In a partnership with L3 Aerospace Systems, L3 Link is providing a new RealitySeven™-based Level D-equivalent OFT for delivery to RAF Waddington in June 2018. The device will contain the latest avionics upgrades headed for the RC-135 fleet.
RC-135 OFT Highlights:
- High-definition, seven-channel out-the-window visual system and six-degree-of-freedom motion platform
- CFR Part 60 Level D-compliant aerodynamic model based on actual recently collected flight test data and dynamics, including data from air refueling with KC-135 and KC-10. This aero model was developed by L3 Link for the current RC-135 devices located at Offutt AFB, Nebraska. The aero model installation by L3 Link is the first successful Aerial Refueling Airplane Simulator Qualification (ARASQ) Level C-compliant model delivered and accepted for widebody aircrew training
- Link will deliver a second RC-135 OFT to Offutt, concurrent with further updated fleet avionics, in 2020
