The US Navy has awarded a contract to Boeing and Bell Helicopter to jointly upgrade the CV-22 cabin part task trainer (CPTT).

Under the contract, Boeing and Bell will upgrade the CV-22 CPTT with modifications including an aircrew flight simulation (AFS) that deploys a fused reality system, which combines video images with virtual reality.

The upgraded AFS will allow the pilot to view both the interior cabin environment and the simulated outside world by integrating virtual and real scenarios in an image processor.

Boeing training systems and services vice-president Mark McGraw said the modification enables the pilots to train on real-time cargo air drops, parachute drops and emergencies, including wing fires, hydraulic leaks and engine smoke.
