The Helicopter Maritime Environment Trainer (HelMET) was developed by Defence R&D Canada – Toronto (DRDC Toronto) for training helicopter pilots to land on the flight deck of a Canadian Patrol Frigate (CPF) in a virtual environment. The HelMET was installed at 12 Wing, Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Shearwater, Nova Scotia, Canada [reference: Summary per document cited in next paragraph]. DRDC Toronto Document: CR2002-032 Atlantis Document: ED999-01183 titled Helicopter Maritime Environment Trainer: Data Package documented Version 1.1 of the HelMET Software. As third party support for the HelMET system did not come to fruition, DRDC Toronto has been supporting the HelMET system at 12th Wing Shearwater with hardware and software updates. The current version of HelMET is Version 4.4. Many of the updates implemented were made to allow the simulator to be used as a procedures trainer. This document is a revision of CR2002-032 updated to reflect the large number of changes that have been implemented by DRDC Toronto since version 1.1. The purpose of this document is to update the description so that the system can be maintained and operated by Director Aerospace Development Program Management, Radar and Communications Systems or its representatives.
