Esterline CMC Electronics launches Cockpit 4000 NexGen core avionics for military trainer, ISR and light attack aircraft

Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) will launch its new Cockpit 4000 NexGen technology demonstrator at the Farnborough Air Show. The Cockpit 4000 NexGen avionics suite is a configurable, fully integrated glass cockpit solution featuring a Large Area Display (LAD) with touchscreen technology. It is designed to enhance mission effectiveness and provide cross-platform training flexibility for advanced military trainers, ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) and light attack aircraft.

The Cockpit 4000 NexGen core avionics include CMC's new 20" x 7" LAD with touchscreen technology as well as a new all-digital raster capable Head-Up Display (HUD). Both are supported by a modular, integrated avionics computer built on an open architecture design which allows for growth. These powerful core avionics ensure improved information management and support for netcentric warfare operations.

Greg Yeldon, president of Esterline CMC Electronics, said: "Our new-generation Cockpit 4000 NexGen leverages many of the benefits of CMC's proven Cockpit 4000 which is flying on several major trainer and light attack platforms. Student pilots currently trained with a CMC equipped cockpit such as the T-6B and T-6C, KT-1C and KT-1T, Hawk Mk51 and MK66, will experience a seamless transition to an advanced, lead-in fighter trainer with our new Cockpit 4000 NexGen core avionics. In addition, student pilots trained with our Cockpit 4000 NexGen will be able to transition efficiently to fifth-generation fighters such as the JSF F-35."

The new LAD delivers a streamlined presentation tailored to the pilot's display preference. The LAD can be easily configured across multiple windows for the integration of tactical data sources such as FLIR and tactical datalink or to enable quick moding to set up air-to-air or air-to-ground data management. The Cockpit 4000 NexGen can provide pilots with instant access to critical data, allowing them to effectively manage information in the cockpit and maintain situational awareness.

The Cockpit 4000 NexGen supports a large format Digital Moving Map and provides Synthetic Vision System capability. It integrates with an optional Helmet Mounted Display. For training applications, display symbology can be easily configured to represent various front-line fighters such as the JSF and F-22. The avionics suite includes live and simulated weapons delivery capabilities and will comply with the requirements of flying within U.S. National Air Space.
