vIITSEC 2020: Collins gains Griffin-2 launch customers in Asia-Pacific

3rd December 2020 - 09:10 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

​Visual display system features ultra-high resolution, brightness and contrast

Two undisclosed fast-jet training programmes in the Asia-Pacific region are using the new Griffin-2 visual display system (VDS) from Collins Aerospace.

Orders have been placed for 20 systems over the next five years with continued support through 2030, the company announced on 1 December.

The value of the deal was undisclosed.

Griffin-2 features ultra-high resolution, brightness and contrast for a 360-degree immersive military training jet experience. Its open architecture enables users to operate multiple projector types and easily modify and upgrade the system for more tailored exercises.

The new system offers a fully integrated display and image generator ‘at a lower acquisition cost with reduced life-cycle costs’, Collins Aerospace claimed.

Griffin-2 is based on the original Griffin system, which Shephard Defence Insight describes as a high-resolution, rear-projected dome that gives high image contrast across multiple channels, as well as modular FOV up to full dome coverage.
