Kratos receives Australian DoD trainer update order
Kratos Defense & Security Solutions has received a contract from the Australia Department of Defence to deliver hardware, software and technical data package upgrades for its Kratos Maintenance Blended Reconfigurable Aviation Trainers (MBRATs) and CH-47F Chinook Avionics Trainer (CAT).
The contract is worth $4.8 million.
The CH-47F CAT is a high fidelity hands-on training system that provides full-task training through simulation of all avionics sub-systems and aircraft survivability equipment in an integrated configuration within a fully immersive physical environment. The CH-47F MBRAT blends a virtual immersive environment and spatial physical awareness with established CH-47F Chinook simulation software.
The enhanced MBRAT training capabilities will enable new training tasks to be performed on the upgraded MBRAT trainers and the CH-47F CAT simultaneously.
Jose Diaz, senior vice president of Kratos Training Solutions, said: ‘As the global demand for training continues to increase, Kratos is expanding its training footprint to support the demanding and complex training requirements of the US and its allies worldwide by applying advanced technologies like those incorporated in the MBRAT and CAT.’
