Elbit Systems of America will supply cockpit displays, datalinks and embedded training capabilities to Boeing’s T-X advanced pilot training aircraft for the United States Air Force.
Raanan Horowitz, president and CEO of Elbit Systems of America, said: “We are supremely proud to be trusted by Boeing and the U.S. Air Force to supply these mission critical products and vital training systems. Future pilots will greatly benefit from the revolutionary flight training capabilities featured in the T-X.”
Elbit Systems of America will provide a number of key components including large area displays, engine fuel indicators, upfront control panels, and head up displays and their associated line replaceable units.
In addition, the company will supply air and ground datalinks enabling the T-X’s onboard virtual avionics and the Integrated Live/Virtual/Constructive capability that simulates the advanced avionics, sensors and weapons utilised by 5th generation fighters like the F-22 and F-35, enabling T-X pilots to virtually operate those systems while flying the lower cost-to-operate T-X aircraft.
Elbit Systems of America supplies advanced avionics, helmet mounted displays, mission computers and electro-optical and precision targeting systems, as well as sustainment and support solutions for aircraft and ground vehicles and medical instrumentation technologies.
