UK based Inzpire along with PT Kadomas Aviasindo will provide its GECO Air tablet-based mission system to Indonesia’s Air Force to deliver enhanced situational awareness and safety benefits across a fleet of five fixed wing aircraft types.

Alex Mitchell, Head of Business Development for Inzpire said, “Inzpire and our business partners PT Kadomas Aviasindo are delighted to have been awarded a contract to deliver our GECO tablet-based mission system to the Indonesian Air Force.

Once in service, GECO will significantly enhance situational awareness for the TNI-AU during front line Fast Jet operations and provide a cost-effective digital upgrade to in-cockpit avionics. It will also serve to significantly enhance airborne safety for the pilots using the equipment.”

This is Inzpire’s second export success, following the provision of GECO to the fighter jets and helicopters of the Royal Jordanian Air Force.

GECO Air is designed to complement existing on-board avionics systems by bringing modern and powerful commercial off-the-shelf hardware technology to the cockpit and providing a cost-effective, easy-to-upgrade solution. GECO can be used as a stand-alone device or integrated directly into an aircraft.

Modern air missions feature vast amounts of complex data from aeronautical, geospatial, meteorological and intelligence sources, which must be digested and understood in order to be exploited most effectively.

The GECO system has a proven pedigree in training and combat operations around the globe and is in use with the UK Royal Navy, Army Air Corps and Royal Air Force, as well as with the Royal Jordanian Air Force.  Following delivery to the TNI-AU, GECO will be in everyday use with 18 different fighter and rotary wing platforms worldwide, across a wide variety of missions.

GECO Air will be on display on Inzpire’s stand at DSEI along with the GECO Mission Support System and the exciting new GECO World concept. Visit the team at stand S9-244, from 12-15 September 2017 for more information.
