Elbit Systems has announced that it was awarded a contract valued at approximately USD 36 million to supply four F-16 Full Mission Simulators (FMS) to the Polish Air Force (PLAF). The contract is to be performed over a 28-month period.
According to the company, the simulation technology at the core of the mission training centre enables higher quality training and improves mission readiness. Featuring a 360-degree display system, the interconnected simulators are expected to provide a high fidelity, full mission training experience. By providing an immersive real flight experience with no safety limitations, Elbit Systems’ training solution is to provide PLAF F-16 pilots with a range of skills from basic familiarity with the aircraft to advanced combat flight competencies in complex operational environments. Elbit Systems emphasises that its training and simulation technologies can also provide the future simulation infrastructure of the PLAF, enabling connectivity to additional training devices for live, virtual and constructive training.
