The German MSC, which involves Bundeswehr personnel, is part of Airbus Helicopters’ strong cooperation with Germany’s Armed Forces. Integrated military personnel (from sergeant to staff officer) are deployed as technicians, inspectors and engineers.
Also among its cooperative projects are the NH90/Tiger Systems Support Center in Donauwörth, Germany and the NH90/Tiger cooperative aircraft engineering operation, which is also located in Donauwörth. These two units ensure the reliable, economical and continuous operation of technologically advanced products through services tailored for specific mission requirements.
The NH90/Tiger Systems Support Center concentrates expertise and maximizes cost efficiencies to ensure Airbus Helicopters and its partners are able to quickly adapt program software with changing conditions and requirements.
In Donauwörth, a mobile team is responsible for technical and logistics support, analysis and troubleshooting, as well as maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) activities as part of the NH90/Tiger cooperative aircraft engineering operation. This team also provides maintenance training for soldiers on UH-Tiger and NH90 airframes.
A few examples of MSC operations:
- CH53 GA retrofit
- Tiger UHT ASGARD upgrade
- NH90 Forward Air Medevac modification
- SeaKing Mk41 and SeaLynx Mk88A modernization
