Esterline visual systems for Typhoon trainers
BAE Systems has awarded a contract to Esterline to deliver two visual systems to the Eurofighter Typhoon simulator facilities at Royal Air Force Lossiemouth in Scotland, the company announced on 28 March.
Esterline will supply its TREALITY SEER full-flight visual display system under the contract, a compact training and simulation dome display that offers a seamless, spherical image with a high pixel fill factor. The new systems will provide air force pilots with high performance, high fidelity visual systems for operational training.
Deliveries will take place by the end of 2017.
Anthony Gregory, campaign delivery director at BAE Systems, said: 'The outstanding capability of the display system we have selected from Esterline was a key discriminator in awarding this contract and is vital in ensuring we deliver our training and support requirements to the Royal Air Force.'
Esterline has previously been contracted to provide simulation equipment to aid both Eurofighter Typhoon and Hawk fast jet trainer pilot training.
