[Avionics Today 09-18-2014] Embraer has selected the Rockwell Collins EP-80 Image Generator and accompanying database for its Super Tucano flight simulator. The Rockwell Collins EP-80 is a commercial off-the-shelf PC image generator product family that delivers advanced weather effects, night vision and infrared sensors, realistic battlefield smoke, and helicopter rotor wash.
“This selection, which represents our first simulation and training agreement with Embraer, will provide Super Tucano pilots with highly realistic training, including superior scene fidelity, high image quality, and enhanced performance,” said Nelson Aquino, president of Rockwell Collins do Brasil.
The Super Tucano is a turboprop aircraft designed for military use and pilot training.
