The database will be used by Elbit Systems in its mission training center (MTC) for pilots of the Israel Air Force’s (IAF) F-16C/D and F-16I fighter aircraft.

“Presagis will be providing Elbit Systems with a visual database based on the CDB specification to support F-16 pilot training in fast jet, low-altitude, and high resolution flight scenarios,” said president Guillaume Hervé. “The use of Presagis products to create a database based on CDB allows for correlation across applications while enabling the reuse of existing environment databases and models, as well as fast and seamless updates to databases.”

The Elbit MTC display systems' image generator is based on Vega Prime, the Presagis off-the-shelf visualization software that offers out-of-the-box support for the CDB visual database that will be delivered for use in the pilot training application.
