Kratos Defense & Security Solutions has won a $35 million contract to supply MH-60 training devices to US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).

The contract will see Kratos provide four MH-60R Naval Aircrew Training Systems (NATS) and four MH-60S Aircrew Virtual Environment Trainer (AVET) devices over the next five years.

The equipment will be used to provide a blend of virtual and physical environments for training aircrew members of the MH-60 platform. Aircrew members will be trained in crew coordination, gunnery training, sonar, hoist, search and rescue, and vertical replenishment to include external operations.

Jose Diaz, senior vice president of training solutions, Kratos, was quoted as saying by Shephard, ‘We are pleased to continue the advancement of highly critical aircrew training requirements with the latest deployment of these high fidelity, immersive training devices. As a principle provider of air crew training, Kratos is committed to providing these devices and enhancing the training and survivability of aircrew members for the MH-60 platforms.’

The contract follows the recent award of a MEDEVAC Crew Training system contract that will see the company develop UH-60 Black Hawk MEDEVAC air crew training systems for the US Army. This will see Kratos provide multiple simulated full-fidelity simulators to train flight medic students in the operations of all on-board systems.
