The T-100 Integrated Training System (ITS) is the solution offered by Leonardo DRS in the T-X competition for the U.S. Air Force’s advanced pilot training system program.
The T-100, the next generation advanced jet trainer based on Leonardo’s M-346, is a twin-engine, tandem-seat aircraft purpose-designed for a wide range of training missions, long-term reliability and cost-effective operations.
These characteristics – along with its proven Integrated Training System (ITS) solution comprised of Simulators and Ground Based Training devices, including the most advanced and already operational Live, Virtual, and Constructive environment in the world – make the T-100 ITS the best, proven, low-cost, low-risk solution to train U.S. Air Force next-generation jet fighter pilots.
The updated cockpit avionics with the latest Large Area Display (LAD) and the advanced mission management suite offered by the T-100’s Embedded Tactical Training Simulation (ETTS) system, make the T-100 truly representative of the 5th generation combat aircraft.
Team T-100 is comprised of Leonardo DRS as prime contractor, supported by CAE USA in the design and development of the Ground Based Training System (GBTS) and Honeywell Aerospace in providing the propulsion engines F124.
