Innovative Tactical Training Solutions, builders of the H60 Casevac simulator have introduced a new Little Bird Extrication Scenario Trainer. It is a portable and reusable MH-6 size helo cabin for multi-purpose extrication exercises. I also see where it could be used for static load training if planks are installed. The model seen here does not include planks.


The trainer is designed to be used with the ITTS TOMManikin and Android based Sensory Control Unit. The front compartment can be used as a trap for the TOMManikin and features extractable doors. The SCU can be used to control noise and a fog unit to introduce a little chaos into the scenario. Additionally, ITTS has integrated a remote camera into the design to allow evaluators access to the action. An on-board generator allows for use in remote locations and facilitates quick scenario reset.

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

The Innovative Tactical Training Solutions HH-60 CASEVAC Training Simulator is an accurate representation of an H-60 cabin that offers accurate crew positions including realistic crew securing landmarks, allowing securing of patients as well as aircraft lighting (white, green/ blue).


It provides the capability to train appropriate personnel on the proper methods of administering medical aid to occupants from the interior of a structure within the parameters of a training exercise in multiple conditions and can even be set up to simulate an H-60 crash.


The remote PC controlled unit, with a custom designed interface allows for an increase/decrease in the level of stress on the trainee via the control of environmental factors, including light, noise, wind (fans), water, smoke (foggers), and other specialized components. Factors can also be controlled manually via the Sensory Control Unit (SCU) which comes with the simulator and is seen above.

The HH-60 CASEVAC Training Simulator is available for unit and agency purchase through ADS Inc.

Tactical Operations Manikin

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

As of late, there as been a lot of push back on live tissue training. The Tactical Operations Manikin (T.O.M. Man) from Innovative Tactical Training Solutions may be just the solution.

T.O.M. Man is a rugged patient care simulator capable of repeatedly surviving tactical trauma training and is designed to move like a human and simulates massive bleeding in a combat environment. Features include remote control allowing the instructor to add surprise elements, talking, breathing, bleeding, breath sounds include sucking chest wounds, respiratory distress, massive bleeding, needle decompression, tourniquet, wound packing, surgical airway. Breathing is controlled by recovery position for Care Under Fire. Several areas of massive and minor bleeding throughout the main arteries and face are managed via a single controller that provides a number of features to support TAC Med and TCCC training with “live responses”.

ITTS is an innovative company run by a former USAF PJ. They teamed up with Techline Trauma to develop the T.O.M. Man and one of the best things about this product is that it can be customized for your particular needs. In fact, it weighs between 130-150 lbs which goes a long way to mimicking a human’s size and weight which means T.O.M. Man can support a wide variety of training.
