The U.S. Air Force has awarded a contract to L-3 Link Simulation & Training, a systems integrator that supplies advanced simulation systems, of Texas to modernize two Pakistan air force F-16C training simulators’ visual system displays using SimuSphere HD-9.
SimuSphere HD-9 features enhanced, realistic tactical training through the use of high-definition databases, image generators and the visual display. Through programming, it will also simulate geographically specific environment scenarios.
“SimuSphere HD-9, combined with the trainers’ overall HD World capabilities, will allow Pakistan air force F-16 pilots to gain training credit equivalent to live training,” says Leonard Genna, L-3 Link’s president.
L-3 Link said the upgraded F-16 Block 52 aircrew training devices will also feature inclusion of the company’s Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System. The systems will be delivered to Pakistan and installed next year, the company said.
