Thales sees Tiger training support contract extended

17th June 2011 - 12:07 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Thales today announced that its support contract for the Tiger Aircrew Training Means (TATM) has been extended by the Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation (OCCAR (1)), representing Germany and France.

The four-year extension of the initial support contract which began in November 2006, will ensure the continued support and integrated services for the 26 Tiger helicopter simulators and associated devices located in four sites across France (Le Luc - Ecole Franco- Allemande - and Pau) and Germany (Fritzlar and Roth).

The support activities within the contract include the daily servicing of the Tiger Aircrew Training Means, ensuring that the simulators are in the appropriate training configuration, and maintaining the simulators for effective operational use by the instructors.

This support service contract aims to provide optimum flexibility for the Customer as it allows the simulators training schedule to be adapted to the associated live helicopter-training programme, which is variable according to weather conditions.

This contract, operated by Thales and its partner Rheinmetall Defence Electronics GmbH, will guarantee the operational availability of the training resources.

Pierre Segretain, Vice President Training & Simulation activities of Thales commented: “Thales has been working alongside the French and German forces for a number of years in the Tiger training capacity – the extension of this contract confirms the high standard of support services required by our customers. ”

This type of contract reflects the evolution and changes in the requirements of the Armed Forces today. More efficient support based on enhanced equipment availability and cost effectiveness are key as military customers rely on access to dependable and flexible services from industry.
