Orbit Communication Systems Inc., a leading provider of airborne communications systems, announced Tuesday that Boeing selected its Orion Audio Management System (AMS) for the U.S. Air Force's new T-7A Red Hawk advanced pilot training system.
The Boeing T-7A is a purpose-built jet trainer specifically designed to provide advanced pilot training for future fighter and bomber pilots.
Orion is an innovative and highly resilient IP-based airborne audio management system designed to support diverse network-based communication products and applications. It is easily adapted across a broad range of airborne platforms, including helicopters, commercial airliners, mission aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles and fighters.
Boeing selected the Orion AMS in the Engineering and Manufacturing Development phase of the project before the T-7A enters production. The initial program will include approximately 350 aircraft.
