UH-60 and CH-47 Helicopter Active Controls for SGB Enterprises
A collaboration to develop agile and transportable simulators
SGB Enterprises and Stirling Dynamics have been working together since 2014 when they developed the first UH-60M Cockpit Avionics Procedural Tool, which was first showcased at the I/ITSEC (Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference) 2014 trade show. SGB Enterprises had developed their Cockpit Academics Procedural Tool-Enhanced with visual and flight control systems (CAPTE-VCS) which have proven to be a highly effective and accurate training tool for start-up, shutdown, on-ground and in-air emergency procedures.
The CAPTE-VCS system is part of the growing trend for more agile, transportable simulators. This creates a unique set of requirements for simulator flight controls, which resulted in SGB Enterprises selecting Stirling Dynamics to provide the best solution.
These requirements included a need for high fidelity replication of the aircraft control feel with linked pilot/co-pilot controls; a control set that would support their modular, fixed-base cockpit simulators without adding extra extraneous mechanical linkage; and a reliable product that could withstand tough hangar conditions and provide an easy to use COTS communications interface.
SGB Enterprises and Stirling Dynamics continue in their long-term relationship and at the end of 2016, Stirling Dynamics announced a new contract with SGB Enterprises to supply further active controls for their UH-60M and CH-47 helicopter simulators for a number of international customers.
