Terma North America has received a contract from the US Air National Guard/Air Force Reserve (ANG/AFRC) to provide a 3D-Audio System for their F-16 aircraft, the company announced on 19 February.

Work under the $44.3 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract is expected to be complete by January 2024.

The 3D-Audio and active noise reduction system enhances the pilot’s situational awareness, survivability, and reduction of workload by presenting audio warnings/cues and radio messages in a full 360-degree spherical representation.

This capability enables the pilot to get dynamically updated warning tones/cues in the true direction of the threat and spatially separated radio communication for increased speech intelligibility.

The system provides active noise reduction and electrical noise reduction to reduce pilot stress and fatigue.
