Engineering & Computer Simulations (ECS) Selected by the US Army AH-64E Apache Guardian

  • ECS Huntsville team to provide training solutions to enhance aviation maintainers’ capabilities on new fleet.

Huntsville, AL. AH-64E Apache  GuardianWaymon Armstrong, CEO/president, announced that the U.S Army Program Executive Office – Aviation (PEO Aviation) Project Manager Apache (PM Apache) office has awarded Engineering & Computer Simulations (ECS) a contract extension for additional upgrades to its aviation maintenance training and modernization programs. Jeff Huber, Vice President of Operations, Huntsville, will continue leading this project from the ECS Huntsville office.

The new scope of services includes conducting a training analysis to assist the 128th Aviation Brigade (AVN BDE), stationed at Fort Eustis, VA, to build a full AH-64E course for maintainers. The aviation training currently teaches a combined course of AH-64D and AH-64E aircraft configurations. This new training initiative is critical, as the field is close to converting its fleet of Apache aircraft from the AH-64D to the new AH-64E and will require that the field of maintainers be trained on the newer platform.

ECS has been integrating maintenance training programs for both the AH-64D Apache Longbow, the U.S. Army’s heavy division/corps attack helicopter, and the AH-64E Apache Guardian, also an attack helicopter, since 2018. These programs have been implemented by the ECS subject matter experts (SMEs) and instructional systems designers (ISDs) through the development of courseware that covered both airframes. SMEs and ISDs will develop a Total Task Inventory List (TTIL) and Critical Task list over a 9-month period to deliver additional training on the AH-64E.

Armstrong states: “We are proud to continue this partnership with the U.S. Army to deliver the necessary advancements to the PM Apache programs and coursework. ECS has been delivering innovative training solutions to military aviators and maintainers since 1997. As subject matter experts in aviation, Jeff and the entire Huntsville team are extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to their mission; they truly understand the challenges that aviation teams face as they serve our country.”
