Indra is developing two FMS EASA Level D NH90 GSPA helicopter simulators for the Spanish Ministry of Defence. The two simulators will both be installed at the Agoncillo helicopter base in La Rioja province in northern Spain and will be operationally connected with existing helicopter simulators at bases in Colmenar Viejo (Chinook, Cougar and H135) and Almagro (Tiger Helicopter). The simulators ordinarily operate in a fully integrated fashion and together form Europe’s most advanced military helicopter simulation centre.
The development of the FMS represents an important technological challenge for Indra because the aircraft features cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art systems. Sales of the NH90 helicopter on the international market represent a significant business opportunity for Indra within the simulation industry.
José María Tapia Hernández, Program Manager NH90 GSPA Simulators at Indra comments “The choice of the P1 projectors has been based mainly on the technological breakthrough they offer compared to other products on the market. Norxe’s ability to modify and develop functionalities in a fast way, according to the real requirements of the Simulator, has also been highly valued ”
Ivan Santafe, Head of Business Development Southern Europe comments “It has been really important and helpful for both companies to work together to further develop the P1 projector. Working closely in this way has helped Norxe to better understand the real requirements of our partner and end user and to improve the projector quickly and efficiently.”
Norxe is a Norwegian company that designs, manufactures and markets unique projectors for demanding applications.
Located in Fredrikstad, Norway. Norxe combines in-house engineering expertise in optics, mechanics, electronics and software. Projectors are built for performance and quality to provide real solid state day and night vision to exacting standards. All products are warranted for 24/7 operation without exception.
