T-100 Integrated Training System
T-100 Integrated Training System
The T-100 Integrated Training System (ITS) is the world’s most modern, advanced, and comprehensive 4th & 5th generation flying training system. The T-100 ITS builds upon the proven technology, systems and international success of Alenia Aermacchi’s M-346 advanced jet trainer system. The M-346 is currently in production for the Italian Air Force and the Republic of Singapore Air Force.
The T-100 ITS is the ideal system to replace the U.S. Air Force’s current fleet of aging T-38 advanced jet trainers. Incorporating state of the art U.S. technology, the T-100 ITS will provide the U.S. Air Force with the capability it needs today to meet the training requirements of tomorrow.
The Integrated Training System
The T-100 ITS is a total integrated training system that satisfies the complete advanced pilot training continuum, fully preparing pilots for the rigorous demands of 5th generation fighters such as the F-22 and F-35.
The T-100’s ground based training system (GBTS) includes the most advanced and flexible ground based training components available today – on par with front line 4th and 5th generation aircraft. The trainers are capable of comprehensive Distributed Mission Operations (DMO). The GBTS’s full mission simulator and part task trainers use the identical flight control software as the aircraft, enabling all training events to be introduced and practiced with the same aircraft feel and reactions prior to the students’ first exposure to the actual aircraft flight training mission.
The T-100’s GBTS includes:
- full mission simulators
- flight training devices
- simulation based training
- egress trainers
The T-100 Advanced Jet Trainer
Embodying the very best of aeronautical and aerodynamics engineering and incorporating unique U.S. Air Force requirements, the T-100 provides state of the art technology at the lowest acquisition and life cycle costs of any advanced trainer on the market.
The aircraft, designed specifically to meet the needs of air forces flying 4th & 5th generation aircraft, is capable of conducting:
- sustained high-g operations
- air refueling
- night vision imaging systems operations
- air-to-air intercepts
- data link operations
As a result of its multiple system redundancy including twin engines, twin hydraulic and twin electrical systems, the T-100 offers the highest level of safety in its class. The latest generation of avionics, state-of-the-art pilot-vehicle interface and the in-flight capability to simulate tactical scenarios, sensors and weapons immerse the pilots in a realistic and complex training environment.
The advanced jet training capability needed today to meet the training requirements of tomorrow.
