The U.S. Navy is re-entering an updated Sikorsky MH-60S operational flight trainer (OFT) into service at the Naval Air Station (NAS) near San Diego, Calif. CAE provided a “technology refresh” for the trainer, adding motion seats, an upgraded image generator visual system and a new Barco CD2260 visual display system. The upgrades will ensure concurrency with other MH-60S trainers and operational MH-60S helicopters.
Sikorsky’s MH-60S is designed to perform vertical replenishment (VERTREP), combat search and rescue (CSAR), special warfare support and airborne mine countermeasures (AMCM) missions.
