Lockheed Martin to enhance F-16 training programs in two countries with Rockwell Collins display systems

November 27, 2017

 

Rockwell Collins has been selected by Lockheed Martin to provide display systems for two international F-16 training program customers. The solutions include customized configurations of Rockwell Collins’ Griffin rear-projection dome andSpectraView™ display systems.

 

“With only slight modifications to existing products, international customers will be able to provide pilots with modern, high-fidelity training that’s tailored to their environment,” said Nick Gibbs, vice president and general manager, Simulation & Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “Our readiness-without-boundaries approach to training solutions is highlighted in the flexibility of this product to meet unique F-16 training requirements.”

 

The 360-degree Griffin rear-projection dome configuration will include an expanded ingress and egress system to accommodate the larger cockpit of an F-16 and capitalizes on projector capabilities for enhanced night vision goggle (NVG) usage, offering a heightened sense of realism in nighttime training operations.

 

The tailored, front projection SpectraView solution will be the first of its kind to incorporate full NVG functionality while boasting a wide field of view, wrapping 300 degrees around the user, 120 degrees above and 40 degrees below. The system also uses industry commercial off-the-shelf projectors.
