CATI awarded a contract for enhanced rotorwash dust model

Daleville, Alabama – August 20, 2009

CATI Training Systems is awarded a contract under the JVYS support for Transportable Blackhawk Operator Station (TBOS) Instructor Operator Station (IOS) upgrade project. CATI will develop, design and integrate software with the capability to control elements of the dust model using the existing X-IG™ Image Generator in the UH-60A/L and CH-47D, Lift Simulator Modernization Program (LSMP), UH-60A/L Additional BLACK HAWK Flight Simulators (ABHFS) and the UH-60A/L Transportable BLACK HAWK Operational Simulator (T-BOS). The end result shall be a visual emulation of dust models that provide a higher level of realism and fidelity of training for the specific tasks of dust and snow landings.
