The contract includes delivery of 46 chipsets for RNLAF F-16 aircraft – 45 ea. F-16A (single seat) and 1 ea. F-16B (dual seat) aircraft and will support the aircraft in its important remaining years covering several international missions.
The advanced communications and situational awareness solution provides enhancement of the pilot’s situational awareness, survivability, and reduction of his/her workload by presenting audio warnings/cues and radio messages in a full 360 degree spherical representation. Thereby enabling the pilot to get the dynamically updated warning tone/cue in the true direction of the threat and spatially separating radio communication for increased speech intelligibility. The system also provides Active Noise Reduction (ANR) and Electrical Noise Reduction (ENR) for reduced pilot stress and fatigue.
This adds yet another Terma product to the RNLAF fleet of aircraft and is a testament to the many years of cooperative efforts between RNLAF and Terma to ensure optimum survivability solutions for the air crew.
