Posted 5 December 2017 · Add Comment

Inzpire is pleased to announce that its GECO Air tablet-based mission system has entered service with the Indonesian Air Force – the Tentara Nasional Indonesia-Angkatan Udara.



Following on from the contract signing in summer 2017, Inzpire’s Missions Systems team undertook a comprehensive integration programme with the Indonesian Air Force, which culminated in a combined installation, training and flight test visit in early November.

The GECO System will be used by Su-27, Su-30, F-16, Hawk, T-50 and Super Tucano platforms which will reap the situational awareness and safety benefits of GECO’s wide range of features.

Jonny Smith, Inzpire’s Head of Mission Systems said: “We are delighted to welcome the Indonesian Air Force as our second export customer following our earlier success with the Royal Jordanian Air Force. The GECO System was incredibly well received during our training and installation visit and performed exceptionally well during flight test. We look forward to a growing relationship with the Indonesian Air Force and our in-country partner PT Kadomas. The project has been a great team effort and has delivered an outstanding operational capability within 4 months of contract signature.”

GECO Air is designed to complement existing on-board avionics systems by bringing modern and powerful commercial off-the-shelf hardware technology to the cockpit and providing a cost-effective, easy-to-upgrade solution. It can be used as a stand-alone device or integrated directly into an aircraft.

GECO’s suite of situational awareness and safety assistance apps includes advanced navigation features overlaid on a wide range of mapping and satellite imagery; a worldwide aeronautical database and tactical applications such as advanced threat displays – all designed to buy aircrew time and to improve and enhance the decision-making.
