Rear Crew Mission Trainer
Rear Crew Mission Trainer (RCMT)

The RCMT is a fully immersive virtual training device for mission-specific rear-crew training. The enhanced training capabilities increase readiness in helicopter crews, provides varying environmental scenarios and can be configured to replicate any time of day or night.


The RCMT prepares trainees for all procedural aspects of rear-crew tasks and skill sets. Trainees can work with a variety of procedures such as fast roping, hoist and defense operations, virtual replenishment, search and rescue (SAR) and hoisting for survival. Simulation covers training in all terrain types including sea, coast, cliff face and heavily wooded areas.

Key Training Outcome: multi-user interactive crew development across multiple mission capabilities to include door/ramp aerial gunnery, dynamic hoist/winch operation and slung load management in operational and emergency scenarios.

The RCMT provides crews with the ability to practice:

  • Crew communication
  • Weapon handling
  • Prioritization
  • Rescue hoisting
  • External load operations and conning
  • Configurable to any fuselage type
  • Basic and advanced training for all levels of crew readiness
