Description: Wildcat has been developed to meet the twin requirements for a dedicated small helicopter for deployment in the Maritime (Surface Combatant Maritime Rotorcraft (SCMR)), Littoral and Land environments (Battlefield Reconnaissance Helicopter (BRH)). The programme is procuring the necessary aircraft to field and support the capability and the capital equipment to support the training service (primarily simulators, training facility and courseware). The remainder of the through life training and support services required are being provided through the related Wildcat Integrated Support and Training (WIST) contract let 26 Jan 2012.

Start date: 2001-12-01
End date: 2016-05-31
Schedule text: The Army (BRH) Initial Operating Capability (IOC) was declared in August 2014, within planned timescale. The Flight Simulators reached a limited standard to support early training and extraordinary management action continues to be applied to build incrementally to the full training system. The revised Mission Support System is due to start implementation in early 2015. An additional maintenance contract has been let and aircraft availability has significantly improved and is no longer impacting aircrew training. The Navy (SCMR) IOC remains within its Time, Cost and Performance approval and is independent of the Future Anti-Surface Guided Weapon (FASGW) Programme.
