Pathfinder Systems is at the site of our Netherlands Door Gunner Simulator for technology refresh and maintenance.


On Thursday, September 2, 2021, the Royal Netherlands Air Force and PSI will host a demonstration for the Royal Air Force (UK). The Door Gunner Simulator trains gunnery operations in a full-flight simulator designed and built by Pathfinder for the CH-47, Aerospatiale Cougar, and NH-90 helicopters.


Pathfinder is at the USCG Aviation Center at USCG Mobile, AL.


For the next two weeks, we are performing technology upgrades on the Coast Guard Aircrew Weapons Trainer. It was originally designed and built by Pathfinder Systems eight years ago for the USCG Armed Helicopter Squadron and remains in continuous use since then by USCG and other DoD units to train MH-60 and MH-65 aircrews for armed missions.

Pathfinder Systems has just finished delivering a hardware upgrade to the Door Gunner Simulator for the Royal Netherlands Air Force. This upgrade includes new computing hardware, updated Image Generators, and the addition of a complete After Action Review capability.


Delivered in 2014, the DGS has been continuously used by the RNLAF for high fidelity gunnery training in a wide range of scenarios, including NVG training. This simulator has undergone regular maintenance and upgrades by PSI, and we will continue to do so.
