CAE has commenced the provision of maintenance and support services on the New Zealand Defence Force's (NZDF) SH-2G(I) helicopter synthetic training devices.

The company announced at the New Zealand Defence Industry Association (NZDIA) annual forum Tuesday that the NZDF recently re-commissioned a SH-2G(I) Full-Mission Flight Simulator (FMFS), which was acquired as part of the acquisition of ten SH-2G(I) helicopters.

Over the past year, CAE installed the SH-2G (I) FMFS as well as six SH-2G(I) part-task trainers at Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) Base Auckland.

CAE New Zealand Pty Ltd, with initial assistance from its subcontractor Beca Applied Technologies Ltd, will provide on-site maintenance and support services for the next 15 years.

"Our CAE New Zealand team is committed to providing world-class maintenance services that will help ensure the availability of the SH-2G(I) training devices that support the NZDF's training program," said Peter Redman, Vice President and General Manager, CAE Asia/Pacific, Defence & Security.

"We look forward to a long-term partnership that will contribute to the safety and readiness of the NZDF's SH-2G(I) helicopter aircrews." Redman added.

Over the next year, CAE will also perform major updates to the SH-2G(I) FMFS, including updates to the host computer, sensor systems, tactical environment simulation software, and the instructor operator station. The SH-2G(I) FMFS will also be upgraded using the latest-generation CAE Medallion-6000 image generator and Common Database (CDB) architecture.
