RSAF’s Upgraded CH-47 FMS Enters Service

: Feb 11, 2020 - : 4:44 pm

CAE announced at the ongoing airshow that its upgraded CH-47 Chinook helicopter Full-Mission Simulator (FDS) has now been put into service for training by the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF). The newly delivered CH-47 Chinook FMS for the RSAF was recently upgraded by CAE and is now delivering enhanced crew training to maintain a high state of mission readiness.

“The Chinook helicopter is an iconic medium-to-heavy lift helicopter and CAE has played a key role helping prepare aircrews for operating this enduring platform,” said Ian Bell, CAE’s Senior Vice President, Global Strategy & Business Development.  “Many military customers including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and the Netherlands have leveraged training systems and services from CAE to help ensure their CH-47 aircrews are ready to carry out the range of missions the Chinooks are called on to perform.”

CAE offers a wide range of customisation and upgrade services for existing operators of CH-47 FMS. These include services such as incorporation of new features for later variants of the CH-47.

Amongst the upgrades being offered include the fitment of a new avionics suite, the latest generation CAE Medallion-6000 image generator (IG) with Open Geospatial Consortium Common Database (OGC CDB) architecture, and enhanced synthetic and tactical environment simulation software.

Upgraded simulators by CAE for the CH-47 also feature a new or refurbished six-degree-of-freedom motion system and the implementation of a digital automatic flight control system.

CAE Elektronik GmbH is presently also part of a group of German aerospace companies along with Boeing to offer the CH-47 Chinook for the heavy-lift helicopter competition in Germany. The Canadian firm will develop and support a range of aircrew training systems and services should the CH-47 Chinook helicopter be selected by the Government of Germany.
