Our Work: Training Simulators
Developing CH-53K simulator controls for NAVAIR
The customer required a replica CH-53K cockpit system for use in a development and test simulator to supplement aircraft testing. The controls needed to replicate the flightworthy controls in every way. Operating with an advanced fly-by-wire and active pilot controls the CH-53K demonstrates unique cockpit ergonomics and superior handling. NAVAIR selected Stirling to provide the best solution to replicate the active pilot controls in full form, fit and function.
The F-35 Programme and Stirling Dynamics
At Stirling, we have been closely engaged with the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Programme for many years, and our involvement dates to the 1980s with a joint US-UK study into ASTOVL (Advanced Short Take Off and Vertical Landing) aircraft. We were selected to provide the flight controller for the rear seat of the VAAC Harrier; an experimental aircraft designed by the MoD to look at active control technology for the ASTOVL programme.
UH-60 and CH-47 Helicopter Active Controls for SGB Enterprises
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 trade show.
Design and Development of a State-of-the-Art Motion Cueing System for KAI
Korea Aerospace Industries, Ltd (KAI) approached us for a state-of-the-art motion cueing system for a Full Mission Trainer simulator for their T-50 programme. The requirements of the seat were beyond any system available on the market, with a specific number of motion cues, sensed seat switches, emergency devices and performance parameters.
Replicating the flight seats for Lynx Wildcat Simulators
Indra Sistemas, the Spanish information technology and defence systems company, awarded Stirling with the contract for the design and development of six dynamic seats for the AW159 Lynx Wildcat helicopter simulators (to be supplied to Leonardo Helicopters).
