The Australian Defence Force (ADF) has completed all evaluation testing of Kratos’ CH-47F Chinook Avionics Trainers (CAT), Kratos Defense & Security Solutions announced on 1 April.

The CAT is part of a $9.4 million contract by Boeing Defence Australia in support of the ADF that also includes two Kratos’ Maintenance Blended Reconfigurable Aviation Trainers (MBRATs), a spares packages and support services. The training systems are stationed at the Army Aviation Training Centre in Oakey, Queensland.

The CH-47F CAT is a high fidelity training system that provides full task training through simulation of all avionics systems and aircraft survivability equipment in an integrated configuration within a fully immersive physical environment. The CAT replicates the aircraft interior and exterior environments with a simulation of all line replaceable units along with the required test, measuring and diagnostic equipment.

The MBRAT is a reconfigurable system, which provides avionics maintenance procedures training for multiple rotorcraft platforms, including Chinook and Black Hawk.

Kratos will provide on-site and post-delivery support to both the CAT and MBRAT training systems. Both systems provide full-task and virtual training through simulation of related CH-47F Chinook avionics systems.
