SEATTLE, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Boeing and Havelsan have completed a joint hardware installation project successfully advancing a Turkish air force early warning aircraft simulator program.

U.S. company Boeing and Havelsan are under contract as part of the Peace Eagle Airborne Early Warning and Control program in Turkey. The Boeing and Havelsan team successfully completed the hardware installation for the AEW&C program's Mission Simulator and Mission Support Center.

The AEW&C program is a Turkish air force initiative to reduce the costs of aircrew training for the Peace Eagle Airborne Early Warning aircraft. Officials say Boeing and Havelsan announced the completed installation of mission, flight and replay planning terminals and Electronic Support Measures workstation hardware.

"These installations are a major step forward for the program and set the stage for formal integration of the hardware and software, as well as for developmental test and evaluation in spring 2010," Mark Ellis, Boeing Peace Eagle program manager, said in a statement.
