Gold Coast Australia – 24 August 2023. RYAN AEROSPACE (Australia) has won yet another major US Military Contract.

Working through Prime Contractor Vertex Solutions, RYAN AEROSPACE will be supplying the US Navy with advanced extended reality (XR) flight simulators, commonly referred to as Immersive Training Devices (ITDs) as part of a USD$28m deal. This procurement will bolster the Naval Aviation Training Next (ATN) program.

The contract will see delivery of fifty extended reality flight simulators (initially) using the already proven ITD which is very versatile and can be adapted to a wide range of aircraft platforms.

This represents a notable advancement for the Navy’s undergraduate pilot training program, bringing about improved efficiency in aviation training and aircrew production. This enhancement is set to result in substantial time and cost savings for the Navy.

Managing Director, Chris Ryan said he was thrilled to win this contract as it is the next stage of their ground-breaking work on the Pilot Training Transformation Program (PTT) where RYAN delivered close to 300 virtual reality training devices. The fact that they were designed with the future in mind, they can now rapidly and cost-effectively be transformed into mixed reality simulators for a different aircraft. This is important for government and taxpayers as they are getting great value for money.

The contract will be delivered within the next twelve months.

We look forward to working with Vertex Solutions and other partners including Varjo, Foxguard Solutions, TakeFlight, and ASTi on another exciting pilot training program in support of the US Department of Defense.
