GECO to be Installed Across Helicopter Fleet
The UK Ministry of Defence has selected Inzpire for its Rotary Wing Cockpit Situational Awareness Tool (CSAT) Programme.
CSAT will see British APACHE, CHINOOK, MERLIN and Bell helicopters equipped with Inzpire’s Graphical Electronic Cockpit Organiser (GECO) system, which will provide a capability to support mitigation of safety risks such as wire strikes. The use of GECO will also improve effectiveness through the processing and display of mission data and
aeronautical information. For MERLIN aircraft, GECO also provides a display of data generated by the aircraft’s maritime Automatic Identification System.
This latest success means that GECO is now in service on 18 different fast jet, rotary-wing and multi- engine aircraft types, including F-16, HAWK, HERCULES and BLACKHAWK. In total, over 400 GECO Systems are currently in use with the Royal Navy, Army Air Corps and Royal Air Force, along with overseas customers including the Royal Jordanian Air Force and the Indonesian Air Force. Inzpire also provides the Mission Support System for the UK’s PUMA helicopter force.
