Indra is developing a new simulator for Eurofighter Typhoon multi-role combat aircraft, under an agreement signed between the German and Spanish defence ministries.
The new, improved version of Pilot Synthetic Training System (SPTS) is expected to improve radar, electronic defence systems and avionics capabilities of the advanced fighter jet.
Expected to be delivered by the end of 2019, the simulator will train pilots by realistically replicating the present Eurofighter configuration.
The new high-fidelity technology employed by the simulator is claimed to increase the quality with which scenarios are recreated in the system viewer, Indra stated.
Indra is tasked with providing mission planning, instruction positioning and exercise debriefing systems, as well as equipping all of them with a common human-machine interface for planning, monitoring and controlling the tactical environment.
Indra has also been contracted by the Spanish Ministry of Defense to develop two Part Task Trainers (PTTs) for the Eurofighter.
These PTTs are simulators that will be developed exclusively for the Spanish Armed Forces.
The simulators will be delivered in December 2018 and will be implemented at the airbases in Albacete (Wing 14) and Morón (Wing 11) to provide pilots with initial basic training.
Indra said it is not only the second largest supplier of avionics equipment and systems for the Eurofighter, but also a benchmark in testing systems, simulation equipment, and maintenance solutions.
To date, Indra has delivered more than 200 simulators to over fifty customers across the world, including the largest aircraft manufacturers.
