Boeing and industry supplier HAVELSAN have completed installation of Mission Simulator and Mission Support Center hardware for Turkey’s Peace Eagle Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) program.
The hardware installation was completed in October and November 2009 at the Peace Eagle Ground Support Center in Konya, Turkey. The team will next install software, then conduct an integration and checkout program.
The Mission Simulator features 10 mission consoles, instructor operator stations, and aircraft equipment rack assemblies. It will provide training for Turkish Air Force crews on a full range of AEW&C missions, reducing the monetary and environmental costs associated with training on the aircraft.
