Abstract:

This draft specification covers the requirement for the design and fabrication of Device 2B40, the Advanced Attack Helicopter AAH Flight and Weapons Simulator FWS. The training device will consist of a pilot trainer and a copilot-gunner CPG trainer. The trainer will be used for either pilot or CPG training, or used in an integrated mode for simultaneous pilot and CPG training. The trainer will include a trainee station, an instructor station, a motion system, a visual display, and a digital computation system with peripheral equipment. The principal use for Device 2B40 will be for pilot transition training, integrated crew training, and for the maintenance of contact and instrument flight proficiency in the AAH, with emphasis on combat flying skills such as nap-of-the-earth flight, and target engagement and ordinance delivery. These applications will include concern for both techniques and procedural skills. The trainees using the device will be previously rated Army helicopter pilots. Trainees will be able to perform all normal and emergency instrument and visual system. The trainer will also be used for the training of instructor pilots.
