Elbit Systems of America has won a contract to supply a number of
products – including cockpit displays, datalinks and embedded
training capabilities – to Boeing’s T-X advanced pilot training
aircraft for the United States Air Force.
“We are supremely proud to be trusted by Boeing
and the U.S. Air Force to supply these mission critical products
and vital training systems,” said Raanan Horowitz, president and
CEO of Elbit Systems of America. “Future pilots will greatly
benefit from the revolutionary flight training capabilities
featured in the T-X.”
Elbit Systems of America will provide a number
of key components including: large area displays, engine fuel
indicators, upfront control panels, and Head Up Displays and their
associated line replaceable units.
In addition, the company will
supply air and ground datalinks enabling the T-X’s onboard virtual
avionics and the Integrated Live/Virtual/Constructive capability.
All this cutting edge capability simulates the advanced avionics,
sensors and weapons utilized by 5th generation fighters like the
F-22 and F-35, enabling T-X pilots to virtually operate those
systems while flying the lower cost-to-operate T-X aircraft.
