Elbit Systems of America to Supply Mission Critical Products, Vital Training Systems to Boeing’s T-X Aircraft
Fort Worth, Texas, September, 16, 2019 – Elbit Systems of America will supply a number of products – including cockpit displays, datalinks and embedded training capabilities – to Boeing’s T-X advanced pilot training aircraft for the United States Air Force.
“We are supremely proud to be trusted by Boeing and the U.S. Air Force to supply these mission critical products and vital training systems,” said Raanan Horowitz, president and CEO of Elbit Systems of America. “Future pilots will greatly benefit from the revolutionary flight training capabilities featured in the T-X.”
Elbit Systems of America will provide a number of key components including: large area displays, engine fuel indicators, upfront control panels, and Head Up Displays and their associated line replaceable units. In addition, the company will supply air and ground datalinks enabling the T-X’s onboard virtual avionics and the Integrated Live/Virtual/Constructive capability.
This cutting edge capability simulates the advanced avionics, sensors and weapons utilized by 5th generation fighters like the F-22 and F-35, enabling T-X pilots to virtually operate those systems while flying the lower cost-to-operate T-X aircraft. For a quarter of a century, employees of Elbit Systems of America have been entrusted with performing high-quality work for the U.S. government and industry partners. In addition to providing advanced avionics, helmet mounted displays, mission computers and electro-optical and precision targeting solutions, the company provides sustainment and support solutions for aircraft and ground vehicles; and life-saving medical instrumentation technologies.
