Boeing to feature new Super Hornet cockpit display at CANSEC

Boeing [NYSE: BA] will demonstrate a new, larger cockpit display as part of its F/A-18 Super Hornet simulator at the CANSEC 2010 defense and security trade show. The exhibition will be held June 2-3 in Ottawa.

The new display is a single-screen configuration that enables aircrews to view more battlespace information within a larger viewing area.

"The new, larger display is an option Super Hornet customers will be able to incorporate as they determine specific capabilities for their unique requirements," said Mike Gibbons, F/A-18E/F program manager for Boeing. "This new display is one example of the evolutionary approach of incorporating ever-increasing capabilities into the Super Hornet, with low risk for customers. We continue to expand the Super Hornet's multirole capabilities with continued on-cost and on-schedule performance for our customers."

The Boeing Super Hornet is a multirole aircraft, able to perform virtually every mission in the tactical spectrum, including air superiority, day/night strike with precision-guided weapons, fighter escort, close air support, suppression of enemy air defenses, maritime strike, reconnaissance, forward air control and tanker missions. Boeing has delivered more than 430 F/A-18E/Fs to the U.S. Navy. Every Super Hornet produced has been delivered on or ahead of schedule and on budget.

Boeing also is bringing the P-8A Poseidon demonstration trailer, which includes operator stations and a cockpit simulator, to CANSEC. A derivative of the highly successful and reliable Next-Generation 737, the P-8 is a long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft. Other products being showcased at Boeing's booth include the C-17 Globemaster III airlifter, the CH-47 Chinook helicopter, the V-22 Osprey tiltrotor, and the ScanEagle unmanned aerial vehicle.
