[Avionics Today 04-15-2016] Flatiron Solutions has signed a new agreement with Airbus Defense and Space to formalize the team’s entry of the Eurofighter Typhoon — produced by a consortium that includes Airbus Group, Alenia Aermacchi, and BAE Systems — for meeting the Danish Fighter Replacement Program’s (DFRP) requirements. The DFRP is evaluating entries on behalf of the Danish government to support the replacement of the Royal Danish Air Force’s (RDAF) aging F-16 fleet, which is due to be phased out of service in the near term.
As part of the agreement, Flatirons will provide Corena Suite software for production and ongoing management of Danish Eurofighter Typhoon maintenance publications, including airframe and engine manuals. The Flatirons Multi-Spec Solution software included as part of the entry provides full content lifecycle management for mobile maintenance and technical operations. The teaming agreement builds on a long-term partnership between Flatirons and Airbus Group, including collaboration in support of Airbus’s NH90 and Tiger programs since 2001.
