The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration, FMV, has awarded a new order to HiQ for the maintenance of simulators for training fighter pilots on the JAS 39 Gripen.

HiQ Mälardalen managing director Anders Nilsson said that this latest assignment involved developing systems further and integrating systems in the best, most cost-effective way in order to satisfy current training requirements for JAS training simulators.

“Training simulators for the JAS 39 Gripen represent advanced technology that requires knowledge not only of the domain concerned, but also specialist expertise in technical communication, integration, testing and simulation which in our case are enhanced by a close working relationship” Nilsson added.

Simulators to be supported under the SKr13.1m ($2.04m) order will be used to train both Swedish and foreign pilots to fly the JAS 39 Gripen.
