Indra awarded contract by AgustaWestland to develop simulators for the UK MoD
August 12, 2011
Indra, after being selected as a result of a competitive process, is pleased to announce their partnership with AgustaWestland for the design and development of the Aircrew Training Equipment (ATE) the British Ministry of Defence will use to train pilots of the new AW159 Lynx Wildcat helicopter.
The devices will be operational and in service to provide training for the Army from early 2013, and for the Royal Navy form early 2014. This contract positions Indra into the UK simulation market as a reference supplier for one of their most representatives’ platforms.
Indra will provide state-of-the-art synthetic training technology including two Full Mission Simulators (FMS), a Flight Training Device (FTD) and Cockpit Procedures Trainer (CPT). All devices will be capable of delivering Army or Royal Navy conversion and mission training.
Each of the Full Mission Simulators has movement freedom and reproduces the vibrations of the aircraft during flight in order to provide the acceleration and the same feeling associated with helicopter flying. The simulators comply with the Joint Aviation Requirements (JAR-FSTD-H) standards, level D, the highest realistic training available.
Indra training devices will be installed in the Training Centre AgustaWestland has been contracted to build at RNAS Yeovilton in South West England, alongside Royal Navy and British Army AW159 Lynx Wildcat squadrons.
The AW159 is the latest twin-engine multi-role, maritime and utility aircraft developed as a replacement for the extremely successful AgustaWestland Lynx family of helicopters. Designated the Lynx Wildcat by the UK MOD, the AW159 is the multi-role helicopter chosen by the UK to meet maritime attack, surveillance and land reconnaissance requirements.
Also available to the international marketplace, the platform is equipped with a comprehensive and highly capable integrated avionics suite, which includes a state-of-the art radar for the naval variant, electro-optical imaging and electronic surveillance measures and an integrated self defence suite, among others. All these systems for navy and army applications will be simulated and integrated into the simulators to provide the most realistic training.
This contract reaffirms Indra’s position as a major supplier of helicopter simulators in the international market and strengthens its relationship with AgustaWestland, one of the main manufacturers of this type of aircraft worldwide. This contract underlines Indra’s commitment to provide the highest quality of training equipment for aircrew, thereby ensuring the best possible training to front line units needs for whatever missions they may undertake.
