Upgraded MH-60S OFT For US Navy Re-Enters Service At NAS North Island

Upgraded MH-60S OFT For US Navy Re-Enters Service At NAS North Island

Technology Refresh Completed By CAE. The United States Navy has declared an updated MH-60S "Sierra" operational flight trainer (OFT) as ready-for-training at Naval Air Station (NAS) North Island near San Diego, California.

This MH-60S OFT, originally manufactured by Lockheed Martin, was completely upgraded by CAE to add new technologies and ensure concurrency with other MH-60S training devices as well as the operational MH-60S helicopters.

"We were able to complete this major technology refresh on the original MH-60S operational flight trainer on-schedule while working closely with the Navy to ensure minimal training downtime," said John Lenyo, President and General Manager, CAE USA. "CAE is very proud of the partnership we have established with the Navy on both the MH-60S and MH-60R training programs, and will continue to leverage our experience and world-class simulation technologies to help the Navy lower risk, reduce costs and most importantly, prepare helicopter aircrews for mission success."

The technology refresh and updates to the fixed-based MH-60S OFT included the addition of motion seats, upgraded image generator visual system, and a new Barco CD2260 visual display system. CAE also performed significant engineering updates to re-architect the hardware and software computing designs to bring this MH-60S OFT to a common architecture with the Navy's suite of CAE-built MH-60S training devices.
