Indra has been awarded a contract for the development and production of a full mission simulator of the highest level of the H225M helicopter, rated EASA level D (the highest possible rating for civil aspects), for the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF). The contract includes post-delivery support and technical assistance, as well as options for future upgrades. 

  1. International leadership in simulation 

The simulator will be equipped with motion and vibration platforms. It will enable training in the helicopter's normal and emergency procedures, with special emphasis on training in all possible missions to be executed by the RSAF, such as search and rescue, aeromedical evacuation and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations, among others.

Indra's simulator will ensure safety during training by reproducing realistic operational scenarios and complex manoeuvres. It will simulate both day and night operations in all possible weather conditions. 

It will also include advanced training analysis capabilities using biometric sensors to assist instructors in assessing pilots and incorporating more information into reports. 

One of the most noteworthy features of this simulator is its Ro-Ro (Roll-on/Roll-off) capability, which allows the possible future helicopter cockpits to be interchanged in a single simulator, optimising the use of the system. 

International leadership in simulation 

This contract for the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) reinforces Indra's position as one of the world's leading simulator manufacturers, with more than 200 simulators delivered to over 50 customers in more than 20 countries. 

Indra is a pioneer in the incorporation of virtual reality, augmented reality and new digital technologies in simulation. It has extensive experience in the development of mission simulators for aircraft such as the Eurofighter, the Airbus A330 MRTT, the Airbus A400M, as well as Level D civil simulators such as the A330, A320, Boeing 737 or the ATR 72. It is also one of the companies that has developed simulators for the largest number of helicopters, including the NH90, Tiger, Cougar, Chinook, Blackhawk, Seahawk, AW159 Wildcat and the MH53, as well as civil models of the EC135, H135, H225, H175, AS350, H145, EC145, Bell212, Bell412 and Sikorsky S76.
