CAE and Eurofighter Simulation Systems (ESS) have renewed collaboration agreement related to the provision of visual systems on the Eurofighter Typhoon Aircrew Synthetic Training Aids (ASTA) program.
Under the Eurofighter ASTA program, ESS serves as the prime contractor and design authority for the comprehensive suite of Eurofighter training systems operated by the four Eurofighter partner nations (United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, and Italy) as well as Austria.
CAE has provided the visual systems required as part of the Eurofighter ASTA program, and under terms of the renewed collaboration agreement will continue to work exclusively through ESS on the provision of visual systems on Eurofighter ASTA devices.
"ESS delivers value to all Eurofighter customers by helping ensure the highest quality training systems are delivered in support of one of the world's most advanced and capable combat aircraft," said Ian Bell, CAE's Vice President and General Manager, Europe/Middle East/Africa.
The comprehensive visual solution offered by CAE for the Eurofighter ASTA program includes the next-generation CAE Medallion-6000 image generator as well as display systems and database development tools.
"In the coming years there are opportunities to upgrade the visual systems on existing Eurofighter training devices operated by the partner nations, as well as potentially provide additional systems as part of any Eurofighter export sale,” said Francisco Munoz, Managing Director, Eurofighter Simulation Systems GmbH.
