Terma has received a contract to supply its Aircraft Audio Management System (AAMS) for the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) F-16 aircraft, the company announced on 7 February.

The AAMS will be installed on a total of 45 F-16A (single seat) and one F-16B (dual seat) aircraft.

The system provides enhancement of the pilot’s situational awareness, survivability, and workload reduction by presenting audio warnings/cues and radio messages in a full 360 degree spherical representation. This allows the pilot to get updated warning tone/cue in the real direction of the threat and spatially separated radio communication for increased speech intelligibility.

The AAMS solution includes active noise reduction (ANR) and electrical noise reduction technology for reduced pilot stress and fatigue.

Air Commodore Richard Laurijssen of the RNLAF said: ‘The RNLAF has a strong and long-standing partnership with Terma, encompassing the majority of our aircraft. In this framework, we are confident that the Defence Material Organisation and Terma are committed to provide the RNLAF F-16’s with the new AAMS/ANR capability to increase the operational effectiveness and safety of the aircraft and pilot.’
