Simloc to manufacture the active cabin for the Virtual RIG of the Eurofighter

The DGAM (General Directorate of Armament and Material) of the Ministry of Defense of the Government of Spain has hired Simloc to manufacture the cabin of the Eurofighter that will complete its virtual test bench (RIG) of the Logistics Center for Armament and Experimentation (CLAEX).

With this project, the Spanish SME Simloc, specialized in the flight simulation market, consolidates its strategy in the Defense Industry area, developing new capabilities to compete globally with innovative technological solutions. Its deep knowledge of the Defense sector allows Simloc to offer solutions focused on solving the contractor's operational needs in an efficient way.

Under the supervision of the DGAM Eurofighter Program Office, the manufacture of the cabin will require a high degree of coordination between CLAEX, international reference unit for experimental engineering development, and Simloc.

The project arises from the aspiration of the Spanish Air Force to expand its ability to run the Eurofighter application software in its virtual RIG, providing it with a man-machine interface, analogous to that of the aircraft, instead of being controlled by a computer.

In this way, test pilots could realistically evaluate new developments at a very early stage, eliminating many design repetitions and avoiding having to wait for actual flight tests to make evaluations, thereby saving time and money.

The Madrid company Simloc, reaches the Defense Industry with the same values that have consolidated it in the civil simulation sector: Quality, flexibility and dedication to service.
