NEWS: CAE TO PROVIDE U.S. AIR FORCE WITH AEROMEDICAL EVACUATION TRAINING SYSTEM
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, USA, AUGUST 21, 2014: CAE HAS ANNOUNCED THAT THEY HAVE BEEN AWARDED A CONTRACT THROUGH ADS INC. AND THE DEFENSE LOGISTICS AGENCY (DLA) TAILORED LOGISTICS SUPPORT (TLS) PROGRAM TO PROVIDE THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE RESERVE COMMAND (AFRC) AT DOBBINS AIR FORCE BASE WITH A COMPREHENSIVE AEROMEDICAL EVACUATION TRAINING SYSTEM.
The Aeromedical Evacuation Training System, which can be developed for a range of air mobility aircraft platforms, will provide AFRC with a realistic training environment that will be used to prepare aeromedical evacuation crews for pre-flight and emergency procedures as well as in-flight patient care.
CAE will provide a high-fidelity C-130 fuselage trainer that is configured for aeromedical evacuation missions. Within the C-130 fuselage trainer will be CAE Healthcare iStan human patient simulators, which feature internal robotics that mimic human cardiovascular, respiratory and neurological systems. When iStan bleeds, his blood pressure, heart rate and other clinical signs change automatically, and he responds to treatment with minimal input from an instructor. The overall Aeromedical Evacuation Training System provided by CAE will include courseware and curriculum, as well as a hand-held, wireless tablet instructor operator station to provide full control and customization of a variety of training scenarios.
“We are pleased to be working with ADS, who helped the Air Force identify the best solution for their aeromedical training requirements and provided an efficient contracting solution for the procurement of CAE's Aeromedical Evacuation Training System,” said Ray Duquette, President and General Manager, CAE USA. “The comprehensive, integrated, off-the-shelf training solution we provide will enable the U.S. Air Force to more cost-effectively train both aircrews and medical personnel for critical aeromedical evacuation missions.”
