The HMTS is a fully immersive virtual training device for mission specific external load hoisting operations.
Key Training Outcome: advance proficiency and readiness in crew-centric mission-relevant contexts that cannot be trained outside of live training.
The HMTS provides crews with the ability to practice:
- Advanced live cable management
- Crew communication
- Mission rehearsal
- Physics of swinging loads
- Seamless integration with variety of flight training devices
- NVG, environmental conditions
- Configurable to any fuselage type
- On-the-fly mission changes
- Basic and advanced training for all levels of crew readiness
The HMTS allows the trainee to practice mission critical skills in a safe, true-to-life environment.
Trainees practice realistic rescue and hoisting operations in challenging scenarios complete with realistic cable behaviour that responds to flight dynamics and operator inputs.
Bluedrop’s Simulation-As-A-Service (SimAAS) is a cost-effective option to provide rear crew training for multiple mission scenarios.
The SimAAS training approach reinforces learning outcomes so that skills related to situational awareness and crew interaction are delivered as simulator sessions in the Hoist Mission Training System.
This reduces the scope of training completed on the aircraft, which reduces the cost and improves the allocation of resources and provides just-in-time training option prior to a flying mission.
