“We’re now into the fourth generation of image generator upgrades in our Boeing Apache relationship dating back to 1997,” said Ridgeway.

She said creating a synthetic environment for attack helicopter aircrew training is one of the most demanding flight simulation challenges.

“Combining LCT requirements for high-fidelity, realistic and accurate correlated simulations of the Apache’s FLIR sensor imaging and weapons systems is a challenge with significant complexity,” she said. “Only Rockwell Collins provides the industry leading image generator system and databases capable of meeting the discriminating needs of the Longbow Crew Trainer.”

The Rockwell Collins EP-8000 image generator system introduces a new paradigm for high-end training applications. It combines groundbreaking realism and performance with a scalable, adaptable design that meets the most complex training requirements now and in the future – at the lowest life-cycle cost.
