ST. LOUIS, Nov. 29, 2011. The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] received a $20 million contract in September from the U.S. Air Force to upgrade the visual systems in the F-15C Mission Training Centers. Twelve MTCs, located at Langley Air Force Base, Va., Royal Air Force Lakenheath, United Kingdom, and Kadena Air Base, Japan, will be upgraded with Boeing’s Constant Resolution Visual System (CRVS).

CRVS is the centerpiece of a complete training suite that provides 360 degrees of immersive training. By using standard, off-the-shelf projectors, the system is able to take advantage of the rapidly improving technology emerging in the commercial marketplace.

The Boeing CRVS reduces total system life cycle cost by minimizing the number of projectors in the system. The system is compatible with a full array of fast jet and rotary wing cockpits.
