Raytheon Technologies company Collins Aerospace Systems has secured orders for the supply of 20 new Griffin-2 visual display systems (VDS).

The updated VDS will launch with two fast-jet programmes, which have not been disclosed, in the Asia-Pacific region.

The company will deliver the 20 systems over the next five years. It will also offer continued support until 2030.

Griffin-2 builds on the company’s original Griffin rear-projected dome, which has been serving as a 360⁰ immersive training system for over ten years.

Featuring an open architecture, Griffin-2 offers ultra-high resolution, brightness and contrast training experience for military fast jets.

The VDS can be used with different projector types, as well as provide ease of modification and upgrade to meet the requirements of exercises.

It provides an affordable fully integrated display and image generator with decreased lifecycle costs.

Collins Aerospace Simulation Solutions and Services vice-president and general manager Nick Gibbs said: “With a ten-year legacy of display-system experience, Collins Aerospace knows the critical role that the VDS plays in training fast-jet pilots and we continued to enhance our offerings with the latest technology and simplified design.

“The Griffin-2 takes fast-jet training to the next level with increased performance and provides the warfighter the highest fidelity of training in the market.”

In October, Collins Aerospace was selected by the USAF to equip the F-15 fleet with its ACES 5 ejection seat.
