DiSTI to deliver virtual maintenance trainer for Saab's Gripen E aircraft

ORLANDO, Fla. Saab officials selected DiSTI's Corp.'s VE Studio to build a virtual maintenance trainer (VMT) for the company’s Gripen E aircraft.

Leveraging VE Studio, the Gripen E project management team will be able to train their existing staff to use the platform for creating the aircraft’s VMT. This provides them with control of the content throughout the aircraft’s lifecycle allowing them to adapt to engineering, equipment, and procedural changes that take place during the initial deployment, through flight trials, into final customer delivery.

Markus Jellinek, Technical Project Manager of Saab explains, “We selected VE Studio for its ability to enable our team to quickly create and make changes to the training material without having to redevelop the software’s code base or having to expand our existing team. These elements, combined with DiSTI’s flexible licensing model allows us to scale up or down as our program requires, will save us significant delivery time, give us the flexibility to adapt to customer demands, add new features such as virtual and augmented reality and control our costs even further.”
