Airbus Defence and Space selects Reiser Simulation and Training for the Provision of Eurofighter Synthetic Training System Cockpits Replacement

Berg, Germany, October 12, 2020 – Today’s aviation training requirements are changing, especially in the field of synthetic pilot training. The German MOD has contracted Airbus Defence and Space to extend the Eurofighter/Typhoon Pilot Synthetic Training System (PSTS) at the Main Operating Base (MOB) in Laage and introduce state-of-the-art simulator cockpits at all Eurofighter MOBs in Germany.

Reiser Simulation and Training GmbH (RST) has been contracted by Airbus Defence and Space to provide all high-fidelity simulator cockpits under the Eurofighter/Typhoon PSTS programme.

The contract includes the provision of 2 cockpits to extend the training capability in Laage from 2 to 4 simulators and the replacement of 10 cockpits at all the German Eurofighter MOBs in Laage, Neuburg, Nörvenich, Wittmund, and the Central Integration Facility at Airbus in Manching. All cockpit replicas will be equipped with a full suite of cockpit displays and control panels including a newly developed fully functional head-up-display (HUD). They will also comprise RST´s g-seat motion cueing system, simulated anti-g inflation system as well as breathing air system (SAGS). “We are proud of the continuation of the long-term cooperation within the Eurofighter/Typhoon programme and convinced that we can further enhance pilot safety and mission readiness with our high-fidelity training systems”, says Dr. Roman Sperl, CEO, RST GmbH and points out that the company has designed and delivered more than 30 cockpits to all Eurofighter user nations during the last 15 years. “Only a company with wide-ranging expertise will be in the position to shape the future of synthetic flight training”, Dr. Sperl adds.
