Aero Simulation continues the B-52 training modernisation works with the most recent upgrades providing the ability for maintenance teams to train in an immersive environment.

Aero Simulation has won to extend its containerised Operational Flight Program (OFP) architecture to the USAF B-52 Stratofortress training system.

The upgrades will allow the platform to facilitate collaborative, multi-role immersive learning capabilities in support of maintenance training for the B-52. The high-fidelity immersive environments and interactive virtual training content will enable USAF personnel to train anytime, anywhere and on any device.

The contract award, announced on 6 September, was issued by the USAF Simulator Program Office (SPO) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in coordination with Air Force Strike Command (AFGSC) and its S&T office.
