Rotorsim to Provide First NH90 Sim

By James T. McKenna | August 7, 2008

The consortium owned equally by CAE and AgustaWestland has signed contracts with the Netherlands defense ministry to provide comprehensive NH90 helicopter training systems and services.  The total value of the contracts is about €50 million (C$80 million), the companies said. As part of the Joint NH90 Training Program (JNTP), Rotorsim will have prime contractor responsibility for providing one NH90 full-mission flight trainer and an NH90 virtual sensor trainer for training rear crew sensor operators.  This will be the first NH90 full-mission flight trainer for the naval variant (NFH – NATO Frigate Helicopter) of the NH90 helicopter, which is designed primarily for anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare missions.  Following delivery of the NH90 training devices to the Rotorsim Training Centre in 2011, Rotorsim will then have a multi-year responsibility for operation and maintenance services of the NH90 training systems. Rotorsim will subcontract the trainer design and manufacture to Helicopter Training Media International, a CAE and Thales joint venture established to develop synthetic training media for the NH90 helicopter.  For related news
