Advanced support systems for Gripen and Viggen to be further developed

Advanced support systems for Gripen and Viggen to be further developed JAS39 Gripen's advanced planning and evaluation system together with the training system for the Viggen fighter aircraft are to be further developed by AerotechTelub. Modern, complex fighter aircraft demand advanced computer-based ground systems for the planning and evaluation of every air sortie. These systems are an important part of the training of new pilots and for the Air Force's tactical development. For the planning of air sorties, a system called PLA, Planning and Analysis is used, that has primarily been developed by AerotechTelub. For the evaluation and analysis of air sorties with JAS39 Gripen, a very advanced system called UTA is used for the purpose. UTA stands for Utbildning Taktisk Analys (Training Tactical Analysis) developed by AerotechTelub. "The Defence Matériel Administration has now given us the confidence to further develop these tools" says business unit manager Stefan Storm. "In addition, we have been given the assignment to produce a further generation of the training system UTB that reproduces flights as they can be seen in the JA37 Viggen. The system is used for e.g, instruction and demonstration for students, reproduction and evaluation of student and pilot performances, the learning of system functions together with the processing of data and generation of reports". The order is for SEK 18M with an option of a further SEK 13M.
