CAE has won a contract to provide the United States Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) with Aeromedical Evacuation Training System on Monday.
The Aeromedical Evacuation Training System, which can be developed for a range of air mobility aircraft platforms, will provide AFRC with a realistic training environment that will be used to prepare aeromedical evacuation crews for pre-flight and emergency procedures as well as in-flight patient care.
The system includes a C-130 fuselage trainer equipped with CAE Healthcare’s iStan robotic technology, which simulates the cardiovascular, neurological and respiratory systems of potential human patients. iStan works on blood pressure, heart rate and other clinical signs to help patients respond to treatment with minimal input from an instructor.
The system can be used on different air mobility aircraft platforms to train aeromedical evacuation crew on pre-flight and in-flight emergency and patient care procedures, CAE said.
CAE stated that it will also provide courseware, curriculum and a tablet instructor/operator station as part of the package.
