Boeing and Elbit Systems partner for distributed simulation project for Super Hornet aircraft

SANTIAGO, Chile, 28 March 2012. The Boeing Co. [NYSE: BA] and Elbit Systems are collaborating 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.

The effort brings together Boeing and Elbit in order to demonstrate current simulation and network technology as well as the capabilities of the Super Hornet. The demonstration will also 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.

Boeing and Elbit Systems are developing a plan 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 a cockpit system to be offered on Boeing fighter aircraft, such as the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and the F-15 family of aircraft, including the Silent Eagle. As a supplier to Boeing fighter aircraft programs, Elbit, through Boeing, is investing in the development of cockpit avionics capabilities at AEL Sistemas.

Elbit representatives recently met with the Boeing Super Hornet team in St. Louis to begin outlining working plans for developing the avionics and the LAD.

The Boeing and Elbit teams also have begun exploring potential opportunities for other systems and support activities that would benefit AEL Sistemas and Brazilian industry in the near term and for the life cycle of the aircraft.
