TAMPA, Fla., March 6 (UPI) -- A UH-60 Black Hawk simulator is being designed and manufactured for the Mexican Federal Police by CAE's U.S. subsidiary.

CAE USA said the order for the full-mission simulator was received from ACADEMI, a U.S. security services company, which has been contracted to provide flight training services to Mexico by the U.S. Department of Defense Counter Narcoterrorism Program Office.

"We are pleased to be working with ACADEMI and the U.S. Department of Defense's CNTPO to develop a Black Hawk helicopter simulator that will play a key role in the training, preparation and safety of aircrews from the Mexican Federal Police," said Ray Duquette, president and general manager of CAE USA Inc.

The CAE 3000 Series UH-60 Black Hawk will be reconfigurable between the UH-60L variant and latest UH-60M variant, which features an integrated digital cockpit and flight controls, more powerful engines, and other enhancements. Among key features: the CAE True six degree-of-freedom electric motion system and high-performance vibration platform, a high-fidelity CAE Medallion-6000 visual system and a direct projection extreme field-of-view dome display system.

CAE USA said the simulator will be delivered to Mexico this year.
