgrade aircrew training. Cockpit trainers must be certifiable to ICAO Level Seven for Fixed Wing, and Level Five for Rotary wing fleets.  The systems must also be designed with a flexible, open architecture so that they are easily upgradable to match planned and future aircraft modifications.  The requirement includes courseware and device-based lesson plans.
