Hellenic Air Force Receives Second F-16C Block 52+ Aircrew Training Device

Network Capability With First Sim Allows Air-To-Air Combat Training

A second F-16C Block 52+ Aircrew Training Device (ATD) has been delivered to the Hellenic Air Force (HAF), L-3 Link Simulation & Training (L-3 Link) said Wednesday in a news release. The simulator, operated from the HAF's Araxos Air Base, is network-capable with the first F-16C Block 52+ ATD delivered to the HAF's Souda Bay military installation in 2005.

"The Hellenic Air Force F-16 Aircrew Training Devices are among the most advanced simulators in the world," said Leonard Genna, president of L-3 Link. "When these simulators are networked, it will represent the first time that any country other than the United States has been able to conduct long-haul networked exercises between F-16 high-fidelity training devices."

The ATD will enable HAF pilots to conduct simulated air-to-air and air-to-ground combat exercises. During simulation exercises, HAF F-16 pilots will be able to acquire and identify targets, and accurately deliver a wide range of ordnance. The trainer will also allow pilots to practice takeoffs and landings, aerial in-flight refueling, low-level flight, and emergency procedures. These training exercises, which will occur within a virtual, geo-specific database, can be impacted by a variety of simulated weather conditions.

HAF F-16 pilots will view out-the-window visual imagery on the trainer's nine-panel  visual display, which provides a 360-degree field-of-view. L-3's SimuView personal computer image generation system will power and correlate both out-the-window and cockpit sensor display imagery.
