Orbit Communication Systems Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Israel's Orbit Communication Systems Ltd., a leading provider of airborne communications solutions, announced May 5 that Boeing selected its Orion audio management system (AMS) for the US Air Force's new T-7A Red Hawk advanced pilot training system.

The Boeing T-7A is a purpose-built jet trainer specifically designed to provide advanced pilot training for future fighter and bomber pilots.

Orion is an innovative and highly resilient IP-based AMS designed to support diverse network-based communication products and applications. It is easily adapted across a broad range of airborne platforms, including helicopters, commercial airliners, mission aircraft, UAVs and fighters, the company said.

Boeing selected the Orion AMS in the Engineering and Manufacturing Development phase of the project before the T-7A enters production. The initial program will include approximately 350 aircraft.

"With our 20-year history with Boeing, we are excited to be the audio management system supplier for the next-generation trainer," noted Dany Eshchar, Orbit's CEO. "This selection further positions the Orion as the most advanced and versatile communication management system available."

Orion is an innovative airborne audio management system, featuring exceptional 3D Audio, Adaptive Noise Reduction and Voice-Activated Detection as standard features. A patented Dual IP Ring topology provides unsurpassed system redundancy, and the modular design permits reduced weight, incremental scalability and flexibility to suit both manned and unmanned aircraft of any size, according to the company.
