CAE has won a contract to provide C-17/KC-135 Aeromedical Evacuation Training System to US Air Force.
The company announced Monday it has received an order on behalf of the US Air Force through the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Tailored Logistics Support (TLS) program.
CAE will provide a high-fidelity fuselage trainer representing both the C-17 transport and KC-135 tanker that can be used and configured for aeromedical evacuation missions.
The fuselage trainer will include a motion system to replicate the vibrations and turbulence often encountered during flight, thus delivering a more immersive and realistic aeromedical training environment.
The overall C-17/KC-135 Aeromedical Evacuation Training System provided by CAE will include courseware and curriculum, and following delivery CAE Healthcare will provide training support services and instruction.
The C-17/KC-135 Aeromedical Evacuation Training System will be delivered in early 2017. It is the second aeromedical training solution to be developed by CAE. The company will soon deliver a C-130 Aeromedical Evacuation Training System to the US Air Force at Dobbins ARB.
Dr. Robert Amyot, President of CAE Healthcare. "We will deliver not only patient simulators, specialized curriculum and instructional support, but also a highly realistic training environment."
CAE will be demonstrating C-130 Aeromedical Evacuation Training System at the Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) to be held in Orlando, Florida from November 30 to December 3, 2015.
The demonstration at I/ITSEC will feature the C-130 fuselage trainer equipped for the aeromedical mission along with medical patient simulators from CAE Healthcare, including iStan, Lucina and Caesar.
CAE's Aeromedical Evacuation Training Systems can be developed for a range of air mobility aircraft platforms. The comprehensive, integrated training system provides a realistic training environment that can be used to prepare aeromedical evacuation crews for pre-flight and emergency procedures as well as in-flight patient care.
