Boeing will demonstrate new, larger cockpit display at Ottawa defense tradeshowJune 2nd, 2010 - 1:41 am ICT by BNO News
SEATTLE (BNO NEWS) – Boeing will demonstrate a new, larger cockpit display as part of its F/A-18 Super Hornet simulator at the CANSEC 2010 defense and security tradeshow, which will be held June 2-3 in Ottawa, Ontario, the company announced on Tuesday.
The new display is a single-screen configuration that enables aircrews to view more battlespace information within a larger field of view.
“The new, larger display is an option Super Hornet customers will be able to incorporate as they determine specific capabilities for their unique requirements,” said Mike Gibbons, F/A-18E/F program manager for Boeing. “This new display is one example of the evolutionary approach of incorporating ever-increasing capabilities into the Super Hornet, with low risk for customers. We continue to expand the Super Hornet’s multirole capabilities with continued on-cost and on-schedule performance for our customers.”
The Boeing Super Hornet is a multirole aircraft, able to perform virtually every mission in the tactical spectrum, including air superiority, day/night strikes with precision guided-weapons, fighter escort, close air support, suppression of enemy air defenses, maritime strike, reconnaissance, forward air control, and tanker missions. Boeing has delivered more than 430 F/A-18E/Fs to the U.S. Navy. Every Super Hornet produced has been delivered on or ahead of schedule and on budget.
Boeing also is bringing the P-8A Poseidon demonstration trailer, which includes operator stations and a cockpit simulator, to CANSEC. A derivative of the highly successful and reliable Next-Generation 737, the P-8 is a long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft.
Boeing has been a major contributor to the Canadian economy since 1919, generating approximately $1 billion in business annually.
