Selex Galileo announces new simulation contracts

26th November 2012 - 13:19 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


A number of new contracts have been issued to Selex Galileo worth a combined €8 million, according to a 23 November company statement. The contracts, issued by Italian and international export customers, were not detailed by the company, but include providing simulation systems designed to train the pilots and mission operators of fixed and rotary-wing aircraft.

Selex Galileo provides training systems for programmes such as the Eurofighter Typhoon, Tornado and M-346 to its customer base. For the Eurofighter Typhoon programme the company plays an important role in providing the Aircrew Synthetic Training Aids (ASTA) system and, for the M346, Selex Galileo is responsible for the construction and logistical support of parts of the Full Mission Simulator (FMS) including the Instructor Operating Station (IOS).

Gianfranco Terrando, SVP of Air Systems, UAS and Simulation, said: ‘We are confident that this experience will allow us to continue to develop our business relating to Typhoon training and will put us in good stead to play a leading role in new programmes and with new platforms.

‘The simulation business is dominated by big players, but we believe that our expertise in sensors and mission systems, high level of technological innovation and closeness with our customers will allow us to compete strongly in the market by delivering highly customised solutions that meet customer requirements in terms of capability, performance and cost.’
