Aircraft -maker Boeing and Elbit Systems have come together to jointly collaborate on a joint distributed simulation project that will link a Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet simulator in St. Louis with an AEL Avionics Laboratory simulator in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Together, both corporations can demonstrate current simulation and network technology as well as the capabilities of the Super Hornet. The demonstration also will explore the potential for other technology collaborations, such as Super Hornet interoperability with Brazilian fighter aircraft. The distributed simulation project is expected to be completed this summer. “By working together on today's aircraft avionics, Boeing and Elbit engineers will be able to chart a plan for the future,” said Mike Gibbons, vice president, Boeing F/A-18 and EA-18 Programs. “These collaborative efforts provide opportunities for international growth for Boeing and our global supply chain.” A robust plan has been conceived for technology exchange in the areas of simulation and avionics support for Brazil’s F-X2 program. Earlier this month, Boeing and Elbit Systems signed a Memorandum of Understanding that supports the development of advanced avionics capabilities in Brazil that will be introduced to AEL Sistemas. Elbit was selected to provide the Large Area Display (LAD) system that will be part of an advanced cockpit system to be offered on Boeing fighter aircraft, including the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and the F-15 family of aircraft, including the Silent Eagle. As a key supplier to Boeing fighter aircraft programs, Elbit, through Boeing, is investing in the development of advanced cockpit avionics capabilities at AEL Sistemas.
