AVCATT (Aviation Combined Arms Tactical Trainer) is a mobile aviation training simulator developed by L-3 Communications, Link Simulation & Training for the United States Army.

Mission: The AVCATT is an Army aviation training system for Active, Reserve and Army National Guard components. AVCATT supports unit collective and combined arms training for the AH-64, UH-60, CH-47 and OH-58 aircraft. Other AVCATT modules, such as the Non-Rated Crewmember Manned Module ((NCM3), a sub-system of AVCATT), can be linked to this basic configuration, when and where needed, to support specific unit training requirements. The NCM3 supports the training of non-rated crew members in crew coordination, flight, aerial gunnery, hoist and slingload-related tasks.

DESCRIPTION: AVCATT is a mobile, transportable, multi-station virtual simulation device that supports unit collective and combined arms training for helicopter aircrews. The AVCATT is composed of two trailers per suite with six reconfigurable modules for Apache Longbow, Chinook, Kiowa Warrior and Black Hawk. The NCM3 introduces a third trailer containing two reconfigurable modules for the Chinook and Black Hawk. Both the AVCATT and NCM3 use Helmet Mounted Displays (HMD) for out-the-window scenes.
