Inzpire to equip Indonesian Air Force with GECO Air mission system
Inzpire and in-country partner PT Kadomas Aviasindo will provide the GECO Air mission system to the Tentara Nasional Indonesia-Angkatan Udara (Indonesian Air Force).
The tablet-based mission system will be installed on the airforce's fleet of five fixed-wing aircraft types.
The Indonesian Air Force will equip 18 different fighter and rotary wing platforms with GECO Air.
Inzpire business development head Alex Mitchell said: “Once in service, GECO will significantly enhance situational awareness for the Tentara Nasional Indonesia-Angkatan Udara during front line fast jet operations and provide a cost-effective digital upgrade to in-cockpit avionics.
“It will also serve to significantly enhance airborne safety for the pilots using the equipment."
Designed to complement existing on-board avionics systems, GECO Air is claimed to add modern and powerful commercial off-the-shelf hardware technology to the cockpit.
The easy-to-upgrade system can either be used as a stand-alone device or integrated directly into an aircraft.
The GECO’s suite of situational awareness and safety assistance apps includes advanced navigation features overlaid on a wide range of mapping and satellite imagery, a worldwide aeronautical database, and tactical applications such as advanced threat displays.
All features of the system have been designed to buy aircrew time and to improve decision-making, according to the company.
Inzpire said that GECO's user interface supports the rapid assimilation of complex information.
The GECO system is currently in service with the Royal Navy, Army Air Corps, British Royal Air Force, and Royal Jordanian Air Force.
