GORIZIA, Italy, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Italian defense electronics manufacturer Selex Galileo has received about $10.4 million in contracts for aircraft simulation systems.
The identities of the customers weren't disclosed but the company said some of the units would be for non-Italian clients. The simulation systems would be used to train pilots and mission operators of both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.
"Selex Galileo has more than 10 years of experience in providing training systems for program such as the Eurofighter Typhoon, Tornado and M-346," said Gianfranco Terrando, senior vice president of the company's Air Systems, UAS and Simulation business unit.
"We are confident that this experience will allow us to continue to develop our business relating to Typhoon training and will put us in good stead to play a leading role in new programs and with new platforms.
"The simulation business is dominated by big players but we believe that our expertise in sensors and mission systems, high level of technological innovation and closeness with our customers will allow us to compete strongly in the market by delivering highly customized solutions that meet customer requirements in terms of capability, performance and cost."
Selex Galileo produces the Aircrew Synthetic Training Aids system for the Eurofighter Typhoon system.
