ST. HUBERT, Quebec, Canada. Fight-simulator manufacturer CAE has launched its CAE 700MR Series flight-training device (FTD), a next-generation FTD designed specifically for military helicopter flight and mission training.
The newly introduced FTD is an immersive and realistic and cost-effective simulator for military helicopter flight and mission training that comes on a fixed-base platform with dynamic seat for vibration and motion cueing.
Features included in the FTD are wide field-of-view visual system (240 degrees horizontal by 88 degrees vertical in standard configuration) with CAE Medallion-6000XR image generator, computer-generated forces software for generation of a realistic tactical synthetic environment, simulation architecture designed for distributed mission operations and integrated live-virtual-constructive (iLVC) training to facilitate networking and interoperability, support for military-specific mission training scenarios, space behind the cockpit to support rear-crew training if needed, and advanced instructor operator station with scenario development and editing capabilities.
The CAE 700MR Series FTD is designed to meet or exceed global accreditation standards for helicopter flight simulation training devices, including Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) FTD Level 7 and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Type IV.
