Collins Aerospace Launches Griffin-2 Visual Display System in Asia-Pacific Region


Reading time ( words)

Collins Aerospace Systems, a unit of Raytheon Technologies Corp. has announced that its new Griffin™-2 visual display system (VDS) is set to launch with two undisclosed fast-jet programs in the Asia-Pacific region. The company has received orders for 20 systems over the next five years, and continued support through 2030.

Building on the success of its Griffin™ rear-projected dome, the Griffin™-2 features ultrahigh resolution, brightness and contrast for an unparalleled 360-degree immersive training experience for military fast-jets. The VDS is designed with an open architecture that enables customers to use multiple projector types and easily modify and upgrade the system for more tailored exercises. The new system offers a completely integrated display and image generator at a lower acquisition cost with reduced life-cycle costs. 

“With a 10-year legacy of display-system experience, Collins Aerospace knows the critical role that the VDS plays in training fast-jet pilots and we continued to enhance our offerings with the latest technology and simplified design,” states Nick Gibbs, vice president and general manager, Simulation Solutions & Services, Collins Aerospace. “The Griffin™-2 takes fast-jet training to the next level with increased performance and provides the warfighter the highest fidelity of training in the market.”

The Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap for Aerospace and Defense

11/24/2020 | Jeff Demmin, Keysight Technologies
Most people in the semiconductor industry are familiar with the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), which provided guidance for the industry starting in 1991 (as the National Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors). As the benefits of Moore’s Law became more difficult and more expensive to achieve, the organization decided to publish a final version in 2016. The baton was handed to the Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR), with the realization that heterogeneous integration—assembling different types of devices rather than monolithic fabrication—is an important enabler for continued progress in the semiconductor industry.

I-Connect007 Editor's Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

09/04/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
When compiling my Top Five, I tend to let the reader views guide my choices. Oh, sure, sometimes a news item is significant well beyond the reads it receives; that’s why this is an editor’s picks, not a strict Top Five. Still, readership habits inform my choices. That makes it even more interesting when a week demonstrates a theme so convenient as to seem contrived. Take this week, for example. In this week’s top five, four of the top five are news reports on mil-aero topics. You, dear readers, gobbled up the military and aerospace news this week. The outlier is, as we all would expect, a conference report from our very own Pete Starkey.
