Collins Aerospace Systems, a unit of Raytheon Technologies Corp., is set to launch its new Griffin-2 visual display system (VDS) with two undisclosed fast-jet programs in the Asia-Pacific region. The company has received orders for 20 systems over the next five years, and continued support through 2030.
Building on the success of its Griffin rear-projected dome, the Griffin-2 features ultrahigh resolution, brightness and contrast for a 360-degree immersive training experience for military fast-jets. The VDS is designed with an open architecture that enables customers to use multiple projector types and easily modify and upgrade the system for more tailored exercises. The new system offers a completely integrated display and image generator at a lower acquisition cost with reduced life-cycle costs.
“With a 10-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,” states Nick Gibbs, vice president and general manager, Simulation Solutions & Services, Collins Aerospace. “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.”
