Navy contracts for MH-60S trainer support

JOHNSTOWN, Pa., Jan. 16 (UPI) -- The U.S. Navy has contracted Concurrent Technologies Corp. to provide the MH-60S training helicopter with design and installation support.

Pennsylvania-based CTC was awarded the contract from the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division in Orlando, Fla. As part of the $10 million deal, CTC will support the design and installation of the Navy MH-60S Carriage Stream, Tow, and Recovery System Trainer.


Officials say the MH-60S CSTRS-T, used by the Navy to train CSTRS winch operators on normal, emergency and degraded procedures, will be installed at the Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia.

"The Navy selected CTC to develop the CSTRS Trainer based on our experience, excellent past performance, and responsiveness to their needs during the development of the CSTRS system," Daniel Winterscheidt, CTC director of program operations, said in a statement.

"We look forward to providing the same high level of service in the future."
