- This system will be implemented at the FAMET Simulation Center in Base Coronel Mate
- The company has already provided this unit with simulators of the Chinook, Cougar and Tiger helicopters
- Indra is one of the world leading simulation multinationals with over 200 systems implemented in 23 countries
The Arms and Materials General Board (DGAM) for the Spanish Ministry of Defense has chosen Indra to provide an integrated training system for the EC135 helicopter; this project will be worth €14.4m.
This system is comprised of the following: level D mission simulator, which reproduces aircraft flight behavior accurately; simulation support systems; and a computer-assisted trainer that will provide support to learning about helicopter systems and flight and maintenance procedures.
Global Military and Government Helicopter Market Forecast to 2023
This system will be implemented in the Spanish Ground Forces Simulation Center (CESIFAMET) at Base Coronel Maté in Colmenar Viejo (Madrid).
This training solution for EC135 will be compatible with the Chinook, Cougar and Tiger simulators previously provided by Indra. This compatibility refers to interoperability and compatible visual and tactical databases in the various simulators. In this way, FAMET pilots will be able to train together in a virtual environment and prepare for real operations.
The Spanish Ground Forces currently have 12 EC135 helicopter units, which are called HE-26 in their flight training version.
This contract strengthens Indra's collaboration with the Ground Forces. The company has already provided a Simulation Center, shared between the bases at Colmenar and Almagro, which has become a benchmark in Europe and is chosen as a training center for different allied armies.
