Rockwell Collins awarded contract to provide Visual Display Systems for French Air Force FOMEDEC program

Rockwell Collins will be playing a key role in the French Air Force FOMEDEC training program by providing a robust, proven and state-of-the-art visual display system for the Pilatus PC-21 simulators.

Under a subcontract awarded by CAE, Rockwell Collins will develop two Spectraview Visual Display Systems (VDS) in Salt Lake City, support CAE with integrating the systems at the CAE facility in Montreal, and support the final installation in France. Rockwell Collins will also be providing training for maintaining and operating the VDS, as well as spares.

“This collaborative international program taps into the strengths of each team member and will provide French Air Force pilots with a highly realistic and reliable training environment to prepare them for any mission,” said Lee Obst, managing director, Rockwell Collins in Canada.
