Tuesday, 5 May 2020

Orbit Communication Systems Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Orbit Communication Systems Ltd., a leading provider of airborne communications solutions, announced today that Boeing selected its Orion AMS for the U.S. Air Force's new T-7A Red Hawk advanced pilot training system.

Recognized for its innovative design, 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 features 3D audio, adaptive noise reduction and voice-activated detection as standard, and patented dual IP ring topology provides unsurpassed system redundancy. It is easily adapted across a broad range of airborne platforms, including helicopters, commercial airliners, mission aircraft, UAVs and fighters.

Boeing selected the Orion AMS in the Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) phase of the project before the T-7A enters production. The initial program will include approximately 350 aircraft.

"With our 20-year history with Boeing, we are excited to be the audio management system supplier for the next-generation trainer," noted Dany Eshchar, Orbit's CEO. "This selection further positions the Orion as the most advanced and versatile communication management system available."
